This API allows you to send multiple, different, alerts at the same time. In effect this API removes the need for you to call sendalert multiple times and is most often of use when specifying a set of linked alerts for scenarios such as escalation. Each alert specified in the sendalerts API call is treated as if you had called the sendalert API multiple times, as such you will receive a different alertId for each alert.
You should keep in mind that the sendalert API can itself call, send SMS and email many different groups of people with many different messages all within a single alert and, as such, will be the API call most often used in the majority of circumstances.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
