RESTful Call To Identify Servers Probe Exists On

    Hoping that this can be accomplished.  But I have an ask to be able to identify the servers that a probe has been deployed to.  Is this possible through the UIM restful interface?

     

    I was hoping that the call to /rest/computer_systems would have provided that level of detail, but looks like it only provides details of the computer_systems itself, and not their probes.

    Dear Paimon,

     

    via Rest you can run probe call backs like you can via the Probe Utility in Infrastructure Manager or Admin Console. 

    Please see here:

    Probe Calls - CA Unified Infrastructure Management Probes - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    One of the available probe call backs from the controller probe is "probe_list" which will give you a list of the probes installed on a single robot. You could run this to build up the information and then do a search for this, but I am not aware of a call back that would tell you on which robots a specific probe is installed (as you would get via the find function in IM).

     

    Kind Regards,

    Thank You Martin;

     

    I am going to give this a shot.  Essentially what i am trying to do is come up with a script that will go out an get an inventory on how many servers a specific probe (for example, 'oracle') is deployed on.
