    API network discovery stopped working


      Hello everyone,


      We are suddenly experiencing a problem with network discovery via API which stopped working (returns nothing instead of discovery id).It worked fine for the past year or so and we used it a lot. Code sequence is exactly like in the example on github, but I'm posting it just in case. Nothing changed in the code. The only recent change was upgrading Solarwinds to a more recent version.

      Does anyone know how to diagnose this strange issue?


      Thanks a lot!!!
