Issue/Introduction

We need to get the Data Aggregator Item ID of a newly discovered device.

After 45 minutes, we don't see the device in OpenAPI

How do we get this information?

Environment

Release : 20.2, 21.2

Component :

Resolution

The OpenAPI ETL processing job runs once an hour so you wouldn't see the device for up to 1 hour after discovery depending on when it is discovered in relation to the OData ETL processing.

You could use:

A tunneled get request to the Data Aggregator  Rest API or the Data Source API:

The Data sources web service in the Netops Portal:
