Downtime - Deleting

There are two ways of deleting downtimes, which is controlled by the only_objects_set parameter:

only_objects_set value Permission to list objects Permission to list all objects Downtime method Filtering parameters Process
0 DOWNTIMESOME ADMINACCESS Delete by object See downtime POST Resolves the objects to services and hosts and deletes all downtimes on the objects. This is useful for deleting downtimes based on objects, for example when automatically spinning down a host. Mirrors the POST request
1 DOWNTIMESOME DOWNTIMESOME Delete by downtime information See downtime GET Does a downtime GET with the specified filtering parameters, iterates over each downtime and deletes each downtime individually for the objects returned. This is useful for deleting based on specific downtimes. Works like the downtime GET request

Note

It is possible for a user to delete downtimes that they did not create, as they can view downtimes at the object level.

Deleting a downtime will occur whether or not the downtime is currently in progress.

The response will be the same format as the creation of downtime.

Additional URL parameters are:

Note

You have to use URL parameters, as DELETE methods do not allow data to be POSTed.

Examples Copied

Set downtime for Host Group “Monitoring Servers” (and all hosts and services within the host group):

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  POST downtime"?hg.hostgroupname=Monitoring+Servers&comment=Decommissioning&starttime=tomorrow+2pm&endtime=tomorrow+4pm"

Delete downtime for Host Group “Monitoring Servers” (will delete all downtimes on all hosts and services):

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  DELETE downtime"?only_objects_set=1&hostgroupname=Monitoring+Servers"

Set downtime for Host opsview:

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  POST downtime"?hst.hostname=opsview&comment=Decommissioning&starttime=2030-12-01+09:00:00&endtime=2030-12-01+11:00:00"

Delete downtime for Host opsview:

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  DELETE downtime"?only_objects_set=1&hostname=opsview"

Set two downtimes for Host opsview, and delete one of them:

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  POST downtime"?hst.hostname=opsview&comment=Downtime1&starttime=2030-12-01+09:00:00&endtime=2030-12-01+11:00:00"
/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  POST downtime"?hst.hostname=opsview&comment=Downtime2&starttime=2030-12-02+09:00:00&endtime=2030-12-02+11:00:00"

# List the downtimes related to comment=Downtime1
/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial --pretty \
  GET downtime"?hostname=opsview&comment=Downtime1"

# Delete these downtimes
/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  DELETE downtime"?only_objects_set=1&hostname=opsview&comment=Downtime1"

Set a downtime for a host, then delete for a service on that host (note that the downtime icon will still be shown in the UI as the host is still scheduled to be in a downtime state):

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial \
  POST downtime"?hst.hostname=opsview&comment=Downtime1&starttime=2030-12-01+09:00:00&endtime=2030-12-01+11:00:00"

/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial --pretty \
  GET downtime"?hs=opsview::CPU+Statistics&comment=Downtime1"
  
/opt/opsview/coreutils/bin/opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial --pretty \
  DELETE downtime"?only_objects_set=1&hs=opsview::CPU+Statistics&comment=Downtime1"
