:
Get the SNMPengineID
The trap receiver (for example,
CA Spectrum
), using SNMPv3, uses the
SNMPengineID
to allow encrypted traps from a specific sender for decryption. Use the following REST endpoint to get the
SNMPengineID
:
URL:
http://<
pc_host
>:<
port
>/EventManager/webservice/notifications/engineId
  • port
    is the port for the Event Manager.
    Default:
    8281
Method:
GET
Return:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<EngineID>
<ID>
80:00:13:70:01:8a:2a:f8:41
</ID>
</EngineID>
The ID string is the
SNMPengineID
.
