f = open(file, ‘r’)     content = f.read()

f.close()     url = “https://” + appServer + “/phoenix/rest/deviceMon/updateMonitor”     auth = “Basic %s” % base64.encodestring(user + “:” + password)     request = urllib2.Request(url, content)     request.add_header(‘Authorization’, auth)     request.add_header(‘Content-Type’, ‘text/xml’) # ‘application/xml’     request.add_header(‘Content-Length’, len(content)+2)     request.add_header(‘User-Agent’, ‘Python-urllib2/2.7’)     request.get_method = lambda: ‘PUT’     try:

handle = urllib2.urlopen(request)     except urllib2.HTTPError, error:         if (error.code != 204):

print error if __name__==’__main__’:     if len(sys.argv) != 5:

print “Usage: UpdateMonitor.py appServer user password deviceDefFile”         print “Example: python UpdateMonitor.py 192.168.20.116 super/admin adm1n deviceMonitorDef.xml”         sys.exit()     restPost(sys.argv[1], sys.argv[2], sys.argv[3], sys.argv[4])

python UpdateMonitor.py <AccelOps_IP> <user> <password> <device monitor xml file name> Sample Query

python UpdateMonitor.py 172.16.20.210 “super/admin”

“admin*1” MonitorDevice.xml

Super_user needs to be explicitly stated in organization/user format, for example “super/admi n” or “super/admin” instead of just “admin”
