Bulk delete Canceled Alerts in vRealize Operations using the REST API and Postman

Hello again! Today a customer was working with the vRealize Operations 8.0 REST API in Postman and trying to bulk delete “Canceled Alerts”. The documentation in the API states that you need to request a DELETE against the https://{vra-fqdn}/suite-api/api/alerts/bulk API and you should be OK. Well, not exactly. I’ll start this post by assuming that you’ve seen the excellent Postman collection on VMware {code}. This will get you up and running quickly and allow you to login and get an authentication token.

vRealize Operations Manager - Outbound REST Notification log location

A quick post today! I was trying to configure the vRealize Operations Manager Outbound REST notification plugin recently and I was having a few issues doing a POST or PUT operation against the specified endpoint. Specifically, I was getting the following message: Test was not successful: Failed to post or put to the server. I tried looking around the vROPs Logs section under Administration > Support > Logs but couldn’t find anything specific for Outbound Notification plugins.
