 Add the details of API configurations and Make sure API is enabled in API settings for the API script to work.
 
  
 
 
 

An API script is provided for automating server add/edit/delete tasks in Ezeelogin. With the help of this script, you can integrate Ezeelogin with any 3rd party application managing your clients/customers. Also, make sure to  enable API .

 

The API script can be executed as:

 

[email protected]:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php [params...]

For  Help 

[email protected]:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php -help

Usage:

 

ezwapi.php -help <action>

action : API action (add_server/update_server/remove_server)

 

ADD SERVER 

 

[email protected]:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php -help add_server

 Add Server  Example: 

[email protected]:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php add_server -api_url http://10.11.1.137/ezlogin -secret  [email protected]#$!   -name test.noc.com -password test123 -ip_address 10.11.1.138 -group test

Add Server Example where the ssh user is non root

[email protected]:~# /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php add_server -api_url http://192.168.56.106/ezlogin -secret 123#$4  -ssh_user ezeelogin -group linux -ssh_key /root/.ssh/id_rsa -name skunk.ezno.con -ip_address 192.168.56.143 -prompt1 ']$ ' -prompt2 'ssword:' -enable_ssh Y 

 How will i find the prompts for the ssh_user?

The easiest way to find the prompt1 is to ssh as  the user directly into the server. The prompts may vary depending on the remote OS in use. For example, when the remote machines is Centos 5.6,7, the login prompts when a non root user logs in is 

[[email protected] ~]$ cd /home

Here the unique string that remains permanent are "]$ ". Note that there are 3 characters including space.

For Ubuntu 14,16 ,18

[email protected]:~$ cd /home

Here the unique string that remains permanent are the characters "cd:".

To find prompt2, simply run su - as a non root user.

[[email protected] home]$ su -

Password:

The prompt 2  or the unique string that remains permanent would be  "rd:" 

The prompt 3 would be how the root prompt looks like 

[[email protected] home]#

Above the unique characters that is permanent are  "[email protected]" or "[email protected]" etc.

[email protected]:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php  remove_server -api_url http://10.11.1.137/ezlogin -secret  [email protected]#$! -name ez.test.com 

 

  

   Make sure API is enabled in API settings for the API script to work.
 
If you need to execute the API script from a server other than the Ezeelogin installed server(jump server), copy /usr/local/ezlogin/ezwapi.php and /usr/local/ezlogin/apilib file to the server which you want to execute. PHP should be installed on the server.
