Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {PROJECT-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

Base URL: https://{OPSMANAGER-HOST}:{PORT}/api/public/v1.0

GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/alertConfigs/{ALERT-CONFIG-ID}/alerts

All request path parameters are required.

Parameter

pretty
boolean
Optional
Flag that indicates whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format.
false
envelope
boolean
Optional

Flag that indicates whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope : true in the query.

For endpoints that return a list of results, the results object is an envelope. Ops Manager adds the status field to the response body.

false
backupJobsEnabledOnly
boolean
Optional
Flag indicating whether to exclude daemons not enabled for backing up databases from the response. Set this to false to include daemon configurations with the backupJobsEnabled flag set to false.
true

This endpoint doesn't use HTTP request body parameters.

The response JSON document includes an array of result objects, an array of link objects and a count of the total number of result objects retrieved.

Name
Type
Description
results
array
Array includes one object for each item detailed in the results Embedded Document section.
links
array
Array includes one or more links to sub-resources and/or related resources. The relations between URLs are explained in the Web Linking Specification.
totalCount
number
Integer count of the total number of items in the result set. It may be greater than the number of objects in the results array if the entire result set is paginated.

Each result is one alert configuration.
