REST Note

Note endpoint to consolidate the note information that exists in multiple endpoints.

/rest/note

Create a note associated with a container.

Syntax

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

POST

Create a general note associated with a container.

Request parameters
An argument string must include the following parameters:

Field Required Type Description
container_id required integer ID of the container to add the note to.
note_format optional string Notes are displayed in either HTML or markdown. By default, note_format is set to markdown unless you pass in a different value. When you post an update of a note created before Splunk Phantom version 4.9, if you do not include the note_format as markdown, the note format defaults to HTML to maintain backwards compatibility with older notes.
title required string The title of the note.
note_type required string The type of the note: general.
content required string The content of the note.
attachments optional list of integers A list of the container attachment IDs to add to the note. A maximum of 10 attachments can be added to a note.

Example request
You can create a general note for container Id 93 by supplying a JSON formatted body.

curl -k -u admin:changeme https://localhost/rest/note \
-d '{"container_id": 93,
    "note_format": "markdown",
    "title": "something2",
    "note_type": "general",
    "content": "hello world",
    "attachments": [1, 2, 3]    
}'

Example response
A successful request returns a success indicator and the ID of the newly created note.

   "success": true,

}

POST

Create bulk container notes.

Request parameters
An argument string must include the following parameters:

Field Required Type Description

note_type required string The type of the note: general.
