Is it possible to retrieve alarms via a REST command?
Our operations area has setup a "StruxureOn Gateway 126.96.36.199" and would like for alerts from managed UPS' to integrate with our on-premise alerting screens and structure, not necessarily through the web interface.
Any assistance/direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your question. The Gateway does have a basic REST API which is used by its local web interface to display devices, alarms, and sensors. It is not currently published for public consumption as we have changed it a few times over the last few releases, though it's fairly straightforward to interpret through inspection. Could you describe your use case in more detail? It could help our development team prioritize and develop the most appropriate solution. Thanks!

We are utilizing the Microsoft System Center suite as our central repository for monitoring, alerting and automation.
Having multiple screens open for our Operators to watch and act upon is an overwhelming task. We centralize our alerting for distributed systems in a single console (SC Operations Manager).
My goal/intent was to "get" the alarms out of your product/gateway into this system via the REST API as there is not a System Center Management Pack for SCOM or an Intelligence Pack for Orchestrator.
