EBS: How to Set Up an Email Ingestion Integration in Everbridge Suite



How to set up an email ingestion integration in Everbridge Suite.


Email Ingestion functionality provides administrators with the capability to set up an integration between Everbridge Suite and a third-party alerting application such as event monitoring tools, digital signage software, CAD systems, etc.). Everbridge Suite ingests an email from a third-party application, parses the email, and launches an incident.

Email Ingestion is a premium Everbridge feature, and not enabled for all Everbridge organizations by default. Please contact an Everbridge Account Manager to enable this feature.

Note: The incoming emails Everbridge will ingest must be formatted in Plain Text. If emails are received as HTML, all HTML tags will be stripped, and a plain text body will be generated.  With this process, all smart characters will be converted into their plain counterparts.
