    Hello,

     

    you can achieve any kind of automation by calling UIM restful webservices (e.g. invoke a callback via curl) or just to report on elements per group or simply to extract qos metrics and integrate UIM with 3rd party solutions via API.

    HTH,

    Nestor

    Hi,

    You could use the rest services for:

    - define maintenance calendar and add devices in that dalendar

    - genarate almost every pu command

    - get alarms

    - get hub and robot list & info

    If you look at: Maintenance Mode via command line 2.6 (rest api) , you can find a Perl example how to define a calendar and add devices into that maintenance calendar.

    The problem if defining a maintenance via REST services that this is a 3 step process:

    - create calendar (and save the calendar id)

    - get dev_id of device(s) that you want to put in maintenance

    - add the dev_id in the calendar_id

    So it will not work with hostname or IP address.

    Not the last time I looked into the rest manual, it was still a very user unfriendly process.

    But when using the rest services in a script, it's doable.
