Common use cases for utilizing Web Service API of API of ESM
Speaker: Fei Gao, HP
ESM exposes certain functionality through a set of web service interfaces. Users can develop their own client applications that access the ESM system through these interfaces, integrating ESM capabilities into its own application without requiring ESM client application. We will present a web service workflow of common use cases including: user authentication; search resources information; request ESM to generate SQL for a specific query with given parameters; request ESM to generate result data for specified query viewer; retrieve drilldown definition for query viewer or data monitor; retrieve result data for the drilldown to query viewer; and request ESM to generate report and let client download the report.
