You can use LogicMonitor’s REST API to programmatically get information about your LogicMonitor device groups. You can either get a list of device groups or you can get details for a particular device group.
As with all of our API calls, authentication is required.
Returns a list of device groups
HTTP Method: GET
Request Parameters: By default, a list of 50 device groups will be returned. You can include sort, filter, fields, size and offset parameters in your request to control what data is included in the response and how it is formatted. Note that query parameters are not considered part of the resource path, and should not be included the calculation of the LMv1 authentication signature.
Returns details for a particular device group
Request Parameters: You can include a filter parameter that controls which fields are displayed in the response:
The following Python script returns the custom properties, name, id & number of devices for the device group(s) with ‘prodServers’ in the name:
Company = 'api'
resourcePath = '/device/groups'
queryParams = '?filter=name~prodServers&fields=customProperties,id,name,numOfHosts'
data = ''
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
hmac1 = hmac.new(AccessKey.encode(),msg=requestVars.encode(),digestmod=hashlib.sha256).hexdigest()
signature = base64.b64encode(hmac1.encode())
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + signature.decode() + ':' + epoch
response = requests.get(url, data=data, headers=headers)
#Print status and body of response
