Lately I’ve been interacting a lot with REST APIs. I found that testing an API from within an application can sometimes cause some issues. For instance, when setting up a webhook notification instance using vROPS you only have a simple test button. But what if the application you want to access requires authentication and all you want to test is if you are able to access a URL via a HTTP proxy server?
The way in which you can customize notifications in vROPS has significantly improved in version 8.6. You now have the ability to use payload templates that can include all sorts of vROPS properties. This way you can make your alerts much more meaningful.
