I was searching for a bug search API and found your post. I see that it's a bit old, but I was hoping that this may have been implemented since you posted. Is there anything like this available?
Foremost, thank you for the query.
Yes, we are working on Bug API (as part of Cisco Support APIs) and would love to discuss if you are interested.
Today 'Cisco Support APIs' portfolio offers following RESTful web services to SNTC Customers and PSS Partners.
1.EOX API – query only interface to end-of-life, end-of-service, end-of-support etc. information (Status: General Availability)
2.Case API – query only interface to TAC cases (Status: General Availability)
3.Service Order Return API – query only interface to RMA information (Status: General Availability)
4.SW Suggestion API- query only interface to get software suggestions (Status: Limited Availability)
5.Automated SW Distribution API 2.0 – lookup md5 checksum information (Status: Limited Availability)
6.SN2INFO API – query only interface to SN to PID and coverage status (Status: Limited Availability)
7.Bug API - query only interface to bugs information (Status: Work-in-Progress)
If you need more information please email Keith Colberg: email@example.com
These look like very good initiatives.
Is there also an API that can determine if SW is end of support (ie SW is no longer maintained to address any security bugs identified)?
With that, it would be possible to identify all devices that are running SW that cannot be patched to a secure SW version.
Thank you in advance
Yes, the EOX API that Alok mentions above can be used to find end of life SW as well as HW. It requires the user to provide the SW PID or the release as input.
Has anything come of the Bug API?
We are working on some initiatives that would be able to make great use of that data set if we could poll the API.
Please let us know.
