Can Paessler please consider adding a new notification type to allow PRTG to communicate to any another system using a REST API? This would be very useful for sending alerts and generating tickets in other systems. For an example of the latter, please see http://api.freshservice.com/.

Hi Simon,

Would this not be possible with EXECUTE HTTP ACTION notification ?

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it encodes the POSTDATA, which messes with any JSON-formatted data you're trying to submit to the REST API. See KB:HTTP notification.

Greetings Simon,
we appreciate your feature suggestion and contact.

I'm afraid that such implementation isn't planned for the foreseeable future, since it is possible to Execute a Program as a notification, it is our understanding that it allows such special cases to be handled by creating a script (powershell Invoke-RestMethod or similar) or exe application to forward the notification over HTTP with REST when required.

Best Regards,
