LI API

My customer (DaVita) is looking for a way to query LI, check when the last time it received logs from connected ESXi hosts, and if the time is greater than x, automate the restart of syslog on the host.

Perform API Queries using Extracted Fields

When using the API to perform a query, we are unable to use extracted fields are constraints when defining the query.

 

NOTE: Although the query returns extracted fields, it does not accept extracted fields.

Execute persisted query via API

Queries can be defined in the Log Insight UI in many places, such as Dashboards or Saved Queries or Alerts or even the Share shorturl. It is difficult to translate these queries to the format necessary for the Query API.

 

Provide an API to execute a pre-existing UI-authored Query by its persistent name/id.

Execute named query (dashboards, saved search, etc) via query API

Log Insight's Query API allows the expression of an arbitrary query directly. But Log Insight's UI also allows authorship of queries -- alerts, dashboards, saved queries and even share urls all fundamentally refer to a query Log Insight knows about.

 

Expose a query API endpoint which performs a query based on the name/id of a specific saved construct, without the API client needing to recreate the underlying query.
