Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to perform a quick device discovery in CA PM through either the PC REST API or the DA REST API. The intent is to automate device discovery by just feeding the essentials - IP address/Hostname, Port, Community string, and SNMP version (v2c).

Environment

Release : 20.2

Component : IM Discovery

Resolution

Quick discovery is a PC web form only.  There is no API to it.  PC then converts the form to creating a SNMP profile with the creds, and pushing that to DA.  Then creating a discovery profile to use that new profile and IP listed. It would be a ER to add a quick discovery endpoint to PC rest service.
