I'm not familiar with Squadcast but my first step is usually searching exchange.nagios.com or throwing in some relevant search terms into a search engine i.e. "squadcast nagios". If I can't find anything that seems to fit the need then the next step is to identify how Squadcast can ingest data from an external source like Nagios - email, snmp trap, api, etc... If it can accept emails then you're in luck because that is the main method Core uses to send notifications. If mail isn't an option then you're likely looking at writing a custom event handler. https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... dlers.html. An event handler is just a script that Nagios can execute when it needs to send information to something like Squadcast.
