Does anyone have a real world example of using the API?
I am trying to learn how to use the KACE API, but the given documentation is scanty, at best. Has anyone used the API successfully? I am trying to use Postman to test the API. Any help would be most appreciated.
What version of the SMA?
What programming language are you familiar with and plan to use to make the API calls?
There are examples available in previous posts, you may want to search to see if a previous post contains an example in the programming language you plan to use.
What do you want to accomplish with the API?
Not sure what programming language I will end up using. Right now I am more concerned about successfully executing a call to the API. To do this I am using the Postman application.
Hardware Model: Virtual (VMware/Hyper-V/Nutanix)
In the end I hope to create a parent ticket and then various child tickets.
Postman can be used to test the API on 12.1.
The API has been available since at least SMA version 9.0 and has been successfully used by customers.
You start with the login API call in postman. Make sure to have enabled API for the SMA and the user on the SMA.
Once you have successfully logged in, you may make other API calls.
POST <Your SMA IP or hostname>/ams/shared/api/security/login
// Add headers in postman
// Body content in postman using your credentials
