Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Notifications is a highly available, low-latency publish/subscribe (pub/sub) service that sends alerts and messages to Oracle Functions, email, SMS, and message delivery partners, including Slack, PagerDuty, and ServiceNow. The service integrates with Oracle Identity and Access Management for secure access, and delivers each message, even during traffic bursts.
Send Notifications when metrics are breached or a resource becomes unresponsive.
Notify based on a variety of Events, such as a new file in object storage or a newly provisioned compute instance.
Integration with Identity and Access Management provides granular access controls to only specific users in the organization, helping safeguard personal information and prevent malicious activity.
Prevent spam emails. Messages to registered email addresses, phone numbers, and endpoints require an opt-in from those subscribers.
Administrators can control subscriptions through the console, SDK, and Notifications API.
Oracle provides automatic updates for messaging protocols and endpoints so that customers don’t need delve into the details of protocol semantics.
Use push-based messaging architecture to easily broadcast messages to thousands of subscribers across various protocols.
Notifications provides monthly free allocations via Oracle Cloud Free Tier. Beyond the Free Tier, customers pay only for usage based on number of messages delivered.
Notifications will attempt to deliver all messages at least once, with continual retries for two hours.
Notifications can handle bursts in traffic and failures in infrastructure.
Notifications can deliver any type of payload (XML, JSON, and binary) to various microservices.
Send messages on behalf of services to specific subscribers. Examples include password resets, calendar reminders, and shopping cart nudges.
Send notifications when a specific event has taken place, such as when a new file appears in object storage or someone has created a new compute instance.
Quickly detect and respond to anomalies. Notifications can show when a metric exceeds a specific threshold, or an application or infrastructure resource might be down.
