List Alert Request

📘

Alert list & count api is async, changes to alerts are available to list requests at most within 2 seconds.
Async behaviour does not create pagination problems. Alert create, ack, close, get actions are real time.

List alerts request is used to list alerts in OpsGenie. It takes the following parameters:

Mandatory Parameters

Parameter
apiKeyAPI key is used for authenticating API requests

Optional Parameters

Parameter
createdAfterUnix timestamp value which is converted to nano second. Request will return all alerts which are created after specified time.
createdBeforeUnix timestamp value which is converted to nano second. Request will return all alerts which are created after specified time.
updatedAfterUnix timestamp value which is converted to nano second. Request will return all alerts which are created after specified time.
updatedBeforeUnix timestamp value which is converted to nano second. Request will return all alerts which are created after specified time.
limitPage size. Default is 20. Max value for this parameter is 100.
statusUsed to query alerts with specified status. May take one of open, acked, unacked, seen, notseen, closed.
sortBycreatedAt, updatedAt, default is createdAt
orderasc/desc, default: desc
tagsA comma separated list of labels attached to the alert such as "tag1, tag2"
tagsOperatortags are combined with tagsOperator like "tag1 and tag2" when filtered. Accepted values: and/or, default: and.
teamsA comma separated list of teams that an alert belongs to such as "ops_team, business_team". One or more teams' alerts can be filtered via this parameter. If multiple teams are specified, alerts that belong to all given teams are filtered. The list can consist of team ids and team names.

Sample requests to retrieve list of alerts

retrieve the last 20 alerts (20 is the default for limit, 100 is the max for limit)

curl -XGET 'https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/alert?apiKey=eb243592-faa2-4ba2-a551q-1afdf565c889'

retrieve the last 10 open alerts

curl -XGET 'https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/alert?apiKey=eb243592-faa2-4ba2-a551q-1afdf565c889&status=open&limit=10'

retrieve alerts created after this time

curl -XGET 'https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/alert?apiKey=eb243592-faa2-4ba2-a551q-1afdf565c889&createdAfter=1351634560000000&limit=20'

retrive alerts with paging
This request retrieves oldest 5 alert by ascending order. By using the createdAt value of the 5th alert, we will make the second request.

curl -XGET 'https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/alert?apiKey=39d50168-24b3-4355-b285-b91060823dee&order=asc&limit=5'

Let's say "createdAt" value of the 5th alert we retrieved above is "1405953557284001300". To get 6th to 10th alerts, we should add this value to our request to retrieve 5 alerts created after that alert.

curl -XGET 'https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/alert?apiKey=39d50168-24b3-4355-b285-b91060823dee&order=asc&limit=5&createdAfter=1405953557284001300'

To continue polling, you can use the second request by changing createdAfter value according to the alerts you retrieved.

curl -XGET 'https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/alert?apiKey=eb243592-faa2-4ba2-a551q-1afdf565c889&status=unacked&tags=critical'
