I am trying to create an alert via REST API. I am getting 202 response during alert creation and receiving response payload as mentioned in the API document. But, I don't see alert getting created in Opsgenie. I am stuck at this step and couldn't proceed further. Did any one face this problem?
The 202 should have been returned with a Request ID. You can use the Request Status API endpoint with that ID to get the information on how the request was processed.
A 202 typically means "The request is valid and will be processed asynchronously.
Unlike 200, it does not guarantee that the request will be handled successfully. You can check the Logs for the result" - https://docs.opsgenie.com/docs/response#response-codes
The Logs tab can be found under the Settings tab. You could then search for the alert's message, alias, request ID, etc. to check if the request is received by Opsgenie:
There is a chance the alert is getting deduplicated as well - meaning the request is increasing the count of an already existing open Opsgenie alert (if the alias is matching): https://docs.opsgenie.com/docs/alert-deduplication
You could also use the alert dash to check if this alert does exist / is being deduplicate by creating a query for the message, alias, etc. https://docs.opsgenie.com/docs/alerts-search-query-help
Try these steps and let us know if you are able to find the alert, or run into any other questions or issues.
