Feature Idea: API to find a monitor by name


It looks like the API allows me only to get monitors by their Id. Is there a way to get a monitor by its name? I know I can retrieve all monitors but this seems to be a very inefficient solution.

Hi @pawel.pabich

You’re right - you can only get specific monitor details by ID…

I’ll get a feature request filed for you, for more options within the API.

Would you please ensure that the ability to search on wildcard names is part of the requirement @RyanVeitch? I would suggest using the same character as used in NRQL for consistency.

That would be great. Thanks!

@RyanVeitch is there a way for me to get notified when the new API becomes available?

@stefan_garnham - Yes! I can add that stipulation to the request!

@pawel.pabich - for getting notified, we will often post updates like this to the #product-update tag, so you can keep watch of that.

The button in the upper right will allow you to get notified of new updates:
