Python helper script- An easy way launch jobs while testing code.

Contantly clicking through the system gets tedious when testing your job code.  Especially, when you use the same handful of devices to test on.

 

To speed things up, I created a small Python script that you can run on the CLI to kick off your job.

It's not perfect code.   Just a quick script I cobbled together to help me out.

I haven't seen anyone post similar on the forums here, so I thought I would pass it along and maybe it will be useful to you as well.

 

To change the job, just edit the 'runURL' line.

 

#!/usr/bin/env python3
# -*- coding: UTF-8 -*-

import getpass
import json
import requests
requests.packages.urllib3.disable_warnings()
import urllib.request, urllib.parse, urllib.error

username=eval('input("Username: ")')
password=getpass.getpass('Password: ')
netmri="https://netmri.domain.com/api/3.0"
debug="1"

def api_query(path,rType):
    if debug == "1": print(("Sending "+netmri+path))
    r=requests.get(netmri+path, verify=False, auth=(username, password))
    if rType is "json":
        return r.json()
    elif rType is "text":
        print((r.text))
    else:
        print("Return Type not defined\n")
        exit (1)

def execute_job(devices):
    #runURL="/scripts/run?name=1_IOS Fixed Switch Upgrade&$use_http=on&$server=192.168.1.2&$new_image_name=c3560e-universalk9-mz.152-4.E6.bin&$new_image_size=26945536&$new_image_md5=4d485474740ec55fb7853ca866e5c0c4&$reload_now=on&$enable_changes=on&device_ids="+devices
    runURL="/scripts/run?name=Z_SetRealModel&device_ids="+devices
    api_query(runURL,"text")

I like Python anguage because it is easy to code everything from games to space science, and can be introduced and embedded into a Python program in merely seconds. This adaptability implies that the Central Intelligence Agency has utilized it for hacking, Google for creeping site pages, Pixar for delivering motion pictures and Spotify for prescribing tunes.
