Alerting General Information

Overview

The alerting feature of eth.events is capable of monitoring and alerting mostly all of the information that a blockchain emits.

If you haven’t checked yet, or just came here for the first time, you might contact us to get access to the alerting feature.

Make sure you can access the alerting feature by opening the Dashboard. You should see an (empty) list of alerting rules.

Frontend Usage

Just hit + New on the Dashboard page to add a new alerting rule. Give it a name, select the network and configure when your data is considered final. See the [Example section](#examples) for the actual configuration.

API Usage

You can access the API with cURL or your preferred REST library. See the documentation for authorization details.

Properties

After you visit the dashboard you might see an empty list, you should create one first.

Name

The name has just visible purpose.

Counter

An alert has a counter which shows how often an alert has been triggered since its creation. The counter is visible in the list overview.

Network

An alert is always linked to a specific network which can be chosen from the dropdown.

Confirmation Count

The block distance needed to trigger this alert. Using 0 means that it will triggered directly without waiting for a new block to confirm. Be aware that a reorg on the blockchain might happen and thus the alert will trigger false-positive results - you should wait at least 5 blocks to be on the safe side.

JSON Configuration

The definition of an alert is currently checked against a JSON schema in the background (and also before you save it). You can find help and the actual alerting schema here.
