You can use LogicMonitor’s REST API to programmatically add ops notes to your account.

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



URI: /setting/opsnotes

Request Parameters: You can POST the following properties for all new ops notes






note The note message Yes String “note”:”software update from 1.0.0 to 1.2.4″
happenedOnInSec The date and time associated with the note, in epoch seconds format No. Defaults to current time Integer “happenOnInSec”:1488826440
scopes The scopes associated with the note. A note with no scope will show up for everything in the account. Each scope object should have a type (device, service, deviceGroup, serviceGroup). For group scopes, a groupId should be specified. For device/service scopes, deviceId/serviceId should be specified & groupId can optionally be included. No. Defaults to no scope JSON Object “scopes”:[{“type”:”device”,”deviceId”:56},{“type”:”service”,”serviceId”:87,”groupId”:74}]
tags The tags that should be associated with the note. Each tag has a unique id and a name – you can either include the name of a new or existing tag, or the id of an existing tag. No. Defaults to no tags JSON Object “tags”:[{“name”:”release”},{“name”:”upgrade”}]



The following Python script adds an Ops Note to account, with note “deploy version 3.4.5” and tag “reporting” to the device with id 530:

#!/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 = '/setting/opsnotes'
queryParams =''
data = '{"note":"deploy version 3.4.5","tags":[{"name":"reporting"}],"scopes":[{"type":"device","deviceId":530}]}'

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

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

#Make request
response =, data=data, headers=headers)

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