Retrieving applications -- synthetic API

The GET method of the applications  API retrieves the details of one application or all applications.

Before you begin

You must obtain an authToken by using the login API. The token authenticates the user performing the operation. For details, see  TSWS authentication .

To retrieve one application or all applications

The applications  API uses the GET method to retrieve applications. Use the following request syntax:

For retrieving a single application

https://<PresentationServerHostName>/tsws/10.0/api/appvis/synthetic/api/applications/getById?applicationId=<AID>
 

For retrieving all applications

https://<PresentationServerHostName>/tsws/10.0/api/appvis/synthetic/api/applications/getAll?isSynthetic=<SynStatus>

In the above examples:

  • <PresentationServerHostName>  indicates the host name of the TrueSight Presentation Server.
  • <AID> indicates the ID of the application on the Presentation Server (not the synthetic application ID).
  • <SynStatus> indicates the synthetic status of the application. SynStatus can be the following:
    • blank - all applications on the tenant
    • TRUE - only applications that have synthetic monitoring set to ON
    • FALSE - only applications that have syhtetic monitoring set to OFF

Sample request with REST client

After accessing the REST client, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the URL for the API.
    An example of a request for a single Application is:
    https://localhost/tsws/10.0/api/appvis/synthetic/api/applications/getById?applicationId=112
  2. Add a new header row and select Authorization as the header type.

  3. Enter the text authToken followed by the authToken generated through the login API. 
  4. Click Send.
