A bridge between ntfy and Alertmanager.


Simply use go build or the docker image with docker-compose file. ntfy-alertmanager:latest is built from the latest tagged release while ntfy-alertmanager:dev is built from the master branch.


You can specify the configuration file location with the --config flag. By default the configuration file will be read from /etc/ntfy-alertmanager/config. The format of this file is scfg.

ntfy-alertmanager has support for setting ntfy priority, tags, icon, action buttons (which can be used to create an Alertmanager silence) and email notifications. Define a decreasing order of labels in the config file and map those labels to tags, priority, an icon or an email address.

  • For priority and icon the first found value will be chosen. An icon for "resolved" alerts will take precedence.
  • Tags are added together.


# Public facing base URL of the service (e.g. https://ntfy-alertmanager.xenrox.net)
# This setting is required for the "Silence" feature.
base-url https://ntfy-alertmanager.xenrox.net
# http listen address
http-address :8080
# Log level (either debug, info, warning, error)

# When multiple alerts are grouped together by Alertmanager, they can either be sent
# each on their own (single mode) or be kept together (multi mode) (either single or multi; default is single)
alert-mode single
# Optionally protect with HTTP basic authentication

        # Forward messages which severity "critical" to the specified email address.

alertmanager {
    # If set, the ntfy message will contain a "Silence" button, which can be used
    # to create a silence via the Alertmanager API. Because of limitations in ntfy,
    # the request will be proxied through ntfy-alertmanager. Therefore ntfy-alertmanager
    # needs to be exposed to external network requests and base-url has to be set.
    # When alert-mode is set to "single" all alert labels will be used to create the silence.
    # When it is "multi" common labels between all the alerts will be used. WARNING: This
    # could silence unwanted alerts.
