API to Import switches

Hi All,


We have bulk devices to import and want to use HP OO to import the devices.

Could you please suggest API/WSDL for SOM.

Re: API to Import switches

Hello Connection,

SOM has the CLI commands that are available which include the "somdiscoveryconfigexportimport.ovpl" command.

With this command, you can create a CSV file with the list of devices you wish to import and then run the command against this file.  Details about the command and the corresponding CSV file are available within the SOM 10.20 CLI Reference Pages Guide.

SOM 10.20 Reference Pages:

This is the only option currently available to add devices to SOM outside of the UI.

I hope that this helps answer your question.
