Status 400 on API Alert

Deleted user Feb 20, 2020

This may be a simple answer but every time I try to make a API alert call i get the following error(below). Im pretty sure the JSON syntax is correct as I run it on and see no errors



POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: GenieKey xxxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxxx" -d { "message": "A urgent event has occurred. Please acknowledge that this notice has been recognized", "alias": "urgent", "priority": "P2" }


Error message

{"message":"Invalid JSON","took":0.002,"requestId":"xxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxx-xx-xxxxxxxxx"}

Hi @[deleted] - it sounds like the body isn't being passed as json. Are you making the request via curl? If so - can you try putting single quotes around the body? i.e.

'{ "message": "A urgent event has occurred. Please acknowledge that this notice has been recognized", "alias": "urgent", "priority": "P2" }'


If that doesn't work please reach out to our support team either through the in-app chat (blue bubble in bottom right of screen when logged into Opsgenie), or submitting a ticket via
