NAME

Zenoss::Router::Report - A JSON/ExtDirect interface to operations on reports

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->report_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.
