ITSI REST API reference

The ITSI REST API is recommended for administrators and developers with REST API experience only. All POST and DELETE operations are irreversible.

This reference describes Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) REST API endpoints exposed via the splunkd management port 8089. You can use this API to interact programmatically and extend the functionality of ITSI.

For information on the Splunk platform REST API, see the Splunk REST API User Manual.

ITSI REST API usage details

Before using the ITSI REST API, consider the following:

  • Use the splunkd management port, 8089, and secure HTTPS protocol.
    https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/...
    
  • Only the latest version of ITSI is supported for all APIs. Either don't specify a version or specify vLatest after the interface name.
    /servicesNS/<user>/<app>/itoa_interface/vLatest/....
    
  • The API performs capability and RBAC checks. For capability requirements, see Configure users and roles in ITSI.
  • In most cases, <user> is nobody and <app> is SA-ITOA.
  • splunkd core settings for compression, payload limits, and so on in the web.conf file apply to endpoints.

How to use the filter parameter

The ITSI REST API uses the MongoDB syntax of rules expressions to filter the payload.

Example 1: Use filter to look up an object with title "Web Service."

curl -k -u admin:password https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/SA-ITOA/itoa_interface/service?fields='title'&filter='{"title":"Web+Service"}'

See db.collection.find in the MongoDB reference manual.

Example 2: Use filter to do wildcard lookup against the REST API.

curl -k -u admin:password https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/SA-ITOA/itoa_interface/<object_type>?fields='<field_name1>,<field_name2>'&filter='{"<field_name>":{"$regex":".*"}}' 

See $regex in the MongoDB reference manual.

How to use the rest command for SA-ITOA endpoints

You can use the Splunk rest command, see rest command to perform REST operations within Splunk Web. Remove the curl command from the request body to form a search similar to the following:

| rest splunk_server=local /servicesNS/nobody/SA-ITOA/event_management_interface/correlation_search report_as=text

The rest command has some arguments that differ from those accepted by REST API endpoints. For example, the limit argument for endpoints is replaced by the count argument, so \?limit\=1 is replaced by count=1

As of ITSI version 4.4.0, in order to continue using | rest for SA-ITOA endpoints, you must add report_as=text to your Splunk searches. Otherwise those searches stop working. For more information, see Removed features in Splunk IT Service Intelligence.

Endpoint interface categories

ITSI REST API endpoints are organized into the following interface categories based on the scenarios they target.

Category Description
ITOA Interface Perform operations on core ITSI objects such as entities, services, service templates, and deep dives.
Event Management Interface Perform operations on ITSI event management objects such as episodes, aggregation policies, and correlation searches.
Maintenance Services Interface Perform operations on ITSI maintenance windows.
Backup Restore Interface Perform operations on ITSI backup and restore jobs.
Glass table icon interface Perform operations on ITSI glass table icons stored in the KV store.

itoa_interface/service/<_key>/base_service_template

Perform bulk link operations from one or more services to a service template. Requires write access to the specific services and read access to Global team.

GET

Get the key value for the service template linked to a service.

Request parameters
None.

Data payload
None.

Return
Dictionary of {'_key': service_template_id}

Example request and response

curl -k -u admin:password https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/SA-ITOA/itoa_interface/service/5a0084fd-a090-42fa-9283-0bbe5080429c/base_service_template

JSON Response

{  
   "_key":"00a2f562-19ad-4398-8f12-918bc04a372b"
}

POST

Link one or more services to a service template.

When linking a service to a service template via the UI where entity rules are defined, you have the option of appending or replacing the rules in the template or keeping the existing rules. However, changing the linked service template via REST gives no option to handle entity rules. As a result, the request defaults to appending template rules. If you want to replace or keep the existing rules, edit the template through the UI instead of the API.

Request parameters
None.

Data payload
A dictionary of valid schema for the object type. See ITSI REST API schema.

Return
Dictionary of {'_key': service_template_id}

Example request and response

curl -k -u admin:password -X POST -H "Accept: application/json" -H "Content-type: application/json" --data '{"_key": "491b90d8-62f3-4aeb-be9e-6ccb0b7e63b8"}'  https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/SA-ITOA/itoa_interface/service/6b0dda59-de86-4b9d-8817-460b5091d28c/base_service_template

Event Management Interface

This interface encapsulates operations on the following ITSI event management objects:

  • event_management_state
  • notable_event_group
  • notable_event_comment
  • notable_event_aggregation_policy
  • notable_event_email_template
  • correlation_search

As of version 4.4.x, episode comments are append only. ITSI no longer supports update and delete operations on the notable_event_comment object type.

Data payload
Dictionary of valid schema for the object types for POST. POST is considered an upsert. See ITSI REST API schema.

Return
The key of the object created.

Example request and response

curl -k -u admin:password https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/SA-ITOA/event_management_interface/notable_event_group -X POST -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{"data":{"status":"1","severity":"4","_key":"004b2eed-4551-481f-9487-9cf96b58e59d"}}'

JSON Response

{  
   "_key":"004b2eed-4551-481f-9487-9cf96b58e59d"
}

DELETE

Delete event management objects.

Request parameters

Name Type Description
is_partial_data Boolean 1 if the payload is a partial payload. 0 indicates the entire payload for the object schema is provided and overwrites the existing object. Default is 0.
sort_key String Name of field to sort by.
sort_dir Integer How to sort the results. 1 for ascending and 0 for descending.
limit Integer The maximum number of entries to return. If limit isn't set, all entries are returned.
skip Integer The number of entries to skip from the start. Used primarily for paging.
fields String A comma-separated list of field names to select from the results.
filter_data String MongoDB syntax of rules expressions to filter the payload. See How to use the filter parameter.

To prevent accidental deletion of good data, make sure to use the correct filter syntax. Incorrect filter syntax will cause all rows to be deleted for the object type. A better method for deletion is to use a key, such as "60d9300f-0942-4bda-bdec-5ad4baf633b6", rather than a filter.

JSON Response


event_management_interface/<object_type>/<_key>

API to perform CRUD operations on a single object. The key is the value populated in the _key field returned in the REST call for upsert.

Note: Closing an episode through the API changes its status to Closed but doesn't break the episode, so it continues to receive events. To break an episode through the API, you must make two REST calls. For instructions, see Modify episode fields through the REST API in the Event Analytics manual.

GET

Get information about an event management object such as an episode or an aggregation policy.

Request parameters
None.

Data Payload
None.

Return
A JSON object of key-value pairs describing the object queried.
