warranty lookup from service tagCompleted
function that will look at a service tag support expiration date and send you a warning nag message to update the support contract.
- vendors keep changing their APIs.
- Also, direct API access is required for each customer.
- And lastly, with externally published script, customers also contribute to the code to get bugs fixed faster or make changes based on vendor api changes.
We plan to keep this external for now.
We have also added support for IBM, HP and Lenovo.
This would be a great feature if it supported as many hardware vendors as possible:
Dell, HP, etc.1
This is a fantastic idea. I can't speak for HP, but I know that Dell has an bulk warranty-check API. I know cisco has a tool to lookup warranty statuses, but I'm not sure if they have an API for it.1
Dell API keys are limited to end user, so each user have to request them from Dell. With that in mind, we have added a python script that you can use to update your devices in Device42 with warranty info: https://github.com/device42/warranty_check
You will need to get an API key from Dell, configure the script and run.1
Could this be integrated directly into the device42 site? Running an external python script is a bit clunky.1
We have added the warranty check functionality built into the Main Appliance in version 14.2.0.
