    Hi All,

    I want to start the virtual service which is down ( via API call through java )

    I need to start the service for which I tried

    http://<<VSE server name>>/api/Dcm/VSEs/{ServiceName}/{VirtualServiceName}/actions/start

    If I post the above in browser , I am getting "1008 Method Not Allowed"

    Pls let me know how to start the virtual service via API.

    From the Lisa-Invoke-2.0 interface description:


    POST /VSEs/{serviceName}/{virtualServiceName}/actions/start

    Start a virtual service in a VSE


    You need to do a POST, you cannot do this in a browser, this will always be a GET. Instead use POSTMAN, or curl, or ... where you can do a POST

    Thanks for the response. I tried the post call in DevTest itself and got the authorization error. Later after providing the credentials I was able to start the virtual services via Lisa Invoke API call.

    Hi Kavitha,

    You can use below format for a POST call:

     http://<<VSE server name>>:[port]/api/Dcm/VSEs/{serviceName}/{virtualServiceName}/actions/start/

    serviceName = VSE Name (by default the VSE name is "VSE")
    virtualServiceName = Virtual Service Name

    Another option is to invoke the cmd utility VSE Manager to start the service with the below format command:
    VSEManager [--registry name | --vse nameofVSE| --username=username |--password=password ] --start vs-name
