|h5. Overview |
|In groundwork, downtime submitted only to the Nagios command pipe does not appear in the general Downtime user interface. This page reviews how to submit a host and service downtimes into GroundWork Monitor via the REST API, using the Linux command line, and have it appear in the Configuration > Downtimes screens to validate and audit. This solves the problem of adding all legacy downtimes from an older installation to a new one, and allows you to automate adding downtimes to both a primary parent and any standby servers at the same time, thus keeping them from other tools, or other groups in sync. your organization who don't otherwise need access to GroundWork. |
|We decided to make this functionality available via a shell script, so it should be pretty clear what's going on - just look at the script. It assembles a downtime request and sends it to the API, properly formatted. Suggestions for improvements are of course welcome. |
