HTTP API Reference
Use the following guidelines for the Grafana OnCall API.
To authorize, use the Authorization header:
# With shell, you can just pass the correct header with each request curl "api_endpoint_here" --header "Authorization: "api_key_here""
Grafana OnCall uses API keys to allow access to the API. You can request a new OnCall API key in OnCall -> Settings page.
An API key is specific to a user and a Grafana stack. If you want to switch to a different stack configuration, request a different API key.
List endpoints such as List Integrations or List Alert Groups return multiple objects.
The OnCall API returns them in pages. Note that the page size may vary.
