  1. It had been ages since I had to write a datasource in PowerShell so I haven't stayed up-to-date on the latest bells and whistles available. But I was very surprised to see that instance properties are still not supported. With the substitution engine and enhancements made on the Groovy-side, I would have thought this trivial to implement. Is supporting instance properties on the horizon for PowerShell scripting for Datasources?
  2. I have published a PowerShell module, which refactors part of the REST API, to the PowerShell gallery. Please feel free to make requests (or send me cmdlets you want added).
  3. Hello! I've created a property source (PS script) that will retrieve/populate automatically the 'paloalto.apikey.pass' property within Palo Alto firewalls (since a bunch of datasources require that key). This will be easier than retrieving the api key manually & then create the custom property for each firewall. this will make use of the ssh credentials & also requires a LM apikey in order to actually PATCH the device in question. Sharing this with everyone in case it is useful for you guys as well. I've tried to publish it in LM Exchange but I'm retrieving the error below: I'm new to LM so, excuse me if I'm being noob & missing an obvious thing 😄 Shared the PS script within GitHub -> Feel free to use it & let me know your comments/suggestions/etc... Regards,
  4. Hello, Trying to get the below script to work, but hitting a snag. I've tried to repurpose the DataSource Upload Example script from this page to get the desired result but no dice.

I'm getting HTTP 415 error Unsupported Media Typeh1 which I thought originally was from the $data section but I can't figure out any other way to pass the JSON into the variable. Thanks, Amir.
  5. Hello All, I'm attempting to import datasources into our LogicMonitor instance, using the API and PowerShell. The following documentation only provides a CURL example, which isn't really sufficient for us. Usage: Import-LMDatasource -Credential $credentials -FilePath 'c:\repositories\LogicModules\DataSources\CustomDataSource.xml' I am assuming that you have an array containing your accessId, accessKey and company name, prior to calling the function. The parameter FilePath is the full path to the XML file to be uploaded. function Import-LMDatasource { [CmdletBinding()] param ( [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)] [array]$Credential, [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)] [ValidateNotNullOrEmpty()] [string]$FilePath ) Begin { if(-not($Credential)) { $accessId = Read-Host -Prompt "Please supply accessId:" $accessKey = Read-Host -Prompt "Please supply accessKey:" $company = Read-Host -Prompt "Please supply company:" } else { $accessId = $Credential.accessId $accessKey = $Credential.accessKey $company = $ } $httpVerb = 'POST' $resourcePath = '/setting/datasources' $queryParams = '/importxml' $data = '' $url = 'https://' + $company + '' + $resourcePath + $queryParams $epoch = [Math]::Round((New-TimeSpan -Start (Get-Date -Date '1/1/1970') -End (Get-Date).ToUniversalTime()).TotalMilliseconds) $contentType = [System.Web.MimeMapping]::GetMimeMapping($FilePath) } Process { $requestVars = $httpVerb + $epoch + $data + $resourcePath $hmac = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.HMACSHA256 $hmac.Key = [Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($accessKey) $signatureBytes = $hmac.ComputeHash([Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($requestVars)) $signatureHex = [System.BitConverter]::ToString($signatureBytes) -replace '-' $signature = [System.Convert]::ToBase64String([System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($signatureHex.ToLower())) $auth = 'LMv1 ' + $accessId + ':' + $signature + ':' + $epoch Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Net.Http $httpClientHandler = New-Object System.Net.Http.HttpClientHandler $httpClient = New-Object System.Net.Http.HttpClient $httpClientHandler $httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = $auth $packageFileStream = New-Object System.IO.FileStream @($filePath, [System.IO.FileMode]::Open) $contentDispositionHeaderValue = New-Object System.Net.Http.Headers.ContentDispositionHeaderValue 'form-data' $contentDispositionHeaderValue.Name = 'file' $contentDispositionHeaderValue.FileName = (Split-Path -Path $FilePath -Leaf) $streamContent = New-Object System.Net.Http.StreamContent $packageFileStream $streamContent.Headers.ContentDisposition = $contentDispositionHeaderValue $streamContent.Headers.ContentType = New-Object System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeHeaderValue $contentType $content = New-Object System.Net.Http.MultipartFormDataContent $content.Add($streamContent) $response = $httpClient.PostAsync($url, $content).Result if(!$response.IsSuccessStatusCode) { $responseBody = $response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Reult $errorMessage = "Status code {0}.

