Command Line API (v1) - CLAPI

Overview​

Centreon CLAPI aims to offer (almost) all the features that are available on the user interface in terms of configuration.

Features​

  • Add/Delete/Update objects such as hosts, services, host templates, host groups, contacts etc...
  • Generate configuration files
  • Test configuration files
  • Move configuration files to monitoring pollers
  • Restart monitoring pollers
  • Import and export objects

Basic usage​

All actions in Centreon CLAPI will require authentication, so your commands will always start like this:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' [...]

Obviously, the -u option is for the username and the -p option is for the password. The password can be in clear or the encrypted in the database.

NOTE: If your passwords are encoded with SHA1 in database (MD5 by default), use the -s option:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -s [...]

Objects​

ACL​

Object name: ACL

Reload​

In order to reload ACL, use the RELOAD command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -o ACL -a reload

Lastreload​

In order to check when the ACL was last reloaded, use the LASTRELOAD command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -o ACL -a lastreload
1329833702

If you wish to get a human readable time format instead of a timestamp, use the following command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -o ACL -a lastreload -v "d-m-Y H:i:s"

Move monitoring engine configuration files​

In order to move configuration files for poller "Local Poller" of id 1 to the final engine directory, use the CFGMOVE command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a CFGMOVE -v 2
OK: All configuration will be send to 'Remote Poller' by centcore in several minutes.
Return code end : 1

You can move the configuration files using the poller name:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a CFGMOVE -v "Remote Poller"
OK: All configuration will be send to 'Remote Poller' by centcore in several minutes.
Return code end : 1

Restart monitoring engine of a poller​

In order to restart the monitoring process on poller "Local Poller" of id 1, use the the POLLERRESTART command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a POLLERRESTART -v 2
OK: A restart signal has been sent to 'Remote Poller'
Return code end : 1

You can restart the poller using its name:

centreon -u Remote Poller -p 'centreon' -a POLLERRESTART -v "Remote Poller"
OK: A restart signal has been sent to 'Remote Poller'
Return code end : 1

All in one command​

Use the APPLYCFG command in order to execute all of the above with one single command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a APPLYCFG -v 1

You can execute using the poller name:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a APPLYCFG -v "Remote Poller"

This will execute POLLERGENERATE, POLLERTEST, CFGMOVE and POLLERRELOAD.

Reload monitoring engine of a poller​

In order to reload the monitoring process on poller "Remote Poller" of id 2, use the POLLERRELOAD command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a POLLERRELOAD -v 2
OK: A reload signal has been sent to Remote Pollerpoller'
Return code end : 1

You can reload poller using its name:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a POLLERRELOAD -v "Remote Poller"
OK: A reload signal has been sent to 'Remote Poller'
Return code end : 1

Execute post generation commands of a poller​

In order to execute post generation commands of a poller, use the POLLEREXECCMD command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a POLLEREXECCMD -v 2
Running configuration check...done.
Reloading nagios configuration...done

You can execute post generation commands of a poller using its name:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -a POLLEREXECCMD -v "Remote Poller"
Running configuration check...done.
Reloading nagios configuration...done

Import/Export​

Export​

At some point, you might need to export all of the object configuration parameters into a plain text file, either for synchronizing or backuping purpose.

The following items will not be exported:

  • Escalation
  • ACL (ACL Groups, ACL Resources, ACL actions)
  • LDAP settings
  • Global Centreon settings

This export feature is ran like this:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -e > /tmp/clapi-export.txt

This will generate CLAPI commands and redirect them to the /tmp/clapi-export.txt file.

This file can now be read by the import command.

With this, you can also build your own CLAPI command file if you know the straight forward syntax.

For instance:

HOST;ADD;Host-Test1;Test host;127.0.0.1;generic-host;Local Poller;Linux
HOST;ADD;Host-Test2;Test host;127.0.0.1;generic-host;Local Poller;Linux
HOST;ADD;Host-Test3;Test host;127.0.0.1;generic-host;Local Poller;Linux
HOST;ADD;Host-Test4;Test host;127.0.0.1;generic-host;Local Poller;Linux
HOST;ADD;Host-Test5;Test host;127.0.0.1;generic-host;Local Poller;Linux

Export of a subset of objects​

You can choose to export only predefined hosts or services.

For example, to export all services linked to "srv-mssql-01" host you have to execute following command:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -e --select='HOST;srv-mssql-01' --filter-type='^(HOST|SERVICE)$'

To export "memory" and "mssql-listener" services execute following command:

centreon -e --select='SERVICE;memory' --select='SERVICE;mssql-listener' --filter-type='^SERVICE$'

To export all commands run:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -o CMD -a show | awk -F\; 'NR > 2 { print "--select=\"CMD;" $2 "\"" }' | xargs --verbose php ./centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -e

Import​

You can import configuration from the exported file /tmp/clapi-export:

centreon -u admin -p 'centreon' -i /tmp/clapi-export.txt

In case you have a very large export file, it is advised to redirect the output of the above command to a file.
