REST API Developer's Guide

Export Datasources to XML

You can use LogicMonitor's REST API to programmatically export one or all datasources to XML.  

As with all of our API requests, authentication is required.

 

Export All Datasources to XML

HTTP Method:GET

URI: /setting/datasources?format=xml

 

Export One Datasource to XML

HTTP Method:GET

URI: /setting/datasources/{id}?format=xml

Where the id should be the datasource id.  You can find this id in the UI by looking at the URL of the datasource definition:

Export One Datasource to XML

Note that soon we will publish the resource and method that enable you to get datasource ids with the REST API.  

 

Example 1: Export All Datasources to XML

The following Python script returns XML for all datasources in api.logicmonitor.com and saves it to a file allDatasources.xml.

#!/bin/env python

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

#Account Info
AccessId ='J62te62B8u7WnCR846h6'
AccessKey ='{[H^LX=^Zg^32yp-x(-2Bq22vZ~^u-k3)8!9[7U^'
Company = 'api'

#Request Info: Get xml for all datasources
httpVerb ='GET'
resourcePath = '/setting/datasources'
queryParams = '?format=xml'

#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 + 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.get(url, headers=headers)

#Print status of response and save response body to file
print 'Response Status:',response.status_code
file_ = open('allDatasources.xml', 'w')
file_.write(response.content)
file_.close()



 

Example 2: Export One Datasource to XML

The following Python script returns XML for the datasource with id 345 in api.logicmonitor.com and saves it to a file dat345.xml.

#!/bin/env python

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

#Account Info
AccessId ='J62te62B8u7WnCR846h6'
AccessKey ='{[H^LX=^Zg^32yp-x(-2Bq22vZ~^u-k3)8!9[7U^'
Company = 'api'

#Request Info: Get xml for datasource 345
httpVerb ='GET'
resourcePath = '/setting/datasources/345'
queryParams = '?format=xml'

#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 + 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.get(url, headers=headers)

#Print status of response and save response body to file
print 'Response Status:',response.status_code
file_ = open('dat345.xml', 'w')
file_.write(response.content)
file_.close()
