Execute specific discovery job module on an IP outside of uCMDB UI

0 Votes

Please add the functionality to execute Host Connection by Shell, Inventory Discovery by Scanner or Range by ICMP outside of the UI. For example, JMX, or API (preferred). As an example of the current process; if we want to invoke HCbS on an IP Address we have to log into uCMDB, search the IP, right-click on the IP, select Actions, add CI to Discovery Job, HCbS.

With the upcoming release of the new Discovery UI within the CMS UI, we will simultaneously release a full featured REST API that can control all aspects of discovery.  We released the necessary REST APIs with CMS 2019.11 to allow you to manage and control IP ranges and credentials.  This additional release will allow for control of the various discovery components as well.
