I'm Wanting to create Hornbill tickets using Linux OS with Curl also by using the Python programming language to access the API.


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a way to perform the below tasks within science logic's Monitoring, I'm thinking of firing off Basic Curl commands from within the Linux OS ssh shell or using Python programming language.

First I wonder if anyone could shed light on how to achieve this from the Linux OS using Curl 

a, raise a hornbill ticket
b, enquire what the ticket reference number is
c, update that ticket
d, close that ticket.

 

Second I'd be interested if anyone can shed light on achieving this in Phyton as well. 

Also our API is called https://api.hornbill.com/ , so when running this, we will not be logged in, so authentication will be needed and perhaps should be given within the curl statements.

 

Kind Regards

Easiest way for CURL is to use the API Key (create one against your account or create a BOT account and use the following

 


$KEY="APIKEY"

curl -v -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xmlmc;charset=utf-8" -H "Authorization: ESP-APIKEY $KEY" --data-binary @/home/keiths/xml.xml https:/mdh-p01-api.hornbill.com/INSTANCEID/xmlmc/

then in xml.xml you create the XML to do whatever you want (From the API documented in your post) 

So for example


<methodCall service="data" method="sqlQuery">
<params>
<query>Select h_pk_reference from h_itsm_requests</query>
</params>
</methodCall>

HI, Keith, thank you for your reply, its these 4 tasks that I wish to have examples on below as trying to traverse the https://api.hornbill.com/ and find the bits that are relevant is like reading a bible to find a paragraph, you would not actually have examples for each of the below would you, I would imagine they are commonly asked for or used as these are the things most people require to do.

a, raise a hornbill ticket
b, enquire what the ticket reference number is
c, update that ticket
d, close that ticket.

If you have an example of each that would be exactly what I need as my issue is understanding out of all the documentation what I really do actually need.

 

Kind Regards

HI Steve, thank you for your reply,

I too already have the links that you have posted but for me its not showing you what you need to do for any of my requested examples.

If you can give me Python code examples for each of the below would be useful.

a, raise a hornbill ticket
b, enquire what the ticket reference number is
c, update that ticket
d, close that ticket.

 

Kind Regards

Hi Keith, If you could help with what could be the issue below please. 

 

Kind Regards

 

Kevin

  

Our Instance is

https://live.hornbill.com/pasm/servicemanager/requests/

So I understand the "INSTANCEID" to be "pasm".

 

XML file is

cat xml.xml
<methodCall service="data" method="sqlQuery">
        <params>
                <query>Select h_pk_reference from h_itsm_requests where h_pk_reference = "IN00099935"</query>
        </params>
</methodCall>

 

Location of XML file is

pwd
/home/kevinal
kevinal@DV00393:~$ ls -l
total 42508
-rw-r--r-- 1 kevinal kevinal      177 Jan 24 09:41 xml.xml

 

Curl Call Is

Can you please check that we have resolved "INSTANCEID" correctly

 

curl -v -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xmlmc;charset=utf-8" -H "Authorization: ESP-APIKEY $KEY" --data-binary @/home/kevinal/xml.xml https:/api.hornbill.com/pasm/xmlmc/

@Kevin Allitt

I missed a bit in the instructions. Add data to the end of the URL. 

curl -v -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xmlmc;charset=utf-8" -H "Authorization: ESP-APIKEY $KEY" --data-binary @/home/kevinal/xml.xml https:/api.hornbill.com/pasm/xmlmc/data/

This service (ie data) is the first level of the below - https://mdh-p01-api.hornbill.com/pasm/xmlmc/ in which the API you are calling resides and matches the one in the XML 

Kind Regards

Hi Keith my output was as so :-

Is there something else missing ?

curl -v -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xmlmc;charset=utf-8" -H "Authorization: ESP-APIKEY $KEY" --data-binary @/home/kevinal/xml.xml https:/api.hornbill.c
om/pasm/xmlmc/data/

I think the problem is I commented without having enough coffee


curl -v -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xmlmc;charset=utf-8" -H "Authorization: ESP-APIKEY $KEY" --data-binary @/home/kevinal/xml.xml https:/mdh-p01-api.hornbill.com/pasm/xmlmc/data/ 

Should work

should I be using mdh-p01-api.hornbill.com or api.hornbill.com    in the https:/ and should it be / or // 

either/or none of them are showing that they worked.

