Create a REST action

Before you begin

Create diagnostic system modules

To create a new REST action:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, select Diagnostics > Diagnostic Modules.
  3. In the Diagnostic System Modules table, select the name of the diagnostic system module you want to assign the REST action to.
  4. Select Configuration > Policies and Actions > Actions.
  5. Click New.
  6. Select REST from the Type list and click Next.
  7. Enter a name for the REST action in the Action Name field.
  8. Enter the timeout period in the Timeout (in seconds) field. The timeout period is the length of time, in seconds, that an action has to complete execution. By default, the timeout period is 0, which disables the action timeout.
  9. To enable or disable the action, select or deselect the Enable Action box.
  10. Click Next.
  11. On the REST Action Properties page:
    1. In Endpoint URL, enter the REST endpoint URL to invoke.
    2. In REST Invocation Method, enter the REST invocation method for invoking the endpoint.
    3. In Accepted Response Type, select the response type to use to configure the Accept header of the HTTP request to the REST endpoint.
    4. In HTTP Authentication Mode, select the authentication mode to use when invoking the REST endpoint URL.
    5. In HTTP Authentication User Name, enter the user name to use when the REST endpoint is secured.
    6. In HTTP Authentication Password, enter the password to use when the REST endpoint is secured.
    7. In Custom Notification Properties, enter custom notification properties to customize the JSON object delivered to the REST endpoint.
  12. Click Finish.
  13. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
