Panopta REST API Client

Project description

The Panopta REST API provides full access to all configuration, status and outage management functionality of the Panopta monitoring service, including the ability to create and modify monitoring checks that are being performed, manage notification configuration, respond to active outages and to pull availability statistics for monitored servers.


To install, just do a pip install of the package:

pip install panopta_rest_api

The library depends on the httplib2 module, which will also be installed if it’s not already available.

API Documentation

Full documentation for the API is available at By entering your API token you can view full details on all of the API methods and issue API requests from the documentation page.


The library provides a wrapper around the Panopta REST API, making it easy to issue GET, POST, PUT and DELETE operations to the API. A sample use of the library is below.

import api_client
import json

api_url = ''
api_token = 'testing'
version = '2'

if __name__ == '__main__':
  #-- initialize the client
  client = api_client.api_client(api_url,

  #-- get a server
  query_params = { 'fqdn': '', 'limit': 10, 'offset': 0 }
  results = client.get('/server', query_params=query_params)
  print json.dumps(results, indent=2)

  #-- create a contact
  data = { 'name': 'john', 'timezone': '%s/v%s/timezone/America/Chicago' % (api_url, version) }
  results ='/contact', request_data=data)
  print json.dumps(results, indent=2)
