Rest API – Service Groups

How to create, update,search and delete Service Groups in SDDM using the REST API.


The REST API allows you to work with Service Groups in FireScope SDDM.

  • Retrieve
  • Search
  • Create or Update
  • Delete


To retrieve the current information about a Service Group as a JSON document, send a GET request with the following URL format:

Note: Don’t forget to change the domain name (localhost) and query parameter values (account, and name) to match your environment and data.

 Query Parameter Descriptions

Parameter Description Type Required
account Name of account. String Yes
name Name of Service Group. String Yes

Searching provides for the ability to return multiple results in a single call using various filter criteria. To accomplish this, a GET request is sent with a parameter search=true. Every other field besides account is optional and is used to further filter the results. Pagination is mandatory and accomplished using the page and size parameters. The JSON response will wrap the result list and also display the page and the size. The size in the response represents the number of results actually returned, not the size in the request. The response does not contain a count of the total number of pages or the total number of records for performance reasons. The client is expected to keep querying, increasing the page each time, until the result size is less than the requested size, indicating no more results.


Note: Don’t forget to change the domain name (localhost) and query parameter values (account, logicalgroup, name, page and size) to match your environment and data.
