Airbrake Integration


You need a Zapier account first. If you don't have an account, click here to create a Zapier account.


In this article, we will try integrating both ClickSend and Airbrake. So what we want to achieve here is for a user to be notified by sms when an error is triggered in Airbrake. This will allow rapid response when an issue is detected.

So, let's get started.


Step 1:

Login to your Zapier account. And then click Make a Zap! button.

Step 2:

Let's search and select Airbrake as our trigger app. Next, check New Error as our trigger action. Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 3:

Let's link your Airbrake account.

Select Choose Account.

Click Connect an Account button.

Enter your Airbrake Subdomain and Auth Token.

Then click Yes, Continue button.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 4:

Let finish up our trigger app setup.

Go back to your Zapier setup page.

Then click Fetch & Continue button.

Lastly the Continue button.

Step 5:

Ok, let's set up our Action app. Let's search and choose ClickSend. 

Next select Create Contact as our action. 

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 6:

Next, let's add your ClickSend account. Click Connect an Account button.

There should be a popup saying to add or allow your Zapier and ClickSend account to be linked together.

Type in your ClickSend username and API key.

Click the Test button to check if it was successful.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 7:

Let's set up our SMS message.

In the To input box enter the number of the person to be notified.

In the Message input box create a custom message to send the user that can include error details such as:

Error: {{35216283__id}}, Project {{35216283__project_id}}
Error Message: {{35216283__error_message}}

Where {{35216283__id}} is selected using the selector on the right hand side of the input box.

You can also add a custom From field such as "Airbrake Error" in order to easily identify the incoming sms.

Then click Continue button.

Step 8:

Let's finish up everything.

Click Create & Continue button.

Then the Finish button.

Lastly, name your Zap, and turn it ON
