It is possible to close the alert using the user api key?


I've made a successful API call using the integration key to create alert. It is possible to close the alert using the user api key?

With this command
curl -X POST

-H "Authorization: GenieKey xxxxxxUserApiKeyxxxxxxxx"

-H "Content-Type: application/json"

-d '{ "user":"Monitoring Script", "source":"AWS Lambda", "note":"Action executed via Alert API" }'

Then returns the error:


"message""To perform this action, use an API key from an API integration."

Create alert by this command

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: GenieKey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" -d '{

    "message""Test alert",
    "alias""Life is too short for no alias",
    "description""Every alert needs a description",
    "responders": [
    "entity""An example entity",
