HTTP-JSON delivery methods
HTTP-JSON type delivery methods send alerts to any server configured to receive JSON objects. Alerts are encapsulated as a JSON object and sent using the POST request method over HTTP or HTTPS. If the destination server uses Digest access authentication, you can identify the user and password required for authentication.
To create an HTTP-JSON type delivery method:
- Go to Administration → Alert Configuration → Delivery Methods.
- Select HTTP - JSON in the left-hand panel, then click the New button. The New Delivery Method window appears.
Enter the required information:
Name A unique name that identifies this specific delivery method. Timezone This is the time zone that will be used to calculate when alerts can be sent. This will be applied to the schedule defined in any sending policy that uses this delivery method. URL The URL of the server to which the alerts should be sent. Language The language in which to send the alert content. Authenticated Select the Authenticated checkbox if you want to use digest access authentication with the destination server. When selected, the User and Password fields are activated so that you can enter the keys for authentication.
- Click the Save button. An HTTP test message with a code is sent to the URL specified in the delivery method. This activation code must be validated on the server-side before the delivery method can be used.
