Receive monitoring notifications in Telegram • September 27, 2020
Tags: openITCOCKPIT | Development

I'm really annoyed ... by over 60 emails per day from my monitoring system!

If something of my infrastructure gets broken I really want to get notified.

But when a service flutters around, e.g. sometimes more and sometimes less CPU, it is good to know, but also very confusing when the whole e-mail inbox is full.

My solution is to separate very important and less relevant notifications by delivering them to different applications.

What the module should be able to do
  • Deliver the same notifications to multiple chats

  • Deliver specific notifications to specific chats (maybe using tag filters?)

  • Interactive actions possible (at least acknowledgements, maybe setting filters)

  • Deactivate / activate chats temporarily - to have a quiet vacation :)

  • Authorize new chats

Let's try the developing

1. Install a development environment using my openITCOCKPIT in LXC solution

2. Clone the available example module from

3. Require PHP Telegram Bot Api in our composer.json to easily connect to Telegram

Start coding on the Telegram module

That came out
