Schedule Active Discovery for a Device

With LogicMonitor's REST API you can programmatically schedule Active Discovery for a device in your account.  

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

 

HTTP Method: POST

Resource URI: /device/devices/{id}/scheduleAutoDiscovery

Where {id} is the id of the device you'd like to schedule Active Discovery for.  You can get device ids via the devices resource.

Request Parameters: None

Example

The following script schedules Active Discovery for device 423 in account api.logicmonitor.com:

#!/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 ='POST'
resourcePath = '/device/devices/423/scheduleAutoDiscovery'
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','Accept':'application/json','Authorization':auth}

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

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