    vRops Webhook

    elliott0184 Novice

      Hi all,

       

      I am currently trying to send vRops alerts to Ms Teams (that we have just started using). After a bit of googling i came across a webhook middle man to process the request and put it backout for the webhook on ms teams to accept. The middleman is a docker container. (GitHub - vmw-loginsight/webhook-shims: Shims for Log Insight 3.3+ and vRealize Operations Manager 6.0+ ) I have this up and running i can ping both the vrops server and middleman from each other.

       

      According to the output on the middleman it is reciving the POST but it doesnt seem to be pusing it any further.

      This is what the output on the server looks like {

      2018-07-31 13:49:51,619 INFO 172.16.191.47 - - [31/Jul/2018 13:49:51] "POST /endpoint/msteams/test HTTP/1.1" 500 -

      2018-07-31 13:49:51,629 INFO 172.16.191.47 - - [31/Jul/2018 13:49:51] "PUT /endpoint/msteams/test HTTP/1.1" 500 -

      }

       

      I have added in the webhook urlfrom teams in the appropriate section. Has anyone used this before.

       

      Kind Regards

          Have you got all pre-requisites configured on vrops with respective to this rest API calls.

           

          Also from the middleman msteam is there any communication gap to Vrops .

            I have all the prerequisites that i am aware of installed, i don't think there is a gap as i said it appears that the middleman is reciving information from vRops it just doens't seem to be passing it on from there.

             

            More of the output;

              If thats the case then I beilive we may have to look between the middle man and the application to which you are sending the alert to .

               

              Is there any thing stopping there that you could see ?

                I have checked if the file holding the config for the output address has executable permissions (not that it should make a difference), i have ensured that there is no firewall blocking the middle man and the vrops server.  I am able to get to the webhook url from inside the business firewall so i dought that it is being blocked by that either.

                I have re added the webhook connector in teams a couple of times and then updated the url in the settings.

                  Not on the Vrops or middle man i.e docker as you as said, but the endpoint which is msteam( to which the alert needs to sent)

                    did you add your endpoint to the __init__.py

                     

                    also when you send the alert to the shim server what does the journalctl file say ( i am using photon and not docker so not sure if the log is the same)

                      So on Ms Teams we have set-up the incoming webhook. It then gives you a url for you to send the webhook to.

                      This i what i get when i browse to the url.

                        The msteams is imported in the __init__.py on the last line. Is that i needed to add for that point.

                         

                        The docker container doesn't have a journalctl but the host doesn't seem to flag up any errors at all when looking though it. Also, the docker logs seem not to have any errors in it

                          From what i can see is you have created a new endpoint on the shim named MSteams.py

                           

                          In the /loginsightwebhookdemo/webhook-shims/loginsightwebhookdemo you have the msteams.py

                           

                          in the same folder have you edited the __init__.py and added in the new endpoint under # Import individual shims

                           

                          import loginsightwebhookdemo.msteams

                           

                          reboot the shim. this will load your endpoint.

                           

                          Edit the msteams.py with the info you have ( target msteams url and the rest fields of the incoming alert to the output fields that msteams will use)

                           

                          # Parameters

                          TEMPLATEURL = 'http://your target.com'

                           

                          This is what we use for the transform

                           

                          payload = {

                                "result": {

                                     "TransformerName": "VMWare",

                                     "AlertMessage": a['info'],

                                     "EventInstance": a['subType'],

                                     "Criticality": a['criticality'],

                                     "EventName": a['AlertName'],

                                     "HostName": a['resourceName'].replace('.ourcompany.com',''),

                                     "EventType": a['type'],

                                     "EventSubType": a['subType'],

                                     "type": "link",

                                     "url": a['url'],

                            This is the files that are inside the folder. The __init__.py does have the import loginsightwebhookdemo.msteams in is and here is the msteams.py file

                             

                            The URL goes on and on but didnt want to make the picture massive and unreadble. I have tired it without the brackets but it makes no difference either way
