Build Status

Sachet (or सचेत) is Hindi for conscious. Sachet is an SMS alerting tool for the Prometheus Alertmanager.

The problem

There are many SMS providers and Alertmanager supporting all of them would make the code noisy. To get around this issue a new service needed to be created dedicated only for SMS.

The solution

An HTTP API that accepts Alertmanager webhook calls and allows an end-user to configure it for the SMS provider of their dreams.


First get it

$ go get

And then running Sachet is as easy as executing

on the command line.
$ sachet

Use the

flag to get help information.
$ sachet -h
Usage of sachet:
  -config string
        The configuration file (default "config.yaml")
  -listen-address string
        The address to listen on for HTTP requests. (default ":9876")


Sachet expects a JSON object from Alertmanager. The format of this JSON is described in the Alertmanager documentation, or, alternatively, in the Alertmanager GoDoc.

To quickly test Sachet is working you can also run:

$ curl -H "Content-type: application/json" -X POST \
  -d '{"receiver": "team-sms", "status": "firing", "alerts": [{"status": "firing", "labels": {"alertname": "test-123"} }], "commonLabels": {"key": "value"}}' \

Alertmanager configuration

To enable Sachet you need to configure a webhook in Alertmanager. You can do that by adding a webhook receiver to your Alertmanager configuration.

- name: 'team-sms'
  - url: 'http://localhost:9876/alert'

Message templating

Sachet supports Alertmanager-like templates for message content. You can do that by simply copying Alertmanager templates to Sachet. Some templates examples can be found in the Alertmanager documentation as well as available variables.

sachet.yml: ```yaml templates: - /etc/sachet/notifications.tmpl

receivers: - name: 'team-telegram' provider: telegram text: '{{ template "telegrammessage" . }}'

{{ define "telegramtitle" }}[{{ .Status | toUpper }}{{ if eq .Status "firing" }}:{{ .Alerts.Firing | len }}{{ end }}] {{ .CommonLabels.alertname }} @ {{ .CommonLabels.identifier }} {{ end }}

{{ define "telegram_message" }} {{ if gt (len .Alerts.Firing) 0 }} Alerts Firing: {{ range .Alerts.Firing }}• {{ .Labels.instance }}: {{ .Annotations.description }} {{ end }}{{ end }} {{ if gt (len .Alerts.Resolved) 0 }} Alerts Resolved: {{ range .Alerts.Resolved }}• {{ .Labels.instance }}: {{ .Annotations.description }} {{ end }}{{ end }}{{ end }}

{{ define "telegramtext" }}{{ template "telegramtitle" .}} {{ template "telegram_message" . }}{{ end }} ```
