Default API Integration

API Integrations are used to access Opsgenie services, allowing you to integrate alerts, configure users, schedules, and teams on your Opsgenie account from external applications.

A Default API integration is provided in your account. This integration can be used for configuring users as well as alerts, however, we recommend adding a separate API Integration for each of your monitoring systems.
