    1. How can we get the list of attributes that a given monitor instance has ?

      I can't see a way to do this via the API, and I have to refer to the documentation on the BMC site to get this which seems a bit backward when everything else is available in the API.

      1. Trevor Morgan, Thanks for your comments. I am forwarding your request to the product development teams.
