What is the API-Integration StackPack?

The StackState API-Integration StackPack enables the StackState synchronization for the StackState's API-Integration Agents.

With API-Integration Agents you can run checks which connect to external systems like ServiceNow.

The StackState API-Integration Agent is open source: view the source code on GitHub.


Install the API-Integration StackPack by using the following sequence of steps:

  1. Download the API-Integration Agent from Bintray or run this command on the machine where you wish to install the Agent:

    wget 'https://dl.bintray.com/stackstate-agent/stackstate-agent-deb-repo/pool/s/stackstate-agent/stackstate-agent_1.2.18-1_amd64.deb'
  2. Use dpkg to install the downloaded package:

    dpkg -i stackstate-agent_1.2.18-1_amd64.deb
  3. Set the following keys in the stackstate.conf.example file:

     api_key: {{config.apiKey}}
     dd_url: {{config.baseUrl}}/stsAgent/
  4. After this the example configuration can be used as configuration.

     cp /etc/sts-agent/stackstate.conf.example /etc/sts-agent/stackstate.conf
