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.

Note: The scripts provided below are for example illustration purpose only. You must securely store and retrieve sensitive information such as AccessId and AccessKey in your implementation.

#!/bin/env python

import requests
import json
import hashlib
import base64
import time
import hmac
import gatepass

#Account Info: LogicMonitor recommends to NEVER hardcode the credentials. Instead, retrieve the values from a secure storage.
#Note: The below is provided for illustration purposes only.
AccessId = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessId: ")
AccessKey = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessKey: ")
Company = 'apiAccount'

#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
digest =
signature = base64.b64encode(digest.encode('utf-8')).decode('utf-8')
# Construct headers
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + str(signature) + ':' + epoch
# Make request
response =, data=data, headers=headers)
# Print status and body of response
print('Response Status:',response.status_code)
print('Response Body:',response.content)
