A few questions about the API?



  • Hi all,

    So I have a question about the API. I want to create a simplified web front end using the API for our software testers to use so they can create, delete scheduled tasks without worrying about learning the syntax of cron, viewing said scheduled tasks, view active tasks and when a system is added to the host list that host will be added to the web page.
    Would this be possible?

    Well, The cron syntax wouldn’t “disappear” unless your web front end translates the date/schedule to a Cron style system automatically.

    Yes the idea should be possible, though I don’t know how best to help except to help provide basic syntax of the API so you can process and parse the data that’s returned.

    I guess, though, I don’t fully understand the why. Everything (with exception of the scheduled cron tasks) is already available via the GUI we provide as a part of our software. “viewing said Scheduled tasks, view active tasks, and when a system is added to the host list that host will be added to the web page” are already done with the provided interface. Why create a new hen-house when the one you got with the land is also a hen house that does everything you need it to do.
