Lamp: OpsGenie Command line interface


Lamp is a command line utility to interact with OpsGenie service. It allows users to create and close alerts, attach files, etc. Lamp is used to integrate any management tool that can execute a shell script with OpsGenie. Lamp interacts with the OpsGenie service through the RESTful Web API.

Lamp has a built in contextual help system for obtaining information on available commands, and available options for their use. If you invoke lamp with the --help option, you will see the available list of commands. If you invoke lamp with the --help option with a specific command, you will see the options for that command.

For ease of use apiKey should be set in conf file that lamp will use, for some flexible use cases --apiKey parameter can also be used when executing lamp commands.
