We are trying to create a “Central Dashboard for Capacity” related reports for my customer so that whenever needed one can login to this Tool and generate a report.
To generate those reports in our Tool, our Tool needs to further integrated with Solarwinds to get the Capacity and Performance related data. And API (Web services) is the only protocol that our Tool support.
We need your help to understand whether Solarwinds support API so that we can explore further to get the Capacity and Performance related data from Solarwinds.
Also, how we can enable API Integration.
Have you looked at REST · solarwinds/OrionSDK Wiki · GitHub? Capacity and performance data is available through SWQL queries, which can be run through the REST API. Your tool will need to support basic authentication and give you a way to deal with the self-signed certificate used by Orion on the API port (17778).
