The EcoStruxure IT Expert API gives users a way to integrate EcoStruxure IT into their own environments. Its functionalities allow users to maintain a local data store or to build applications that react to changes in their critical infrastructure.
Currently the API is an open beta, so it can be subject to changes in its functionality and performance.
The APIs grant access to:
All locations created in EcoStruxure IT
All discovered devices, including the most relevant device properties, relationships to other devices, and locations
All alarms generated by devices or threshold configurations, including information about the alarm’s lifetime and severity, and a reference to the originating device
All device sensors, including unit, label, and a reference to the parent device. Measurements are excluded at this time,
The APIs allow users to:
- Retrieve a snapshot of their "State of the World", retrieving all existing inventory items (devices, sensors and locations) and all active or recently cleared alarms
- Listen to the event stream of alarms or inventory items to follow the changes occurring to an alarm or a device from a given moment forward
The APIs are relevant both for customers who monitor their own environment and Partners who monitor infrastructure environments on behalf of their customers
