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 for device sensors.
For everything except measurements, the APIs allow users to:
- Retrieve a snapshot of their "State of the World", retrieving all existing devices, locations, and sensors as well as all active or recently cleared alarms.
- Poll for changes to get the changes that have occurred since the last snapshot or poll.
For measurements, the APIs allow users to:
- Stream live measurements where a connection is kept alive and measurements are sent as they become available from the time at which the connection was established.
- Replay measurements that were missed because of a short period of being disconnected from the live measurement stream.
The APIs are relevant both for customers who monitor their own environment and partners who monitor infrastructure environments on behalf of their customers.
