Configure Alerts with Postmark

There are several ways to receive and trigger alerts within EdgeIQ. EdgeIQ has the ability to set and change device health status as well as trigger notifications through SMTP, Postmark, and SMS (Twilio). In this tutorial, we will configure a Postmark integration to send email notifications according to changes in device status.

The first step is to create the Postmark Integration. Navigate to Orchestration > Integrations and click the + Create New Integration button.


In the pop up window, enter a Name for the integration and choose Email - Postmark for the Integration Type. Then, paste the API Token from your Postmark account. You can find the token at the Postmark website by navigating to Account > API Tokens.


Click the Create Integration button and then navigate to Orchestration > Policies. Click the + Create Policy button. In the New Policy tab, enter a Policy Description at the top.

In the Condition section, toggle On Heartbeat Status Change to on, then choose which Devices or Device Types to which you want this policy to apply.


Click the + Action button and choose Send E-Mail from the drop-down. In the form that appears below, enter the E-mail Message, E-mail Subject, Sender E-Mail Address, and Recipient E-mail Address(es). Select either HTML or Text for the E-mail Body Type. For Integration, choose the Postmark integration that you just created. Then, click the Create Policy button.


Now, when your device changes heartbeat status, you will receive an email.