I think I'm most of the way there, but obviously something I'm doing is bloating the request size and tripping this limit. Has anyone had any success with uploading datasources via the API? Many Thanks, ~Nick

  8. Windows Server Core and (the free) Hyper-V Server Core are GUI-less versions of Windows that can be administered remotely with GUI tools. We've recently seen an uptick in requests for deployment of the collector to these platforms, as Windows introduces a lot of overhead with the addition of the GUI; the other compelling reason to go this route being that Hyper-V Core is a free license of Windows from Microsoft (similar to the free flavor of ESXi, only it can run a Windows collector!) Microsoft Documentation: Managing a Server Core Server Configure Server Core with the SConfig command Option A: Remote Desktop Install Establish a remote desktop session to the Server Core server using the instructions provided by Microsoft. Within the standard Command shell, type the word "PowerShell" to load a PowerShell session. Add a new (Windows) LogicMonitor Collector in your portal, and select the PowerShell command instead of the download. Paste (and run) the PowerShell command into the open PowerShell windows within the Remote Desktop Session on the Server Core server. You'll see a message indicating that the download has started, and after some time, the normal InstallShield Wizard will launch as expected. Complete the collector account configuration and proceed as you would with an OS with a GUI. Collect on! Additional methods are certainly possible (Windows Admin Center, Remote PowerShell, more?) and as I have a chance to test/ validate, I will continue to update this post.
  9. I am attempting to adjust an escalation chain via PowerShell and REST. I am currently getting back a 1007 and can't seem to figure out what is wrong. Below is what I am using, I have tried different forms of $data. Our main goal is to change CC. We have tried these two and then the 1 in the script below. Just not sure what is coming up wrong. $data = '"ccDestinations":[{"type":"arbitrary","method":"email","addr":""}]' $data = '"destinations":[{"type":"single","stages":[[{"type":"arbitrary","method":"email","addr":""}]]}]' <# Use TLS 1.2 #> [Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12 <# account info #> $accessId = '' $accessKey = '' $company = '' <# request details #> $httpVerb = 'PUT' $resourcePath = '/setting/alert/chains/4' $data = '"name":"Chain 1","ccDestinations":[{"type":"arbitrary","method":"email","addr":""}],"destinations":[{"type":"single","stages":[[{"type":"arbitrary","method":"email","addr":""}]]}]' <# Construct URL #> $url = 'https://' + $company + '' + $resourcePath <# Get current time in milliseconds #> $epoch = [Math]::Round((New-TimeSpan -start (Get-Date -Date "1/1/1970") -end (Get-Date).ToUniversalTime()).TotalMilliseconds) <# Concatenate Request Details #> $requestVars = $httpVerb + $epoch + $data + $resourcePath <# Construct Signature #> $hmac = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.HMACSHA256 $hmac.Key = [Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($accessKey) $signatureBytes = $hmac.ComputeHash([Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($requestVars)) $signatureHex = [System.BitConverter]::ToString($signatureBytes) -replace '-' $signature = [System.Convert]::ToBase64String([System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($signatureHex.ToLower())) <# Construct Headers #> $auth = 'LMv1 ' + $accessId + ':' + $signature + ':' + $epoch $headers = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]" $headers.Add("Authorization",$auth) $headers.Add("Content-Type",'application/json') <# Make Request #> $response = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $url -Method $httpVerb -Body $data -Header $headers <# Print status and body of response #> $status = $response.status $status $body = $ | ConvertTo-Json -Depth 5 $body
  10. WALDXL - Download Speed This datasource will run a PowerShell script that downloads a 10MB file and then figures out the speed in Mbps that it was downloaded. CAUTION: This datasource will download a 10Mb file for every Windows machine specified in the applies to field(default is not applied),every poll(deafult is 20 minutes), depending on your environment this could raise the price for your monthly ISP bill. Specifically if your ISP speeds ramp up when needed. I would recommend applying this to: hasCategory("speed") and isWindows() The of course you just need to add the of speed to any Windows machine you want to monitor Download Speed on.
  11. I have the below code which results in a 401. Any ideas?

  12. I have two sets of code. 1 pulls all 'Services' or Website groups. The other is supposed to just pull the group name and id. The first works, the second doesn't. I am using the base PowerShell script laid out in the documentation. If I remove the ?fields=name,id it works without issue. If I add it back it gives me this error "HTTP Status 401 - Unauthorizedtype Status reportmessage Unauthorizeddescription This request requires HTTP authentication.LogicMonitor Technical Operations". Any help would be awesome. <# request details #> $httpVerb = 'GET' $resourcePath = '/service/groups?fields=name,id' $status = $null $body = $null $response = $null <# Construct URL #> $url = 'https://' + $company + '' + $resourcePath
  13. Hello LogicMonitor Community ! Andrey here from LM's Monitoring Engineer Team. To supplement the suite of scripted LogicModules provided in the LM Support Center, my colleagues and I have created a public GitHub repository with many more examples. Have a look at the LogicMonitor GitHub Repo, where you'll find various recipes for solving common monitoring script problems. Both Groovy and PowerShell examples are included Feel free to comment below with requests and/or suggested improvements. Happy scripting !
