Python module for SOLIDserver REST API

Project description

EipRest - Simple Solidserver REST client

Python implementation of SOLIDserver REST client.


python3 -m pip install eiprest


As standalone executable script:

  • Using simple parameter format
    python -m eiprest -s dns_server_info dns_id=3
  • Using json format
    python -m eiprest --server dns_server_info '{"dns_id":3}'

Run python -m eiprest -h to see all command line options.

As python module in another script:

from eiprest import EipRest
rest = EipRest(host='', user='ipmadmin', password='admin', debug=True)
params = {'dns_id': 3}
rest.query('GET', 'dns_server_info',  params)
if rest.resp is not None:
  print('Response status: ', rest.resp.status_code)
  response_data = rest.getData()

Advanced Usage

EipRest Object Methods

EipRest(host, user, password, debug=False)

  • host: SOLIDserver hostname or IP address
  • user: SOLIDserver valid login name
  • password: SOLIDserver valid login password
  • debug: enable more verbose output

query(method, service, params=None, payload=None)

  • method: HTTP methods support only GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and OPTIONS
    Use GET for all *_list services (dns_server_list, dhcp_scope_list, etc.) and *_info services (dns_server_info, dhcp_scope_info, etc.).
    DELETE are reserved for all *_delete services.
    For *_add services, PUT (create) or POST (update) should be used.
    Use OPTIONS without any parameters to get all available input and output parameters of the service.
  • service: SOLIDserver API service name
  • params: Python dictionary containing service parameters
  • payload: Python dictionary containing additional parameters (optional)

rpc(method, service, params=None, payload=None)

Same as query method except that there is no input parameter validation check. Also this is the only way to call SOLIDserver macro in REST API.


rest.rpc('POST', 'clish_force_ntp_update.php')


Return last URL called.


Return HTTP response data.
