Number of clients connected on the aruba wireless controller using API

  • 1.  Number of clients connected on the aruba wireless controller using API

    Hi,

     

    I need to find the number of wireless clients/devices connected on the aruba wireless controller using API. I have researched the API but could not find any object in the API that can be used for this purpose.

     

    Sample API request to find the AP groups:

     

    {HOST}/v1/configuration/object/ap_group?config_path=%2Fmm%2Fmynode&UIDARUBA=334c984f-7d22-4fff-84a7-a798af3f3d3f

     

    I have Aruba7005 , version 8.3.0.5

     

    Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks,

    Amardeep

    You could use "show" commands for this.

    For example "{HOST}/v1/configuration/showcommand?json=1&command=show+global-user-table+count&UIDARUBA=XXX" should give you the number of clients. This does not work because it count every client with every IP (so it seems).

    What I do is to use "show global-user-table list" and then count the unique MAC adresses.

    Hope this helps you. If someone has a better soloution, please let us know!
