How to stop icinga2 notifications via API

Hi guys,

what is the correct command to stop the notifications via API?
Basicly we are trying to disable the notifications like via the web interface available at

I tried that according to and it did not work:

curl -X POST -H "Accept: application/json" -u user:password "https://icinga-master/icingaweb2/monitoring/health/info" -F "notifications_enabled=0"

I would recommend writing a module that does “something similar” like the monitoring/health/info toggle and provide it with a working rest api call or open a ticket in github

You could simply switch off notifications with the icinga2 shell command ({icinga2 feature …}), and then restart the Icinga service. Not API but shell commands…

Not sure if that’s exactly what you want, but only for one host :

curl -k -u 'username:a_key' \
-H 'Accept: application/json' \
-d '{ "attrs": { "enable_notifications": false } }' \
'' | jq

I was in the application log the other day, in the Debug Section, and I read something rather odd about a bit of rare log entry. It’s called, as I understand it… Toggle Notification through icinga2 api.

Executing curl -s -X POST -H 'Accept: application/json' -k -u 'user':'password' -d '{"attrs":{"enable_notifications":false}}' 'https://icinga-master:5665/v1/objects/icingaapplications/app'

Executing curl -s -X POST -H 'Accept: application/json' -k -u 'user':'password' -d '{"attrs":{"enable_notifications":true}}' 'https://icinga-master:5665/v1/objects/icingaapplications/app'

I came across the term while reading, be careful it is icinga2 api not icingaweb2 api, so you need a icinga2 api user

something more official :slight_smile: :

“Actions which affect the Icinga Application itself such as disabling notification on a program-wide basis must be applied by updating the IcingaApplication object called app.” →

curl -k -s -S -i -u root:icinga -H 'Accept: application/json' \
 -X POST 'https://localhost:5665/v1/objects/icingaapplications/app' \
 -d '{ "attrs": { "enable_notifications": false } }'

I also activated the debug log and played around with the Notifications button, but seems I oversaw those entries.

That is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much! :slight_smile:
