Alert destinations

Preview

This feature is in Public Preview. Contact your Databricks representative to request access.

Whenever an alert triggers, it sends a blob of related data (called the alert template) to its designated alert destinations. Destinations use this blob of data to send emails, Slack messages, or custom webhooks.

You must be a Databricks admin to manage alert destinations. Destinations are available to all users.

The default destination for any alert is the email address of the user who created it. If you create an alert and want to be notified by email, you don’t need to set up a new alert destination. Instead, toggle the switch beside your email address on the alert setup screen.
