Receiving Alerts via Telegram

We're pleased to officially present Telegram Todd, our bot that delivers your miner health notifications directly to a shared Telegram channel or private DM!

Getting Started

To receive alerts via Telegram, you'll first need to re-configure your Foreman triggers.  By default, all notifications are sent to your email address.

Default notification destination.

Notifications can be sent to any combination of the following:

  • Email
  • Discord
  • Telegram
Notification destination changed to Telegram.

You'll also need to fetch your Foreman API credentials.  Those can be found here:

API information found under 'My Account' in Foreman.

Receiving Alerts via Direct Message

Once your triggers are configured to send alerts to Telegram, message Todd, our bot, and introduce yourself (https://t.me/ForemanToddBot).

The start of a conversation with Todd.

After clicking on the Start button, Todd will ask you for your client ID and API key. You should have those handy from the Getting Started steps above:

If things were provided correctly, you should get a green check:

Validation of the client ID and API key.

From here on out, depending on the triggers created in Foreman, Todd will let you know when things happen.  To stop the alerts, send /forget.

Receiving Alerts in a Channel

To share alerts with your team, it's often useful to invite our bot to a shared channel.  To do that, you'll have to invite him.  When prompted, since he's a Bot, you'll also need to make him an admin:

Once he's invited, type /start. Todd will ask you for your client ID and API key. You should have those handy from the Getting Started steps above:

Provide credentials to Todd.

If things were provided correctly, you should get a green check.  From here on out, depending on the triggers created in Foreman, Todd will let you know when things happen.

To stop the alerts, remove Todd from the channel.
