Feature Idea: Why doesn't the POST call of the Synthetics API return the monitor id?




we want to build a suite of REST apis calls, which would enable our users to create Synthetic monitors, add a label to them and create an alert condition for them. But this does not really work because the POST of the Synthetics API does not return the id of the new monitor. Wouldn’t it be possible to return this in a response?

Kind regards

Hey @wkiNewRelic - That definitely sounds like a response the API should give. I’ll get the feature idea added for the development team to consider.


Hi @RyanVeitch, thank you. It would really be handy to have this response.


Hey @wkiNewRelic, Yup! That makes total sense :smiley:

Thanks again for posting your feature idea here.
