The REST API in Enterprise Alert 9 has now been extended with a 2-way functionality. This allows to call webhooks or REST endpoints from third party systems on alarm status changes (acknowledge, close). Thus, in Enterprise Alert 9, it becomes child’s play to establish a 2-way integration with almost any REST enabled third party system.
To setup a new 2-way Rest integration inside of Enterprise Alert 9 use the following steps”
Log into the Enterprise Alert 9 web portal, and click on the System menu option
Select the Event Sources button
Select the New Source button at the bottom of the page.
Select the Rest Connector tile and then click on the Choose button.
Give the connector a name, to enable the ability to use 2-way rest the Enable outbound REST (2-way) box needs to be checked. Checking this box shows a new URL box, this URL needs to be the URL to connect to the 3rd party’s Rest API.
Once this new REST connector is saved a new file path will show on the right for the node.js file that is associated with this 2-way connector. This node.js file can be edited for any formatting required, or wanted for the 3rd party system.
