How to attach alert action output to Opsgenie

Hello, I am working on creating custom actions and wondering:

A. Is it possible to attach the output from a triggered custom action to the alert once the action runs.  It seems like this is possible in the documentation as I see referenced in the docs, but I can't find an example.  I think that I will need to pass the alertId to the action so the output can be attached to the proper alert, not sure how to pass that and hoping to shortcut the research.

B. If A above is possible, does anyone have an example they are willing to share.


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Richard Bocchinfuso !


The alertId will be sent in the payload for whatever custom action you are performing. If you capture the output of whatever command you are looking to execute (ping or traceroute for example) you can use the addNote endpoint on the Alert API to attach the text to the alert that triggered it.


That's just an example of when you'd want the output attached to the alert, but you could also use it to take some other action on the alert that's supported through the API (snooze, acknowledge, close, create an incident, etc.). 


Hope this helps!
