Get All Alerts

Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project ID. For existing groups, your group/project ID remains the same. The resource and corresponding endpoints use the term groups.

GET /groups/{GROUP-ID}/alerts
Parameter
Required/Optional
Description
{GROUP-ID}
Required
Project identifier.

This endpoint may use any of the HTTP request query parameters available to all Atlas API resources. These are all optional.

Name
Type
Necessity
Description
Default
pageNum
integer
Optional
Page number, starting with one, that Atlas returns of the total number of objects.
1
itemsPerPage
integer
Optional
Number of items that Atlas returns per page, up to a maximum of 500.
100
includeCount
boolean
Optional
Flag that indicates whether Atlas returns the totalCount parameter in the response body.
true
pretty
boolean
Optional
Flag that indicates whether Atlas returns the JSON response in the prettyprint format.
false
envelope
boolean
Optional

Flag that indicates whether Atlas wraps the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

Endpoints that return a list of results use the results object as an envelope. Atlas adds the status parameter to the response body.

false
status
string
Optional

Status of alerts to be returned. Omit to return all alerts.

Atlas accepts:

TRACKING

Atlas returns alerts with TRACKING status. If an alert's configuration specifies a notification delay, Atlas assigns the alert the TRACKING status until the delay period ends. After the delay, Atlas sets the status to OPEN, if the condition persists.

If an alert's configuration has multiple notifications, each with its own notification delay, Atlas uses the smallest delay value to determine when to move the alert from TRACKING to OPEN.

OPEN
Atlas returns all open alerts.
CLOSED
Atlas returns all closed alerts.
Returns all alerts

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

The response includes the totalCount of the alerts and a results array with the list of alert details. Each alert information includes:

Note

Alert configurations vary. An alert configuration may only include a subset of these elements.

Name

Description
id
