Liongard Roar

Roar Users Guide & Documentation

Welcome! You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help MSPs start working with Liongard's Roar as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's go #MakeITRoar!

Get Started    


To get started, with Liongard and BrightGauge's Integration, you'll need to complete the following steps in Roar and BrightGauge.

Step 1: Turn on Your Metrics in Roar

To make Metrics accessible via our API, you'll need to turn them on in Roar.


Toggling Metrics On

Roar Metrics is a Dataset in BrightGauge.

Toggling Metrics "On" in Roar will make them visible in Roar AND in BrightGauge.

We suggest only toggling on Metrics you wish to see in BrightGauge. As a best practice, start with Office 365 and Active Directory Metrics.


Data Time Period

BrightGauge retrieves the past 60 days of Metrics from Roar on a rolling basis.


Access Key/Secret

The BrightGauge integration will require you to have an Roar Access Key & Secret upon setup. If you've documented your Key & Secret for previous Agent installs, then you may use the same credentials for the BrightGauge integration.

Otherwise, you may create a Access Key & Secret by navigating to Your Name > Account Settings > Access Tokens > Generate a New Token.

  1. Go to Admin > Metrics.
  2. Select the Metrics you'd like to access in BrightGauge and turn on the 'Display' toggle.

Metric Names

The BrightGauge integration is based on Metric Names and will be displayed in BrightGauge as "metric_name."

If you change the name of a Metric used in a Gauge, this will break the Gauge. You will need to edit the Gauge and select the updated Metric.

Step 2: Log in to BrightGauge to set up the Liongard Integration

Use the BrightGauge docs here to set up the integration. You'll find Liongard in BrightGauge's Datasource library.

Step 3: Check out Roar's Default Dashboards

We created two BrightGauge default dashboards for you to get started: one for Office 365 and one for Active Directory.

Step 4: Let us know your feedback!

Jump into our Slack channel, the Roar User's Network, to let us know how you're using this integration. We're looking for ideas on the what other default gauges you'd like us to build!
