Can't authenticate through AlertManager / Prometheus

Hello Im trying to set up the integration with OpsGenie through AlertManager / Prometheus. I followed several examples on the web for configuration, but errors logs say "Authentication Failed" Is there anything else I need to add to Alertmanager Config?

unexpected status code 401: {\"message\":\"Could not authenticate\",

Here is a sample of my alertmanager config file


opsgenie_api_key: XXX
opsgenie_api_url: ''
group_by: ['alertname', 'cluster', 'service']
group_wait: 30s
group_interval: 5m
repeat_interval: 3h
receiver: opsgenie
- match:
receiver: opsgenie
- name: 'opsgenie'
- send_resolved: true
http_config: {}
api_key: XXX
- name: 'My Team Support'
type: 'team'

Hi @Tim Davis ,

I believe we spoke yesterday around the same issue, and realized the 401 was due to the wrong API key being used in Alert Manager conf. file.
