Automate using webhook

1. Go to Instatus dashboard, under Monitoring, select Webhook.

2. Copy the Webhook URL using copy to clipboard button.

3. If you want to open a new incident, send a POST request to the URL with the following body

Encode it as JSON with the Content-Type: application/json header.

{
  "trigger": "down",
  "name": "Sample incident name", // title of incident (optional)
  "message": "Sample incident message", // incident message (optional)
  "status": "MAJOROUTAGE" // affected component status - (optional)
}

If you want to resolve an incident, send a POST request to the URL with the following body

{
  "trigger": "up", 
  "name": "Sample incident name", // (optional, include it if you want to resolve a specific incident by using the name as the one you opened)
