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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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!
