I love this!

 

Thanks Jason!

 

New version. Added feature: Now the script can handle if BigIPReport has failed to index individual devices.

 

Could we set bigipReportURL to a local file?

 

You might be able to if you have a copy of the json file generated by BigIPReport. If you don't I might be able to make an update that supports a simple js object.

Hi Patrick,

 

I'm having trouble getting this to work. I copied and pasted Casecreation.js file into Tampermonkey and I can see it saved. When I do look at the script, this red X shows up for line 293.

 

for(var n in deviceNames)

 

The error says that 'n' is already defined. Could that be causing my issue?

 

Hi Shann

 

Did you configure the bigipreport URL?

I have updated the instructions with one more step. Hope that helps...

Yes, I configured it. My bigipReprtURL is there. What should the value be for @connect? I have linuxworker.j.local. Should that be something else?

 

Yeah, you should have the same DNS as your bigipreport. Instructions updated again, sorry for being unclear and thanks for feedback.

Thanks Patrick. I'll have to play around with it a little bit in a DEV area. We have an APM policy in front of the report so the authentication piece might be an issue.
