Disclaimer: I’ve never really utilized API keys for data requests until now.
My API Use Case: Collect all server OS details including policies, users, and groups.
This is a great tool if you want detailed data from your Automox environment!
After reviewing the API Documentation for Automox I learned the types of API commands I could run and quickly realized I needed a way easily understand what’s in a .json file and how to read it.
I haven’t work with a .json file before, but after some research I found Postman which allowed me to run API requests from and easily download a .json - which ended up converting to an excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is so well organized and now I can easily vlookup what I need on a smaller separate work task.
It was an interesting first experience using an API key and Get requests but I felt it was successful in collecting everything I needed. I’m sure others could do this type of work in their sleep but it’s another wrench in the toolbox for me.
Anyone else want to share their thoughts and experiences using the API?
