Email integration

The Sensu Email Handler plugin is a Sensu handler that sends email alerts based on your event data. With this handler, Sensu can send email messages to the email addresses you specify based on event data generated by your Sensu checks.

PRO TIP: Use the Sensu Catalog to enable this integration directly from your browser. Follow the Catalog prompts to configure the Sensu resources you need and start processing your observability data with a few clicks.


The Sensu Email Handler plugin supports the login authentication mechanisms required for use with Google Mail, Office 365, and other standards-based email providers and transports.
