Host not showing up using API

Postby zipart » Sat Jan 28, 2023 7:43 pm


I'm trying to add host through the API, the response message is correct but it doesn't seem to be created on NagiosXI

Version : 5.7.5

Step :

curl -XPOST "http://nagiosxiproduction/nagiosxi/api/v1/config/host?apikey=APIKEY&pretty=1" -d "host_name=testapihost&address=\!3000,80%\!5000,100%&max_check_attempts=2&check_period=24x7&contacts=nagiosadmin&notification_interval=5&notification_period=24x7&applyconfig=1"

response: "success": "Added testapihost to the system. Config applied, Nagios Core was restarted."

But when i search the host"testapihost" in nagiosXI, it doesn't exist, and the system wasnt restarted.

I've tested the same step on a NagiosXI lab without any configuration, version 5.9.2 and it worked.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Chances are the feature has problems in that version. The simple solution is to upgrade to the latest XI.
Think about searching the internet about your question. It will give you a million possibilities in the blink of an eye.
