Alert

Overview

Alert is a module that can detect anomalies and patterns of interest in a stream or system and send notifications to users. Anomalies and patterns of interest can be set through predefined , and when detected, the module sends an HTTP(S) request to the user's notification server.

Configuration

Alert can be set up on <Server>, as shown below.
<Server version="8">
<Alert>

LongKeyFrameInterval
Detects when the input stream's keyframe interval is too long (exceeds 4 seconds).

Here is a detailed explanation of each element of JSON payload:
Element
Description
sourceUri
URI information of the detected source.
It consists of #<vhost>#<application>/<stream>.
messages
List of messages detected by the Rules.
sourceInfo
Detailed information about the source at the time of detection. It is identical to the response of the REST API's source information query for the detected source.
type
It represents the format of the JSON payload. The information of the JSON elements can vary depending on the value of the type.
Currently, the value is fixed as INGRESS.

Security

The control server may need to validate incoming http requests for security reasons. To do this, the AdmissionWebhooks module puts the X-OME-Signature value in the HTTP request header. X-OME-Signature is a base64 url safe encoded value obtained by encrypting the payload of an HTTP request with the HMAC-SHA1 algorithm using the secret key set in <Alert><SecretKey> of the configuration.

Response

The engine in the closing state does not need any parameter in response. To the query just answer with empty JSON object.
