The documentation says that the SelectorSet to access/update/delete an alert via WS-Man uses MdrProduct, MdrProdInstance, MDRElementID - however, EVERY example provided by CA uses AlertId.
Is it possible to access an alert using the MdrID triple - or is the documentation in error?
But this (as documented) does not: <wsman:SelectorSet>
<wsman:Selector Name="MdrProduct">CA:09996</wsman:Selector> <wsman:Selector Name="MdrProdInstance">somehost.net</wsman:Selector> <wsman:Selector Name="MdrElementID">somealert</wsman:Selector> </wsman:SelectorSet>
See "Example: Update the ticket number of an alert" section in
The example uses all those properties to update an alert with ticket id.
Just FYI - We are not developing WS anymore, it is going away, we recommend using REST instead.
Regarding the FYI about WS: REST does not support complete functionality to create/update/remove ALL of the SOI objects (eg binary relationships for example) - so we must continue to use WS webservices.
Let me see if I can get some information on this from our developers. I'll let you know once I hear from them.
Thanks. At a minumum we need to be able to
Currently, REST only supports 1 and 4 (and using GCEventAddCmd is not a robust solution).
