Vsphere 6.7 alarm/event log how to get it via curl command

I need to get vsphere alarms via curl command.  How can I do that.

I tried the following and was able to get some info.  But I don't know the keyword for event or alarm

curl -k -i -b cookie-jar.txt https://<host>/rest/vcenter/...

This is very important to us, since we need to monitor the alarm vsphere generate.

Thank you in advance.

doesn't have to be curl command, python solution is even better.  I found getallvms.py and it shows all the VMs.  I just need similar program that shows all alarms or events

   for child in content.rootFolder.childEntity:

      if hasattr(child, 'vmFolder'):

         datacenter = child

         vmFolder = datacenter.vmFolder

         vmList = vmFolder.childEntity

         for vm in vmList:

            PrintVmInfo(vm)

so what's the name of the alarm folder?  is there a API documentation, that give the name of all the available Folders, attributes.  is there a way to list all attributes
