NAME

Zenoss::Router::Process - A JSON/ExtDirect interface to operations on processes

SYNOPSIS

    use Zenoss;
    my $api = Zenoss->connect(
        {
            username    => 'zenoss username',
            password    => 'zenoss password',
            url         => 'http://zenossinstance:8080',
        }
    );

    # Replace SOMEMETHOD with one of the available methods provided by this module
    my $response = $api->process_SOMEMETHOD(
        {
            parameter1 => 'value',
            parameter2 => 'value',
        }
    );

DESCRIPTION

This module is NOT instantiated directly. To call methods from this module create an instance of Zenoss. This document serves as a resource of available Zenoss API calls to Zenoss.

METHODS

The following is a list of available methods available for interaction with the Zenoss API. Please take note of the argument requirements, defaults and return content.

The documentation for this module was mostly taken from the Zenoss JSON API docs. Keep in mind that their (Zenoss Monitoring System) programming is based around python, so descriptions such as dictionaries will be represented as hashes in Perl.

$obj->process_getTree()

Returns the tree structure of an organizer hierarchy where the root node is the organizer identified by the id parameter.

ARGUMENTS

id (string) - Id of the root node of the tree to be returned

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

id

target

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

N/A

RETURNS

Object representing the tree

$obj->process_moveProcess()

Move a process or organizer from one organizer to another.

ARGUMENTS

uid (string) - UID of the process or organizer to move

targetUid (string) - UID of the organizer to move to

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

uid

targetUid

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

N/A

RETURNS

uid: (dictionary) The new uid for moved process or organizer

$obj->process_getInfo()

Get the properties of a process.

ARGUMENTS

uid (string) - Unique identifier of a process

keys (list) - List of keys to include in the returned dictionary. If None then all keys will be returned

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

uid

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

N/A

RETURNS

data: (dictionary) Object representing a process's properties

$obj->process_setInfo()

Set attributes on a process. This method accepts any keyword argument for the property that you wish to set. The only required property is "uid".

ARGUMENTS

uid (string) - Unique identifier of a process

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

uid

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

N/A

RETURNS

data: (dictionary) Object representing a process's new properties

$obj->process_getInstances()

Get a list of instances for a process UID.

ARGUMENTS

uid (string) - Process UID to get instances of

start (integer) - Offset to return the results from; used in pagination

params (dictionary) - Key-value pair of filters for this search.

limit (integer) - Number of items to return; used in pagination

sort (string) - Key on which to sort the return results

dir (string) - Sort order; can be either 'ASC' or 'DESC'

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

uid

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

{start => 0, limit => 50, sort => 'name', dir => 'ASC'}

RETURNS

data: ([dictionary]) List of objects representing process instances

total: (integer) Total number of instances

$obj->process_getSequence()

Get the current processes sequence.

ARGUMENTS

NONE

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

N/A

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

N/A

RETURNS

data: ([dictionary]) List of objects representing processes in sequence order

$obj->process_setSequence()

Set the current processes sequence.

ARGUMENTS

uids ([string]) - The set of process uid's in the desired sequence

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS

uids

DEFAULT ARGUMENTS

N/A

RETURNS

Success message
