Step 3. Send a web request
Select the Send web request, which will update Statuspage.
To configure the Send web request action you will need your Statuspage API key and page code. These values can be found in the Statuspage documentation. Send web request is an advanced action with sensitive input values. Later in this guide, this action will be reproduced in additional rules, and will reference this configuration.
In the Webhook URL field, enter the URL of the Statuspage incidents endpoint:
Replace the your-page-code placeholder with your Statuspage page code. In the headers section, enter Authorization:OAuth and your API key into the two header fields.
Set the HTTP Method to POST and set the Webhook body to Custom Data.
Make sure you check the Wait For Response check box since you will use values from the web request response in additional components.
The Custom Data field includes code that defines an incident payload for the Statuspage API. This code uses smart values to extract and add the issue summary to the payload. The following screenshot displays the complete configuration of the Send web request action. Click Save to continue.
