Log Insight 4.3: Supported Upgrade and VIDM APIs

Log Insight 4.3 introduces some more supported APIs. In this post, I would like to cover what they are and how they work. Read on to learn more!

Upgrade API

First up, we have the upgrade API. This API is made up of four calls:

  • /upgrades
  • /upgrades/local
  • /upgrades/{version}
  • /upgrades/{version}/eula

In order to perform an upgrade, you need to post the PAK file on a web server accessible by LI. Once this is done, you can call the /upgrades API by passing the pakUrl. Once this is completed, you need to call the /upgrades/{version}/eula PUT method to accept the EULA. That’s it! You can of course check the status of the upgrade by using /upgrades/{version} call. See the official API documentation for more information.

VIDM API

In addition to adding official support for VIDM integration, the VIDM API is also supported. This API is made up of three calls:

  • /vidm
  • /vidm/test
  • /vidm/status

As the names imply, you can use /vidm to get or set VIDM configuration, you can use /vidm/test to test the VIDM configuration, and you can use /vidm/status to get the current status of the VIDM configuration. See the official API documentation for more information.