 

cat xml.xml
<methodCall service="data" method="sqlQuery">
        <params>
                <query>Select h_pk_reference from h_itsm_requests</query>

From the above 

curl -v -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xmlmc;charset=utf-8" -H "Authorization: ESP-APIKEY $KEY" --data-binary @/home/kevinal/xml.xml https://mdh-p01-api.hornbill.com/pasm/xmlmc/data/  

Executed the API correctly , however something (Usually rights ) prevented it. You will need to check the Logs (EspApiTransaction) at the time of running to see what the "reason" was

Kind Regards

Logs (EspApiTransaction) ?

18111826/01/2022 15:28:43error17644   0.036985s [ERROR]:[DATABASE] The maximum number of rows allowed (25000) has been exceeded, query aborted
   0.037519s [ERROR]:[PROFILE] data::sqlQuery() Method call results: failure (242262016 B, 35 ms, -20 kB, 0 ms, 0 kB)

 

So this looks promising as it shows the API is receiving a query and its an SQL issue.

What would be a really good query to send for testing ?

I basically dont know anything about its database.

Is there a doc showing its database Layout, I guess I should be able to Insert,  Delete and Update tables with this method.

Are there any restraint rules and triggers that populate tables when others are added to etc.

If I want to create a ticket, what would the Query be and on which tables ?

The XML for SQL QUery was just an example of how to connect and send an XMLMC request. For logging calls et you will need to use the APIs under ServiceManager such as logServiceRequest (and create the XML based on whats required there ) .. The methods and expected params etc are listed in the below documentation.

So Now we have access to the Database, how do you go about in SQL :-

Creating a New Ticket

Finding out what the New Ticket Number Is

Updating that ticket

Closing that ticket.

 

Thank you for the above help on the API and gaining access we are nearly there in concept. :)

@Kevin AllittAs above you need to use the Service Manager APIs not the Data SQL query (That was just so you can see using API and getting data) . Its the same concept (send XML parse the result) but different API..

https://api.hornbill.com/apps/com.hornbill.servicemanager/Requests?op=logRequest


etc


https://api.hornbill.com/apps/com.hornbill.servicemanager/


A good way is to mimic what the web browser does,.. In Chrome hit F12, log a call and watch the APIs being created.. 

Kind Regards

  • 2 weeks later...

Tried it The Steve G's way,

Downloaded https://github.com/hornbill/pythonApiLib

Copied the 

exception.py and the xmlmc.py into the current code folder, you can put it in the python pathed modules folder as well.

I wrote the code below, called it all.py and ran python all.py and this created a ticket, outputted the ticket number and then updated it and then closed the ticket.

So if anyone out there is stuck and struggling to work this out, this works and should work for you without having to fall down all the rabbit holes I did, and learnt a whole new set of things that are not related, if your question is how do you do it and can you have an example, then your answer is below.

Remember to place your own API key and instance name in the places pointed out by X's

#!/usr/bin/env python2
from xmlmc import XmlmcService
from xmlmc import XmlmcHelper
import sys
import subprocess

#
# Initiate XmlmcService instance
#
xmlmc = XmlmcService("XXXX Your Instance Name XXXX")
#
# With API key (Recommended)
#
xmlmc.set_api_key("XXXXXX YourKey XXXXXX")

# Get session info
# Create The Ticket

xmlmc.add_param("summary", "Test ScienceLogic summary Test")
xmlmc.add_param("description", "Test ScineceLogic Test")
xmlmc.add_param("requestType", "Incident")                   # you can change this to what ever type you  have
xmlmc.add_param("serviceId", "15")                                  # you need to put your own serviceid in here
xmlmc.add_param("catalogId", "39")                                 # you need to put your own catalogid in here

json_string = xmlmc.invoke("apps/com.hornbill.servicemanager/Requests", "logRequest")

if XmlmcHelper.is_call_success(json_string):
    requestId = XmlmcHelper.get_param_value(json_string, "params/requestId")
    print(requestId)
else:
    print(XmlmcHelper.get_error_message(json_string))

# Now Update

xmlmc.add_param("requestId", requestId)
