The Pack uses the old legacy API. You should try to use the Pack Pure Storage FlashArray Rest API v2.

A service account has to be created on the device. This account must have at least a "read only" access to the storage array.


Monitoring Pack​

If the platform uses an online license, you can skip the package installation instruction below as it is not required to have the pack displayed within the Configuration > Plugin Packs > Manager menu. If the platform uses an offline license, install the package on the central server with the command corresponding to the operating system's package manager:

dnf install centreon-pack-hardware-storage-purestorage-flasharray-legacy-restapi

Whatever the license type (online or offline), install the Pure Storage FlashArray Legacy Rest API Pack through the Configuration > Plugin Packs > Manager menu.


Since Centreon 22.04, you can benefit from the 'Automatic plugin installation' feature. When this feature is enabled, you can skip the installation part below.

You still have to manually install the plugin on the poller(s) when:

  • Automatic plugin installation is turned off
  • You want to run a discovery job from a poller that doesn't monitor any resource of this kind yet

More information in the Installing the plugin section.

Use the commands below according to your operating system's package manager:

dnf install centreon-plugin-Hardware-Storage-Purestorage-Flasharray-Legacy-Restapi



  • Log into Centreon and add a new host through Configuration > Hosts.
  • Fill the Name, Alias & IP Address/DNS fields according to your Pure Storage FlashArray server settings.
  • Apply the HW-Storage-Purestorage-Flasharray-Legacy-Restapi-custom template to the host.
  • Once the template is applied, fill in the corresponding macros. Some macros are mandatory.
APIURLPATH(Default: '/api/1.11')
EXTRAOPTIONSAny extra option you may want to add to every command line (eg. a --verbose flag)

How to check in the CLI that the configuration is OK and what are the main options for?​

Once the plugin is installed, log into your Centreon poller's CLI using the centreon-engine user account (su - centreon-engine) and test the plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=storage::purestorage::flasharray::legacy::restapi::plugin \
--mode=volume-usage \
--hostname= \
--api-path='/api/1.11' \
--username='myuser' \
--password='mypass' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: All volumes are ok | ''=327296252612B;;;0;3298534883328 ''=5.436;;;0; ''=8.870;;;0; 'PURE-M50R2-ADM24-CLU04-Oracle-prod1#volume.snapshots.usage.bytes'=1454226866B;;;0; ''=327296252612B;;;0;4298534883328 ''=4.436;;;0; ''=7.870;;;0; 'PURE-M50R2-ADM24-CLU04-Oracle-prod2#volume.snapshots.usage.bytes'=1854226866B;;;0;
Volume 'PURE-M50R2-ADM24-CLU04-Oracle-prod1' usage total: 3.00 TB used: 304.82 GB (9.92%) free: 2.70 TB (90.08%), data reduction: 5.436, total reduction: 8.870, snapshots: 1.35 GB

All available options for a given mode can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=storage::purestorage::flasharray::legacy::restapi::plugin \
--mode=volume-usage \

All available modes can be displayed by adding the --list-mode parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
