CommandSets

What are CommandSets?

Many items in Gateway2 have commands associated with them. These allow for a myriad of actions to be performed, from accepting FKM triggers or SNMP traps to snoozing problematic items.

The first step in using commands with the Open Access API is to find out what commands are available on a given item.

In this example, we will find out what commands are available on our gateway. In the Active Console, you would right click on the Gateway icon as below:

../../ImportedGeneosImages/list_commands.png

The equivalent operation in the API is to submit a CommandSetQuery, passing in the XPath identifying the gateway:

This example will list all the commands it is possible to execute on gateways.

Note: If you are not seeing any commands or some are missing, see the advice in No commands are being returned from the API. How can I debug this?.

The code is included with the open access client which you can get from the Downloads Page.

CommandSet Example

The CommandSet returned contains all the commands that can be executed against the gateway itself. Different commands will be available against entities, views and other data items.

You should see output similar to below:

Each Command has a unique name, a description of what action it performs and any arguments that must be passed when executing the command.

Note: Passing in an xpath that does not specify a particular gateway will result in multiple events being received, one from each node in the cluster.

The CommandSet passed to the callback will contain the merged contents of each event received so far.
