Retrieving Configurations

This page describes how you can retrieve configuration files from IP Fabric’s configuration management capability to be consumed outside the platform.

Do this in two stages:

  1. Send a POST to /tables/management/configuration with a request body like:

      "columns":["id", "hash", "hostname", "lastChangeAt", "lastCheckAt", "reason", "sn", "status"]

    Of course, you can filter that list (for example, for devices containing L36) with a key:value pair:

    "filters": {
      "hostname": ["like","L36"]

    or you can select the range of dates you are interested in:

    "filters": {
      "lastCheckAt": ["gte",XXXXXXXXXXXXXX]

    where XXXXXXXXXXXXXX is the UNIX epoch time representing the start of the time range.

    This gives you the list of saved configurations, and most importantly, the “hash” for each of them.

  2. Send a GET to /tables/management/configuration/download?hash=XXXXXXXXXXXXX, where XXXXXXXXXXXXX is the hash for the required configuration from the list returned in step 1. This returns the plain text of the configuration in question.
