Get The Interface ID from the API



How can I get the interface ID from the API?

We use a separate site to show which sensors is running on which switch but there is no (known) way to show the port number by using the table.xml.

One option would be to use the "tag" field of a sensor.

The table.xml would than report this value in the <tags> node.

<name>Cisco Switch 2</name>
<tags>portnumber: 4</tags>
