REST API Developer's Guide

Get Group-level Thresholds

You can use LogicMonitor's REST API to view group level thresholds for a particular datasource.

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


HTTP Method: GET

URI: /device/groups/{groupId}/datasources/{datasourceId}/alertsettings


  • {groupId} is the id of the group you'd like to see thresholds for.  You can get group Ids from a GET request to the groups resource.
  • {datasourceId} is the id of the datasource you'd like to see thresholds for.  You can get datasource Id by making a GET request to /device/groups/{groupId}/datasources

Request Parameters: You can include a fields parameter in your request to control what data is included in the response and how it is formatted:




Example URI

fields fields={list of properties separated by commas} Filters the response to only include the following fields for each object /device/groups/9/datasources/24/alertsettings?fields=dataPointName,alertExpr,disableAlerting



The following Python script will return the thresholds for datapoints associated with devices in group 55 & datasource 678:

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

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