Email-based API

Instead of the conventional HTTPS based API we also offer an email route to Alerting Hub that supports all the published APIs.

To use the email route you must send an email to one of the following email addresses:


The email must have the following:

  • Subject line must be the api call required (e.g. sendalert) without any /api/json preliminary text.
  • An attachment consisting of a single text file, containing the JSON request, and with a filename ending in .json and of type application/json.

Once sent you should receive an email reply (it may take a few minutes to be delivered) containing the response in both the body of the email and as an attachment named ‘response.json’.
