Webhook option

Webhook option

I think it would be good if Solarwinds brings on WebHook option... This can help in integrating it to other products very easily...

This is already possible today in Orion using the HTTP/S Get/Post alert action.

We had need for this recently.  Real quick and easy Powershell script that worked for us.  Use Execute and External Program for the Alert action, of course.  Hope this helps someone.

Powershell.exe -File C:\SlackAlert.ps1 -body "${N=Alerting;M=AlertName} was triggered, blah, blah"

Here's the script.  Adjust as necessary, save as .ps1 and call from the Alert.


$RestProps = @{
'Uri' = '';
'Method' = 'Post';
'ContentType' = 'application/json';

Invoke-RestMethod $RestProps -Body (ConvertTo-Json -InputObject @{text='$body'})

@aLTeReGo What about incoming Webhooks? What you are describing is a mechanism to execute a POST/GET request as an action to an alert. Webhooks could be a useful method for SolarWinds to receive events/data from other platforms. 

Not really sure what  @pratikmehta003 was trying to achieve, a few additional details would be appreciated.

Webhooks can be used to trigger actions/verbs in Orion, such as acknowledging an alert or even add notes to an alert, but there is no way to input data (metrics or log events) into Orion like you can for AppOptics or Loggly
