Get Agents by Type for One Project

Get all agents of a specified type (i.e. Monitoring, Backup, or Automation) for a project.


Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {PROJECT-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

Base URL: https://{OPSMANAGER-HOST}:{PORT}/api/public/v1.0


GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/agents/{TYPE}

Request Path Parameters

Name Type Description
PROJECT-ID string Unique identifier of the project that owns the Agent API Key.
TYPE string

The agent type to retrieve. TYPE can be one of the following values:


Request Query Parameters

The following query parameters are optional:

Name Type Necessity Description Default
pageNum number Optional One-based integer that returns a subsection of results. 1
itemsPerPage number Optional Number of items to return per page, up to a maximum of 500. 100
pretty boolean Optional Flag that indicates whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format. false
envelope boolean Optional

Flag that indicates whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope : true in the query.

For endpoints that return a list of results, the results object is an envelope. Ops Manager adds the status field to the response body.


Request Body Parameters

This endpoint doesn’t use HTTP request body parameters.


Name Type Description
typeName string The type of agent: MONITORING, BACKUP, or AUTOMATION.
hostname string Primary hostname. A host typically may have aliases, so the primary is the best available name as decided by Ops Manager.

The current state of the agent. stateName can return the following values:

  • ACTIVE: the agent is active and operating
  • STANDBY: the agent is on standby
  • NO_PROCESSES: the agent is not managing, monitoring, or backing up any processes.
pingCount number Only applicable to Monitoring Agents. The number of pings that the Monitoring Agent has sent to the hostname URL.
