    Orion SWQL Orion.PollNow feature?


      Quick question for you and probably an easyish question but what does this do? (pollnodes) and can i use it through powershell to poll x nodes at anytime?

      also what do the blue icons mean?


      Cheers, Thwacksters

          That blue icon means it is an Indication.   This indications gets fired whenever someone requests an object to be polled from the website.


          The "Orion.Nodes" entity has a PollNow verb that you can call to request the node to be polled.  The verb takes an object identifier in the form of "N:<nodeId>"   Where <nodeId> is the Id of the Node you would like to force a poll on.

              I LIKE EGGS

              agh i see, thank you, this leads me to my next question how do i see the available verbs? i thought the only available verbs were in purple lol

              this is going to answer another question i have lol. i created a PS script to create custom properties using the Orion.NodesCustomProperties CreateCustomProperty which was cool.


              i then created some more custom properties with values using the $swis Orion.NodesCustomProperties CreateCustomPropertyWithValue


              but i cant work out how that worked and where is the verb stored CreateCustomPropertyWithValue where can i find these or am looking in the wrong sub directories?
