  • 1.  Automating network documentation with Aruba Central REST API

    Updating documentation was always my weak point. It takes a long time and it's obsolete when you finished it. With REST API you can automate many documentation tasks. On my recent project it would take too much time to manually collect and format all data to complete the documentation. And it was always changing. So I wrote a small python package to do the hard lifting for me.

    It collect all required data from Aruba Central and create a set of MS Word documents detailing current state. When change is done I can just rerun the package and have a fresh set of documentation created.   

    Package is work in progress and currently only support APs. You can get it from github. Here is Airheads Library entry with details.
