Hello, I would like to be able to build a powershell script that would allow me to interface with APIs on a server and get the values ​​from prtg.

when I use the query:

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://192.168.168.101/xmlapi/?token=GyeC3sfAMPZojC..." -UsersOutBody \ text-xml Admin \ "-MethodBody \ text \ body \ xml Administrator \" -MethodutB \ body \ $ xmlAdmin \ "-UsersOutBody \ $ xml $ body = @ " <? xml version = "1.0"?> <xml> <object> controllerstaterx </object> <action> select </action> <id> 4 </id> </xml> "@

I have the following result:

<? xml version = "1.0"?> <xml> <result> <type> success </type> <message> </message> <errno> 0 </errno> <id> 4 </id> </result> <data> <bdrf> 65.6 </bdrf> <cn> 25 </cn> <rfl> 56.8 </rfl> <cn_sta_avg> 12.9 </cn_sta_avg> <cn_con_avg> 8.8 </cn_con_avg> <id> 4 </id> <hub_network_id> 1 </hub_network_id> <controller_id> 4 </controller_id> <packets> 0 </packets> <bad_state> 2021-11-19 07:29:10 </bad_state> <good_state> 2021-11-19 10:18:10 </good_state> <updated> 2021-11-19 10:18:05 </updated> <state> 17 </state> <channel> 4 </channel> <frlen> 256 </frlen> <rqsl> 3 </rqsl> <guarq> 3 </guarq> <totrq> 3 </totrq> <rtrq> 0 </rtrq> <upst> 5 </upst> <actst> 3 </actst> <hblow> 5 </hblow> <stlow> 0 </stlow> <rxspd> 10128 </rxspd> <platform> 34 </platform> <hardware> 1466715 </hardware> <hardware_errors> 0 </hardware_errors> <config_errors> 0 </config_errors> <license> 6146 </license> <configurable_profiles> 2147483647 </configurable_profiles> <licensed_profiles> 2147000307 </licensed_profiles> <faults> 0 </faults> </data> </xml>

Hi there,

First of all it depends which information should displayed in PRTG. Since the output is an XML you may work with the cmdlet Select-Xml in your script to filter the data you want to display.
Afterwards PRTG expect following to create channels and display your values:

           <prtg>
           <result>
           <channel>First channel</channel>
           <value>10</value>
           </result>
           <result>
           <channel>Second channel</channel>
           <value>20</value>
           </result>
           </prtg>

Kind regards
