You can successfully call this endpoint with any of the following assigned roles:

Request

Base URL: https://{OPSMANAGER-HOST}:{PORT}/api/public/v1.0

GET /globalAlertConfigs

Request Path Parameters

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

Request Query Parameters

Name Type Description Default
pageNum number One-based integer that returns a subsection of results. 1
itemsPerPage number Number of items to return per page, up to a maximum of 500. 100
pretty boolean Flag that indicates whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format. false
envelope boolean

Flag that indicates whether or not to wrap 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.

For endpoints that return a list of results, the results object is an envelope. Ops Manager adds the status field to the response body.

false

Request Body Parameters

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

Response

Response Document

The response JSON document includes an array of result objects, an array of link objects and a count of the total number of result objects retrieved.

Name Type Description
results array Array includes one object for each item detailed in the results Embedded Document section.
links array Array includes one or more links to sub-resources and/or related resources. The relations between URLs are explained in the Web Linking Specification.
totalCount number Integer count of the total number of items in the result set. It may be greater than the number of objects in the results array if the entire result set is paginated.

results Embedded Document

Each result is one alert configuration.

Name Type Description
created string Timestamp in ISO 8601 date and time format in UTC when the alert configuration was created.
enabled boolean Toggle that specifies whether the alert configuration is enabled.
eventTypeName string

Type of event for which this alert configuration triggers an alert.

To review the types of events that generate alerts, see Alert Types. For a complete list of events included in the Ops Manager audit log, see Audit Events.

forAllGroups boolean

Toggle that specifies whether the global alert configuration applies to all groups. Also affects whether you can use the tags array to target the configuration to specific groups.

If true, the configuration applies to all groups. You can target the alert configuration to specific groups through the tags array.

If false, the configuration applies only to the groups specified in the groupIds array. You must specify at least one project in the groupIds array. You can’t use the tags array for this alert configuration.

groupIds array of strings IDs of the groups to which this alert configuration applies. This field applies only if forAllGroups is set to false.
id string Unique identifier of the alert configuration.
matchers array of objects

Rules to apply when matching an object against this global alert configuration. Ops Manager only checks entities that match all these rules for an alert condition.

You can filter using the matchers array only when the eventTypeName specifies an event for a host, replica set, or sharded cluster.

matchers.fieldName string

Name of the field in the target object on which to match.

  • Host alerts support these fields:
    • HOSTNAME
    • PORT
    • HOSTNAME_AND_PORT
    • REPLICA_SET_NAME
    • TYPE_NAME
  • Replica set alerts support these fields:
    • REPLICA_SET_NAME
    • SHARD_NAME
    • CLUSTER_NAME
  • Sharded cluster alerts support these fields:
    • CLUSTER_NAME
    • SHARD_NAME

All other types of alerts do not support matchers.

metricThreshold.operator string

Operator to apply when checking the current metric value against metricThreshold.threshold. Possible values are:

  • GREATER_THAN
