REST API Developer's Guide

Delete Device Properties

You can use LogicMonitor's REST API to programmatically delete properties for your devices.

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

 

HTTP Method: DELETE

Resource URI: /device/devices/{deviceID}/properties/{propertyName}

Where device ID is the ID of the device you'd like to delete a property for, which you can get via the devices resource. propertyName is the name of the property you'd like to delete (in all lower case characters), which you can get by retrieving all device properties.

Example

The following Python script will delete the property with name proddc:

#!/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/devices/4374/properties/proddc'
queryParams =''
data = ''

#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.delete(url, data=data, headers=headers)

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