Maltem Insight Rest API

Overview​

Maltem Insight Performance (MIP) provides solutions to measure performance of web applications and thick clients through custom scenarios. It provides an API to gather metrics and status associated to the end-user experience from various locations.

How it works​

The MIP instance exposes a JSON based RestAPI. Centreon connector uses this endpoint to fetch relevant data about Digital Experience Monitoring Scenarios

Compatibility​

The connector has been tested with MIP v 6.4.90 and its API.

MIP​

To be able to get data from MIP API, you must have a valid API key. Contact MIP support or sales representative to get one.
