Adding devices when they boot

Last updated on 01 December, 2020

You can use LogicMonitor’s REST API  to ensure that a device adds itself into monitoring upon startup. Providing the ability to self-register with your monitoring platform is essential when taking advantage of AWS, Azure, GCP, Rackspace, and other clouds services, in which devices are provisioned automatically in response to load.


See this page for an example script that adds a device into monitoring and can be integrated into the startup script for your devices.


You can proliferate this setting across datacenter devices using puppet, chef, or cfengine.

Note: A system can run this command at every startup. If the device already exists in monitoring, no action is taken.
