To get started with StarTree ThirdEye (opens in a new tab), do the following:

  2. Make your data accessible by ThirdEye
  3. Add a notification system
  4. Create alerts


  1. Apache Pinot must be installed and running. To install Pinot, do one of the following:
  2. StarTree ThirdEye must be installed and running. To install ThirdEye, do one of the following:
    • Install the open source version of ThirdEye. For more information, see infrastructure requirements.
    • Use StarTree Cloud, which includes an available instance of ThirdEye, ready to connect to data you've uploaded into your StarTree Cloud instance of Pinot.
  3. Upload your data into Apache Pinot

    Data to be used must have the right data architecture in order to be useful. See ThirdEye data requirements for more information.

  4. Work through the ThirdEye use case planning template to ensure you understand what intend to accomplish in the following checklist.

Make your data accessible by ThirdEye

To make your data accessible by ThirdEye, you must connect ThirdEye to a datasource.

If you're using StarTree Cloud, see an example of how to load a sample dataset section.

If you are using StarTree Cloud, when you open ThirdEye, ThirdEye automatically connects to Pinot and guides you through the connection process.

Add a notification system

Create one or more groups for alerts to be sent to, each with one or more routes for sending the notifications, such as email, Slack, or PagerDuty. These groups are called Subscription Groups in ThirdEye.

Notifications are sent to subscription groups. The entire set of subscription groups and routes is referred to as a notification system.

Create your notification system first so that you have a place to send alert notifications when you create the alerts.

Create alerts

Read Create your first alert for a basic example you can use to guide you through the process.

The Create alerts section of the docs contains some practical recipes and patterns you can use.

To learn more about how to configure alerts, see Alert configuration and execution.
