Deleting Devices

Last updated on 17 November, 2023

You can use LogicMonitor REST API v3 to delete devices. You must authenticate yourself before making the API request.

URI: DELETE device/devices/{id}

deleteHardBooleanIndicates if you want to permanently delete the device. By default, it is set to true.
idInteger(Mandatory) It is the ID of the device you want to delete.

Use the following Python script to delete a device with ID 425 from account.

#!/bin/env python
import requests
import json
import hashlib
import base64
import time
import hmac
import getpass
#Account Info: LogicMonitor recommends to NEVER hardcode the credentials. Instead, retrieve the values from a secure storage.
#Note: The below is provided for illustration purposes only.
AccessId = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessId: ")
AccessKey = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessKey: ")
Company = 'apiAccount'
#Request Info
httpVerb ='DELETE'
resourcePath = '/device/devices/425'
data = ''
#Construct URL
url = 'https://'+ Company +'' + resourcePath
#Get current time in milliseconds
epoch = str(int(time.time() * 1000))
#Concatenate Request details
requestVars = httpVerb + epoch + data + resourcePath  
#Construct signature
digest =
signature = base64.b64encode(digest.encode('utf-8')).decode('utf-8')  
#Construct headers
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + str(signature) + ':' + epoch
headers = {'Content-Type':'application/json','Authorization':auth,'X-Version':3}
#Make request
response = requests.delete(url, data=data, headers=headers)
#Print status and body of response
print('Response Status:',response.status_code)
print('Response Body:',response.content)
