When trying to change values in an SNMP profile located on the Data Aggregator,  through a REST client, using a PUT call such as the following:


Body of the PUT request:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<CommunicationProfile version="1.0.0"
<CommunicationFailurePolicy version="1.0.0"
<Timeout>timeout in sec (e.g.:3000)</Timeout> 
<Retries>Number of retries (e.g.:4)</Retries> 

An Status Code: 403 Forbidden error occurs.


The SNMP profile is tied to a tenant other than the default tenant you are trying to modify, so the operation isn't supported (for this tenant ID). Hence, the appropriate TenantID to which the profile is attached must be specified as well as the ProfileID in the REST call


CAPM 3.x


For the REST PUT call, the URL should be of the format:  


Where TENANTITEMID and PROFILEID are the respective ID values for the tenant and the profile to which it is attached. Get TENANTITEMID using: 



And find the ID of the tenant the SNMP profile is in.
