Alert properties

List of properties

All alerts send the same list of properties across all alert types, they relate to both:
  • The alert that you set on Sonar
  • The event that triggered your alert
Below are the properties passed in the json:
key
type
options
event_id
int
Open
timestamp
timestamptz
Open
type
string
Limited to 4
alert_name
string
Open
event_verbose
string
Open
domain
string
Open
The event_verbose has been added to allow further flexibility on the way you use the alert.
As opposed to event properties or company properties, alert properties are not sent in a nested json but rather sent directly in the first level of the json object as shown below:

"event_id": 458325, // Not nested
