AppSense Management Server Web Services API Overview
In my last few posts we have looked at Environment Manager (EM) Configuration scripting, now I would like to show you how the Management Server API’s work and how you can apply them to a real-world scenario.
Anyone who has looked into the Web Services API guide will find that it is particularly well documented in terms of examples provided. So as not to bore anyone by simply churning the same information out again, I have created a script on this occasion which goes beyond what the documented examples provide. Throughout this blog I will step you through each command and function so it provides more of a real-world feel.
Before I go on, I should explain that the API set is based upon SOAP requests issued to numerous AMC Web Services. The methods or functions have been nicely abstracted into a module so they can be easily consumed without having to issue the SOAP requests directly to the server, although I should explain this can still be achieved for those of you who are so inclined. This means if anyone who has been following my articles around API usage, this set is accessed very differently to say the EM Configuration set for example.
