I’m trying to use the queryAlerts REST API to get CRITICAL, active alerts for HOSTSYSTEMS and DATASTORES. Initial testing of this method looked promising, however now I only receive successful results when my query results in no alerts. When I confirm that an an alert exists in the dashboard, I use the api to get it’s resourceId and translate the date into their required UNIX EPOCH MS and submit a pretty simple request. However, I’ve either received 400 Bad Request or my request times out. Even if i set the HTTP timeout value to >300 seconds and/or set the pageSize value to <5
Many times the status code 400 errors are JSON syntax errors but I believe I’ve gotten all of those, however, a few times I can trace a timeout to a syntax error too, was that a coincidence or is that also a realistic result? If so, does VROPs use a stricter JSON parser than https://jsonlint.com/?
I’ve tried pretty simple queries, and the docs say everything is optional:
“compositeOperator “: “AND “,
Is there a administrator log that could shed some light on this issue?
Does the VROPS api have default rate limits? If so where are they configured?
