As everyone is taking proactive measures to stay healthy, organizations are increasingly having their employees work from home. At Splunk, we are focused on bringing data to every question, decision and action — and remote work for us equals Zoom for online meetings and workspaces.
As our customers use Splunk for real-time data processing and analytics, they use our Splunk Mobile App (Android, iOS) when they need to take their dashboards on the go. Our engineering teams leverage this same capability as well when collaborating remotely.
Actionable Alerts – Zoom War Room
With Splunk Mobile, you can receive alerts wherever you are and take action. These actions can be anything — and we mean anything — as they are simply URL webhooks that you define to attach to your alerts.
Here’s an example of how we use alerts with Zoom.
The Splunk Mobile Engineering team uses Zoom to create “War Rooms” when we need to get everyone in the same place to troubleshoot critical issues quickly. Zoom makes it easy for us to automatically create these meeting rooms through its API. Whenever there is a Splunk generated alert, we attach a Zoom link and send it to all relevant stakeholders. Once received, all stakeholders can join the room immediately at the tap of a button. What’s more, they’ll all be looking at the same dashboard that triggered the alert in the first place.
Sharing Splunk Dashboards with Zoom
Splunk Mobile has sharing features built-in to the app. Examples include sharing your data as captured images or as a live link to an interactive dashboard. Our favorite thing to do is to either copy that link to a Zoom chat or Slack thread where people can kick off their own investigations. – Read more
