Downtime - Listing

By default, all downtimes will be listed. You can filter this list based on the same parameters for Filtering Service Objects.


If you use the “object type specific parameters” within the Creating Downtime section, you will get a 400 error as those parameters are not used when listing.

There is a limitation where if you filter by service name, then it will return hosts as well as services of that service name. Use the hs=hostname::servicename parameter instead to locate a specific service on a host.

Paging Copied

You can specify the following URL parameters to use paging:

Due to the SQL joins that are used and the way that the result comes back in a nested fashion, it is possible to list a downtime that misses out the related host/service objects. If you need the precise list of objects based on the downtimes, the best thing to do is search by the downtime filters (comment, start_time, end_time) and set rows=0. This should always return the correct number of objects for the particular downtime.

                "services": [{
                    "id": ...., "hostname": ...., "servicename": ....

The list is ordered by scheduled start time, scheduled end time, comment data, author name.

By default, datetime values are returned as epoch seconds. If you want to have a datetime string, add the URL parameter format_datetime=1.
