I have been asked to provide API assistance into our CUCM clusters to assist with basic help desk analysis and troubleshooting of End User Jabber and CSF Device setup configuration.
I am very limited with API, only dealing with it for CMS configuration.
I am trying to review the Cisco Developer Collaboration pages for API AXL but I am having difficult time trying to find and understand how to perform this. Is there anyone that can guide me through the basics of how to setup GETs for these items?
Sorry for my limited knowledge of API, new to using them.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't know of any AXL primer. I will write one soon. For now, I recommend you read this documentation. You should play with the API using something like SoapUI.
If you have any specific questions about any particular function in the API, I can help you. As for general usage, like I said, I'll write something up and post a link here when it's ready. It's not something I could detail for you here.
It's taking longer than I expected to create the tutorial video. But I'm borrowing material from a learning lab I wrote some time ago. The material I'm borrowing instructs you on how to download the AXL Toolkit. But instead of talking about Python and Zeep, I will show how to download and install SoapUI, and how to set up an AXL soap project. SoapUI is a great way to explore AXL and play with the different SOAP requests.
Download SoapUI here. Download the open source version on the right. It's free.
Here's the learning lab which I hope can help you get started.
No, it's going to be weeks before I'm done. I'm going to write it up as a tutorial first, and then finish the video as a separate project. It's good to have both because some people would rather watch a video than read an article. I'll let you know when the article is ready.
