How to poll other API regularly

There seems to be no Meraki integration in OpsGenie?

I'd like to receive notifications when a Meraki AP or Switch goes offline. The email notification is pretty ugly, batching multiple devices into a single email, which makes it impossible to track up/down for individual devices?

Meraki does offer an API call which looks much easier to parse:<XXXX>/deviceStatuses

This returns (properly authenticated, of course) a nice JSON status of all my devices, including a "status" key.

Is it possible to (a) regularly call this authenticated API directly from OpsGenie and (b) parse the JSON into just the parts I want to see and alert on? 

Or am I barking up the wrong tree and not understanding OpsGenie at all?

Hi @Ingo Dean !


Opsgenie does not currently have a pre-built integration with Meraki, however we do have a feature request for this.


Alerts are created in Opsgenie by other tools sending alerts to Opsgenie. So there isn't a way to set-up Opsgenie to poll Merkai for alerts via their API. You could set-up some sort custom solution with a script to poll Meraki for alerts via API, and then create the alerts in Opsgenie via our Alert API.

For example you could set-up a cron job that runs every X minutes that executes a script to poll Meraki for alerts via their API, and then if there are alerts, create them in Opsgenie via API.

But there isn't a way for Opsgenie to poll/pull alerts from other tools, alerts need to be sent to Opsgenie.


Hope this helps! Let us know if you have more questions.
