Withdraw of the 6.9.2 Release

Unfortunately, due to critical issues identified with version 6.9.2, we have decided to remove it and ensure it's no longer available for download. These issues impacted the ability to install or upgrade but none were security-related. We are diligently working to resolve these issues and are planning to release an updated version 6.9.3 in early May.

What if you've already upgraded?

For customers who have already upgraded to 6.9.2, no immediate action is required, as none of these issues are security-related. Once it's available, you will still be able to upgrade to 6.9.3 as normal. We appreciate your patience and trust as we continue to enhance our software to better serve you. Thank you for your understanding.


There is process flow for authenticating to Opsview within the Introduction in the Authentication section

Logging in Copied

URL: /rest/login


The opsview_rest command will automatically take care of authentication for you without having to post credentials to the login endpoint.

If a token cannot be generated, a 503 HTTP status code will be returned, with the text, “Error creating session token after 5 attempts”.

Example curl request:

$ curl -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -X 'application/json' -X POST -d '{"username":"admin","password":"initial"}' http://localhost/rest/login

Example response:

    "token": "7cd5652f7bfde4220211d063c166b263160a7d52"

The length of the token is 32 characters.

If you can pass the parameter, include_user_data=1, a user_data field will be returned in the response. This will contain the data from the /rest/user call.

Logging out Copied

URL: /rest/logout

Example opsview_rest request

opsview_rest --username=admin --password=initial --data-format=json --pretty POST logout

Expected response:

   "logout_via" : "REST API"

User information Copied

URL: /rest/user

This returns information about the user.

See include_user_data=1 in the login section above for fetching this information via a curl request when authenticating.

Example opsview_rest request:

$ opsview_rest --token-file /path/to/opsview_restapi_token --pretty GET user

Example response:

    "access_list": {
        "ACTIONALL": 1,
        "ADMINACCESS": 1,
        "VIEWALL": 1,
    "fullname": "Admin user",
    "language": "",
    "name": "admin",
    "realm": "local",
    "role": "Administrator"
["Opsview On-premises"] ["API", "Technical Reference"]
