In order to be able to perform certain actions (create-acknowledge-resolve an action), you need to provide a REST Endpoint for the plugin.
To enable the REST Endpoint integration you can go on https://portal.victorops.com/ inside Integrations > 3rd Party Integrations > REST – Generic. You can now copy the URL to notify: <SPLUNK_ON_CALL_REST_ENDPOINT>/$routing_key
https://<tenant-name>.roadie.so/administration/settings/splunk-on-cal and enter the REST endpoint for the configuration.
In case you don’t want to enable incident management via the Roadie application, you can check the “Read Only” checkbox to configure the plugin to only show incidents.

annotations: splunk.com/on-call-routing-key: <SPLUNK_ON_CALL_ROUTING_KEY>
