Required. This is the full path to the http(s) endpoint you need to POST/PATCH
The HTTP method, currently supported POST and PATCH. Defaults to POST
This allows you to add headers using a
key=value pattern. You can use this multiple times, each time calling a different key to set multiple headers.
Neither handler templating nor annotation override features are available for this handler because of the way it operates.
Ideally this handler should allow you to post (posibly mutated) json representation of Sensu events to a random http endpoint (like a webhook)
If you need to modify the json event representation in any way, you'll need to do that as part of a Sensu mutator called prior to using the handler.
Unlike other Sensu handlers using the plugin sdk, that read stdin and use it as a Sensu event object, this handler doesn't try to do that and just ships stdin as the body of a http POST request.
So as a result, it can't do some things that relying on a valid event being passed to (like handler templating)
Good question. This is exactly what I would normally do.
But there are situations where using Sensu assets are preferred and curl is difficult to package as an asset because of its library dependencies.
So here we are, This golang executable should be relatively easy to package as a Sensu asset, and should expose just enough http configuration to allow you to send data to a simple webhook url expecting json data.
It will not be as featureful as a curl script, though. So if you need advanced http features like proxy support or private cert, this proof-of-concept handler problably isn't going to get there out of the box.
