  1. Hi, I am trying to use the LogicMonitor REST API get a list of allof the devices in a given device group, including all devices in all sub groups below in the hierarchy. I have tried using the /device/groups/{id}/devices API but it just seems to return the devices in that immediate device group. This behaviour seems contrary to the /device/groups/{id}/alerts and /device/groups/{id}/sdts methods which do work with any sub groups below. This was previously possible via the getHosts RPC API method. I believe it is still possible but we are looking to migrate away from the RPC API. Can someone please advise on a solution for this issue?
  2. We have up to 500 devices that need to be added to a LM device group via the API - is it possible to do this in bulk, with a single API call, or do we need to make an API call per device to set the group? We'll also need to be able to remove multiple devices in future, so the same question applies for removal. I was hoping there may be a public 'Devices' property available on a device group, that would allow us to 'PUT' a device list to add/remove members, but I'm not able to find anything so far in the documentation. Thanks in advance, Sean
  3. One of the biggest frustrations for us with LogicMonitor is breaking a bunch of dashboards and alerts if we move device groups to another location in the overall device group tree. For example: Say we have a nested device group called "Infrastructure/Hosts". Now our environment has changed a bit, and we want to add better organization to support the new changes to our environment. We move the hosts group to the following location "Infrastructure/PhysicalDevices/Hosts". All alert rules and dashboards that were filtering on "Infrastructure/Hosts" have now been broken, even though the devices in the group need the same alerting and dashboards. Now we have to go through and fix each Alert Rule and Dashboard Widget that used "Infrastructure/Hosts" to now point to "Infrastructure/PhysicalDevices/Hosts". As you can imagine, as environments scale up and evolve, subgroups are going to be moved around all the time. Redoing dashboards and alerts every time this happens adds a tremendous amount of labor, and can lead to people missing changes, leaving behind broken alerts or dashboards that you may not find out about until an emergency has already happened. What we're proposing: "Sticky" device group handling - If a group or subgroup used in an Alert Rule or Dashboard changes location, this location should automatically be updated and reflected in the dashboard. This is how most modern applications handle this sort of thing anyway, and it's a huge time saver. Given the critical nature of this tool's function, this would go along way towards preventing accidentally breaking monitoring that companies rely on to keep their environments running.
  4. I want an option to delete all device from a group. Currently the only way I can see is to delete the device group and re-create the device group but this means having to re-configure the custom properties etc.
