I have a client that needs to extract information about APs from AWMS however they do not have access to AirWave, is there a particular file that can be pulled using WinSCP or FTP?
They would like to pull all the information regarding the APs for academic research - or alternately I can possibly push the information to the client as well (if this is possible).
Any advice would be appreciated - thank you.
Do they have a user account to the web interface? They could make use of the AMP's XML APIs to fetch data regarding the APs. See the "AP Detail" or "AP List" APIs under Home > Documentation > State and Statistical XML API Documentation on the AMP for more information on what kind of data they contain.
What data about the APs in particular are they interested in?
Unfortunately, they do not have access to the WebUI, as such we are forced to use a thrid-party application (ie: WinSCP) to extract the database from the server directly. The would like to all the data related to the APs in any give time, such as:
I know I could run a report for all these information and grab that information in various formats, however the request is for this individual to be able to grab this information directly from the server in any given time. Hope this answers your question and clarify as why I am stuck :). Thanks.
So they have root access for scp but can't get a UI login to access APIs?
The data they want is not in one place on the system, and is not accessible through simple commands. But, it is accessible through the APIs, so my recommendation is to give them a read-only login to the UI which they can use to write scripts to pull data from the APIs.
thanks Muir, this is what I thought (reared) but wanted to put it out. Thanks again.
