Delete Device Group Properties

You can use LogicMonitor’s REST API to programmatically delete device group properties.

Note: As with all of our API calls, authentication is required.


Resource URI: /device/groups/{groupID}/properties/{propertyName}

Where groupID is the ID of the group you’d like to delete a property from, and propertyName is the name of the property you’d like to delete (in all lower case characters).


The following Python script deletes property ‘proddc’ from group 34:

#!/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 ='DELETE'
resourcePath = '/device/groups/34/properties/proddc'
queryParams =''
data = ''

#Construct URL 
url = 'https://'+ Company +'' + resourcePath + queryParams

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

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

#Construct signature
hmac1 =,msg=requestVars.encode(),digestmod=hashlib.sha256).hexdigest()
signature = base64.b64encode(hmac1.encode())

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

#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)
