Session-based HTTP Notifications

You can now configure event and alarm reporting for generic HTTP POST API service requests in the Citrix SD-WAN appliance GUI. The HTTP alarm and event notification configuration are similar to the email and SNMP events for events and alarms supported in SD-WAN.

The session based HTTP Post notification is sent to an external service; such as Service Now. The event notifications for HTTP server can be configured in the Citrix SD-WAN appliance GUI and Citrix SD-WAN Center.
