Rest API – Applying a Blueprint to Configuration Items

How to apply a Blueprint to Configuration Items (CIs) in FireScope SPM.


The REST API allows you to apply a Blueprint to Configuration Items (CIs) in FireScope SPM.To apply a Blueprint to one or more CIs, POST a JSON document with the appropriate information to the following URL:

http://[IP address]:38050/web_services/bp_sync_job

Note: Don’t forget to change the IP address

Note: Un-linking Blueprint will have a cascading delete effect. All elements that are based on this linkage will be affected (for e.g.  Attributes, Event Definition, Policies, AEDs, Dashboards etc. Re-linking the Blueprint will not retrieve the data.)

Use the following example as a guide.

  "account_id" : "firescope",
  "blueprint_id" : "Availability_t",
  "sync_type" : 0,
  "instance_id" : [
    {"edge_device" : "Edge 1", "ci" : "REST Configuration Item 1"},
    {"edge_device" : "Edge 1", "ci" : "REST Configuration Item 2"}
