### Basic Usage

from __future__ import print_function

from pyopsview import OpsviewClient
from pyopsview.exceptions import OpsviewClientException

# Authenticate the client and load the appropriate API schema for the
# specific Opsview version
client = OpsviewClient(username='admin', password='initial',

# Create a new client using the token; this is useful for things like ansible
# where the login operation would otherwise have to be done for every operation
auth_token = client.token
client = OpsviewClient(username='admin', token=auth_token,

# Get a list of the configured hosts. This returns a generator.
all_hosts = client.config.hosts.list()
for host in all_hosts:

# Find all hosts monitored by the master monitoring server.
monitored_by_master = client.config.hosts.find(monitored_by='Master Monitoring Server')

# Update the address of one host
update_host = all_hosts[-1]
update_host['address'] = ''
update_host = client.config.hosts.update(update_host['id'], **update_host)

# Find the Master opsview server
opsview_master = client.config.hosts.find_one(name='Opsview')
if opsview_master is None:
raise RuntimeError('Failed to find the Opsview master server!')

# Get a list of all Service Checks on the Opsview master
master_service_checks = []
master_service_checks += opsview_master['service_checks']

for template in opsview_master['host_templates']:
template_detail = client.hosttemplates.find_one(template['name'])
master_service_checks += template_detail['service_checks']
