A few months back, I blogged about Log Insight GET configuration APIs. At the time, my goal was to provide a set of BASH functions that could be used to call Log Insight APIs and also to provide some minimum documentation on the Tech Preview configuration APIs in Log Insight 3.6. For one of my vBrownBag sessions at VMworld, I updated these functions and included some POST configuration APIs as well. Read on to learn more!

In my last post, I covered the new query API available in Log Insight 3.3. If you read the post then you can see there is a lot of information and while some examples were provided, it may not be easy to understand the basics of the API. In this post, I would like to focus on the basics as well as use cases, caveats, and best practices. Read on to learn more!
