The following Python script updates Collector 223:

#!/bin/env python

import requests
import json
import hashlib
import base64
import time
import hmac

#Account Info
AccessId ='48v2wRzfK94y53sq5EuF'
AccessKey ='H_D9i(f5~B^U36^K6i42=^nS~e75gy382Bf6{)P+'
Company = 'api'

#Request Info
httpVerb ='PUT'
resourcePath = '/setting/collectors/223'
queryParams = ''
data = '{"description":"prodCollector1","escalatingChainId":20,"collectorGroupId":4,"backupAgentId":85}'

#Construct URL 
url = 'https://'+ Company +'.logicmonitor.com/santaba/rest' + resourcePath +queryParams

#Get current time in milliseconds
epoch = str(int(time.time() * 1000))

#Concatenate Request details
requestVars = httpVerb + epoch + data + resourcePath

#Construct signature
signature = base64.b64encode(hmac.new(AccessKey,msg=requestVars,digestmod=hashlib.sha256).hexdigest())

#Construct headers
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + signature + ':' + epoch
headers = {'Content-Type':'application/json','Authorization':auth}

#Make request
response = requests.put(url, data=data, headers=headers)

#Print status and body of response
print 'Response Status:',response.status_code
print 'Response Body:',response.content
