/rest/app_status

Syntax

https://<username>:<password>@<host>/rest/app_status

GET

Get test connectivity status for each asset.

Example request

curl -k -u uname:pwd https://localhost/rest/app_status -G -X GET

Example response
A successful GET returns a default paging size of 10. In the example shown, there are 93 assets, so it will take 10 pages. As with other REST API calls, you can request ?page=N to get a particular page, or ?page_size=N to request a different number of items per page.

      "create_time": "2017-07-15T21:21:48.298000Z",
      "id": 10,
      "message": "Testing asset connectivity for 'carbonblack' using app 'Carbon Black Response' ",
      "status": "success"
    }
  ],
  "num_pages": 10
}

As a convenience, there is a ?pretty parameter you can add that will provide additional _pretty_* values that are more human-readable, and give extra information so that you do not have to take the app and asset IDs and call their APIs to get the names. The following truncated example shows a single asset.

Example request

curl -k -u uname:pwd https://localhost/rest/app_status?pretty -G -X GET

Example response

{
  "count": 93,
  "data": [
    {
      "_pretty_app": "LDAP",
      "_pretty_asset": "domainctrl1",
      "_pretty_create_time": "13 minutes ago",
      "_pretty_icon": "/app_resource/ldap_84110F27-6602-4DC8-A6F2-0311B1720BF8/microsoft_logo.png",
      "app": 104,
      "asset": 4,
      "create_time": "2017-07-17T18:00:05.546000Z",
      "id": 1,
      "message": "Testing asset connectivity for 'domainctrl1' using app 'LDAP' ",
      "status": "success"
    },
...
  ],
  "num_pages": 10
}

Besides the paging and pretty parameters, the other standard query parameters and filters apply. See REST Query Data.
