API Help - Get On-Calls

I'm very new to using API's. I'm trying to integrate our ticketing system : SCSM with Opsgenie.  I'm trying to use the "Who's On Call API"

The curl example shows:

curl -X GET ''
--header 'Authorization: GenieKey eb24alp-faa2-4ba2-a551q-1alpf565c889'

I'm using powershell:

Invoke-webrequest -Method Get -Uri '' -Header @{"Authorization"="GenieKey XXXXXXXX-XXXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX"}

I'm getting 

The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.


Does anyone have any examples of using API's this way?

For any other folks new to API's, this is what I learned:

The data returned is JSON. If you want to parse data out of the contents returned, this is how I did it:

$data = Invoke-Restmethod -Uri -Method Get -Headers @{'Authorization'='GenieKey xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx'}

# to get the username for example:



I hope this is helpful to anyone that was new to powershell / API's and Opsgenie API integration.

Hi @Scott Wright.

Could you help me with my request? I'm getting the same error when I'm trying to add note to alert.
