Robusta can report issues and events in your Kubernetes cluster to Zulip.

To configure the Zulip sink you will need a bot email, an api token and your api/zulip url

Creating a bot accountΒΆ

  1. Open Zulip

  2. Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner

  3. Select Personal or Organization settings

  4. On the left, click Bots

  5. Click Add a new bot

6. Fill out the fields, and click Add 4. Copy email and token


  • api_url : The url of your Zulip instance

  • bot_email : The email of the bot account

  • bot_api_key : The api key of your bot account

  • stream_name : Name of the channel to send the message to

  • topic_name : Name of the topic of the stream to send messages to

  • topic_override : Dynamic topic override, same as the channel_override in the slack sink

  • log_preview_char_limit : [Optional - default: 500] The amount of log characters to append to the alert message (zulip doesnt have a builtin text file preview). If set to 0 a text file will be sent

Configuring the Zulip sinkΒΆ

Add this to your generated_values.yaml

- zulip_sink:
    name: my_zulip_sink
    api_url: https://my-zulip-instance.com
    bot_email: bot12345@my-zulip-instance.com
    bot_api_key: very_secret_key
    stream_name: Monitoring
    topic_name: Robusta

Save the file and run

helm upgrade robusta robusta/robusta -f generated_values.yaml

You should now get alerts in Zulip!
