Overview

Each of the API commands described here relate to listing, creating, editing and deleting tags that have been associated with Probes at your site.


Index

Retrieve an array of all Probe Tag Hashes.

CURL Command, and variations:

curl -su <APIKEY>:U https://api.copperegg.com/v2/revealuptime/tags.json

curl -s https://<APIKEY>:U@api.copperegg.com/v2/revealuptime/tags.json

CURL Response:

Response is a JSON-encoded array of all Probe Tag Hashes.

[
{ "id":"dallas_group", # PROBE_TAG ... is the tag itself. AKA, tag 'id'
"probe_ids":[
"4fefc0b82ca1fc060d000403|atl", # PROBE_ID's
"4fefc0b82ca1fc060d000403|nrk",
"4fefc0b82ca1fc060d000403|MT8twxayLJjGajVVLXYnEEbMNPHmJacq|"
]
},
{ "id":"atlanta_group", # PROBE_TAG ... is the tag itself. AKA, tag 'id'
"probe_ids":[
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|en0|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|en1|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|en2|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|fw0|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|/|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|/Volumes/facter-1.6.10|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|vmnet1|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|disk0|",
"ac1f5ef85c1177ef97596f334f877370|disk1|"
]
}
]

In the example above, two Probe Tag Hashes are returned by the Index command; “dallas_group” and “atlanta_group”. Note that each tag structure contains an ‘id’, which is the tag itself, and an array of “probe_ids”, one for each probe to which the tag is attached.


Show

Required Parameters:

PROBE_TAG as part of the path.

CURL Command, and variations:
