The HTTP GET Alert Actions do not work when the Orion Server is connected to the Internet through a proxy with default settings.
The Core Business Layer, which runs the alerting actions, is not configured to work through a proxy.
Check, Whether you using proxy (in Internet Explorer -> Internet Options -> tab Connections -> button LAN settings)
If you see any proxy address configured then a proxy is in use and Orion must be configured to use the proxy also.
Backup the file C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SolarWinds.Orion.Core.BusinessLayer.dll.config to another location.
Edit C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SolarWinds.Orion.Core.BusinessLayer.dll.config and add following lines
<system.net> <!--Specifies whether a web proxy is used. The default value is true.--> <defaultProxy enabled="true"> <proxy proxyaddress="http://youraddressproxy:8080" bypassonlocal="true" /> </defaultProxy> </system.net>
within the </configSections> and <appsettings> tags at the top of the file like the example below,
</configSections> <system.net> <defaultProxy enabled="true"> <proxy proxyaddress="http://yourproxyaddress:8080" bypassonlocal="true" /> </defaultProxy> </system.net> <appSettings>replacing the http://youraddressproxy:8080 with the details of the proxy server seen in the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog.
If above doesn't work, you can also try the following setting in c:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SolarWinds.Orion.Core.BusinessLayer.dll.config:
<system.net> <defaultProxy enabled="true"> <proxy usesystemdefault="true" bypassonlocal="true" /> </defaultProxy> </system.net>
And after restarting the SolarWinds Orion Module Engine service (BusinessLayer).
