Navigate to the root of this project - /blinkenjs - and select it
After installation you should see a little grey icon in your toolbar. When you don’t want to see it, you can right-click it and hide it.
You will need to point the extension at the Icinga alert pages in order to use it. To do this, open up your extensions, and find the “GOV.UK Blinken” extension. Click “Options”. On this page, you should type the Icinga URLs for each environment and click “Save”. Once they have been successfully configured, you should see the icon change colour in the corner.
The icon uses the following colour scheme:
Green means no warnings
Purple means some unknown alerts, but no warnings or critical alerts
Amber means some warnings, but no critical alerts
Red means some critical alerts
The big block across the top of the icon represents Production. The medium-sized one at the bottom-left represents
Staging, and the small block in the bottom-right represents Integration. AWS Staging and Production environments are
not yet represented in the icon but will be once the majority of applications have been migrated.
Clicking on the icon will open up the BlinkenJS page with more information. Each environment can be clicked to be taken
to the corresponding Icinga page.
The extension can also display system-wide notifications when the status of an environment changes. Clicking the notification will open the corresponding Icinga page.
These notifications can be enabled/disabled on the extension settings page. Notifications can be toggled for each environment, and for each status.