  14. Hi All, I am looking for powershell script which it can read a device names from txt file and schedule a SDT. Can some one help on this.
  15. At LM we are issued MacBooks and support gets a few VM's (Windows and Linux) so we can test new features and replicate bugs that customers come to us with. But with taking an interest in Powershell it was getting tiresome remoting into a Windows VM to test a Datasource or API script every time one came in. Then I heard about Microsofts push to release Powershell on GitHub, I tried the alpha build and had great success and with the beta release of 6.0 they refind the install process so I thought it was time to share my experience. Disclamier: This version of Powershell for the Mac DOES NOT include some of the Windows only cmdlets (including Get-WIMObject and Hyper-v's Get-VM) so you may not be able to test those but you can still use intellisense to help write the scripts. The new install process is very easy you just need a terminall session on your MacBook and the latest Mac OSx build of 10.12: 1. We start by installing Homebrew /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL" 2. Now we can install Homebrew-Cask so we can install more packages brew tap caskroom/cask 3. Now for Powershell brew cask install powershell Note: The PowerShell formula for Homebrew includes OpenSSL as a dependency. "On macOS, .NET Core requires Homebrew's OpenSSL because the "OpenSSL" system libraries on macOS are not OpenSSL, as Apple deprecated OpenSSL in favor of their own libraries. This requirement is not a hard requirement for all of PowerShell. However, most networking functions (such as Invoke-WebRequest) do require OpenSSL to work properly." If you would like to install without OpenSSL you will lose some functionality but you can follow the steps here: When new versions of Powershell are released simply update Homebrew and upgrade PowerShell brew update brew reinstall powershell Note: because of this issue in Cask (, you currently have to do a reinstall to upgrade. Now with that out of the way we just need a nice place to look at, debug and run Powershell. So VisualStudio Code works very well for this and you can download the Mac version here Once you have installed this lets open it up and add the Powershell Extension: 1. Open VScode 2. Click the 5th icon on the left side 3. Search for Powershell and Install the one from Microsoft 4. Once installed click the reload button that replaced install so that the extension loads 5. Now you can open a .ps1 script or create your own! Feel free to add other scripting languages as well from the massive list of extensions that they haveNow if (for some crazy reason) you need to uninstall Powershell, Homebrew makes that easy as well brew cask uninstall powershell Now go have fun and write some cool API or Datasource scripts to share!
  16. What is the PowerShell to Update or Delete the SDT? I am able to get the SDT ID to delete or update.
  17. In case some of you are not aware, Microsoft released Linux-compatible version of PowerShell. I would love to see the Linux Collector come bundled with PowerShell so it can be supported natively. Just for giggles, I installed PowerShell on a random RHEL 7 collector and tried to use the !posh debug command, but sadly it didn't work .
  18. We sometimes see datasource scripts with passwords in the body of their script. For testing this is fine, but in production datasource scripts, passwords in plain view isn’t just bad, it should be a cardinal sin. You can use Powershell to secure a password by creating a PSCredential object that uses the cmdlet Get-Credential and stores the output into a file. Note that it saves as a System.Security.SecureString. Now you can use the file in your script: $hostname= "##HOSTNAME##" $pass= Get-Content "\\Encryptedfile.txt" $user= "##PS.USER##" $password1= ConvertTo-SecureString -String $pass When your script is finished just run it in powershell GUI to check it works fine. Make sure you alter our tokens to the correct values. We had a recent case that when the collector tries to run the datasource script it failed. The below error was in the logs. New-PSSession : [PROD-TP-DB01] Connecting to remote server HOST failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot process the request. The following error with errorcode 0x8009030e occurred while using Negotiate authentication: A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated. Possible causes are: -The user name or password specified are invalid. -Kerberos is used when no authentication method and no user name are specified. -Kerberos accepts domain user names, but not local user names. -The Service Principal Name (SPN) for the remote computer name and port does not exist. -The client and remote computers are in different domains and there is no trust between the two domains. The script is failing with an authentication error. Even though it works fine in the Powershell GUI. The reason for this was the account the collector ran under. PowerShell uses the Windows Data Protection API (DPAPI) to encrypt/decrypt your strings. That means if you created the file using one user account only the same user account on the same computer will be able to use this encrypted string. So the collector account cannot read the file Encryptedfile.txt. We proved this by running the Powershell GUI under the same account your collector uses. So make sure that you create the file using the same account. Keep in mind that if you change the collector account, the script will fail. It is possible that you can encrypt the file using a machine key, which means any user on the collector can use the file and decrypt it, but that’s for another post!
  19. Hi everyone, I'm trying to get some results off a Simplivity system using power shell and json. I have the powershelgl working as I would expect, but I can't get the results to show up in LogicMonitor.
