API: Get Overall Status of Group



Hi there

I'd love to get an overall status (Up, Warning, Down) of an entire group of sensors via the HTTP API. I would use this output to set the color of one of those Kuando Busylights which doesn't get used anymore. I would get a quick info about the health state of our systems, I only need this simple info via the API. Is it possible?

Regards Patrick

Hi there,

If you're looking for the status of the same sensor type, then you can find the needed information and the API call here.

Kind regards

Sadly, the sensors are a mixed bunch. I basically need the "color output" of the "Name and Status (sizeable, status related background)" or "Traffic Light" Map Item when applied to an entire group of sensors.

Hi Patrick,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to setup your desired API call.

Kind regards.
