Alarm Notification - Alternatives to Email
What options are there to forward Alarm Notifications outside of email? Can this be accomplished via a publisher like Http Sender, or is there a way to add other methods to the User Detail?
Can the action of sending the usual Alert Email be a trigger to invoke the Http Sender with a payload of the alarm details as a string?
What would the suggested method be to get alarm details into another systems REST endpoint?

You have many options! If you use a set point event handler, you can script up an arbitrary bunch of sets to whatever kind of point you wish. This could be points published by a Twilio publisher, or any other kind of publisher, or you could set a value to a TCP/IP point and do arbitrary work, or you could use the HttpBuilder to issue a request somewhere. Anything that isn't possible through these mechanisms would probably be possible through a Process Handler.
As far as just sending out alarms through the HttpSender, you can simply have a virtual alphanumeric point that you publish, then use the set point handler to set your alarm message into the alphanumeric point.
For another system's API, you can definitely look into coding scripts with the HttpBuilder, or post a snippet of the API and I can provide a starting point.
