Alert webhook CREATE Operation and HTTP Configuration

This is Step 2 in the procedure for creating a new outbound alert webhook.

In this topic, you specify the external system URL (endpoint) and the HTTP action to perform when an incident or alert passes the filters for the very first time, as defined in Step 1 - Create an outbound alert webhook.

The authorization and HTTP headers are common to both the CREATE and UPDATE operations.

Request method and URL for create operation

Select the request method (POST, PATCH, DELETE, PUT) to use to send data to the target system when an incident or alert is created which passes the filter defined in the first section.

URL

The URL of the endpoint on your target system that receives information from Moogsoft Cloud.

Authorization

Select the way to authenticate with your target system.

You can choose from:

  • No auth

  • Basic Auth

  • Bearer Token

Note

Save your authorization credentials in the secure, encrypted Credential Store instead of adding them to the headers.

Saving credentials in the Credential Store also allows you to reuse them with other webhooks.

Headers

By default, headers include Content-Type: application/json. If there is other information that you would like to include in headers, you can define it here by clicking Add New Row. You can include as many additional rows as you need.

Headers consist of key : value pairs, where the key is the name of the header and the value is the contents.
