Controller (SaaS, On Premises)

Custom Events Policy and Actions


Custom Events Policy and Actions

Good day,


I am having a problem with generating a custom event via a POST request that I am doing.


I suspect that the elements that I am using are not entirely correct though and just need some pointers on what to tweak so that I can get it to work.



https://appd.controller.urlXXX/controller/rest/applications/XXX/events?severity=ERROR&summary= Application Stopped_Test&eventtype=CUSTOM&customeventtype=D_Test&comment=Please_start_application”


The response indicates that the event was successfully created: “Successfully created the event id:6665520987”, but when I check in AppD under the events dashboard, I see zero events. However, when I do not specify the event type and custom event, I am able to view the custom event in AppD.


It seems that the “eventtype” and customeventtype properties are the problem, any Ideas?

A good colleague of mine, @Mario.Morelli  reminded me that the Custom filter needs to be enabled. This will display all of the custom events, thanks to Mario:-)


So the POST request is indeed correct!

" Application Stopped_Test&eventtype=CUSTOM&customeventtype=D_testapp&comment=Please_start_application"
