Dear All,

WE are running infobox NIOS in system, and we wanted to automate the daily grid status of the same via rest API

 

we are using rest API as mentioned from ServiceNow Platform as http query 

 

https://infoblox.com /wapi/v2.9/grid 

for extracting the grid status command execution shows success as 200, but no result gets populated i am doing something wrong 

In GUI I can see the grid status but not via Rest API as it appears as Blank 

Help will be highly appreciated

in your call, grid is an object, not a data field.  If you want to get the grid status, you need to ask for the service_status field.

 

for example:

https://gm.example.com/wapi/v2.12/grid?_return_fields%2b=service_status

 

 

Also for individual appliances, take a look at the member object, and the service status:

 

https://gm.example.com/wapi/v2.12/member?_return_fields%2b=service_status

 

or the member node info:

 

https://gm.example.com/wapi/v2.12/member?_return_fields%2b=node_info

What version of NIOS are you running?  Can you post the exact code you're using?  it's working for me here, even with earlier WAPI versions.

You can use WAPI version 2.11 on NIOS 8.5.x.  Here is an example using the unix curl command:

 

 

curl -k -u admin:infoblox -X GET 'https://gm.example.com/wapi/v2.11/grid?_return_fields%2b=service_status'

 

If all appliances are online, and all services are running normally, the response will look like this:

[
    {
        "_ref": "grid/b25lLmNsdXN0ZXIkMA:My_Grid", 
        "service_status": "WORKING"
    }
]

 

If there are issues with appliances or services, the grid's service status will be in error:

 

[
    {
        "_ref": "grid/b25lLmNsdXN0ZXIkMA:My_Grid", 
        "service_status": "FAILED"
    }
]

HI Matt,

Thanks for the resolution , as i am looking via http interface and via curl i am getting 2 things 

via http get query, it is saying service status as_

<service_Status>FAILED </service_status>

<_ref>grid/b25xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:infoblox</ref>

</value>

 

and when  i am running via curl 

403 forbidden you dont have permission to access /wapi/v2.11/grid on this server.
