Build Status

Required Graylog version: 2.4 and later

This plugin enables you to call the Topdesk API to create incidents.

Restart graylog-server and you are done.

Use cases

This plugin is useful when you need to create incidents in Topdesk.


Configure the alarm callback

You can configure an alert condition in Graylog and add the Topdesk Alarm Callback as the Callback Type. In the popup that occurs you can configure the options to send the incident. Not all optional API request fields are implemented, but this should get you going. Also some find and replace in the description makes it possible to define a template and replace the placeholders with a field value for the first message. You can also use some basic HTML tags as described in the Topdesk API for the request field.

Note : Currently an HTTPS connection is established over without verifying certificates. Connection options might be extended in the future.
