Get Escalation Chains

You can use LogicMonitor's REST API to programmatically get your Escalation Chains. With the Escalation Chains resource, you can:

  1. Get a list of all Escalation Chains
  2. Get information about a particular Escalation Chain

As with all of our API calls, authentication is required
