OpenNMS Javascript API CircleCI

A client API for accessing the OpenNMS network monitoring platform.

Using the OpenNMS.js APIs In Your Code

Information on getting started and how to use the API is in the HOWTO document.

The complete API list is available at docs.opennms.org.

Using the OpenNMS.js Command Line

  1. install Node.js
  2. run sudo npm install -g opennms
  3. run opennms --help for a list of possible commands

API Coverage

OpenNMS.js currently supports a subset of the OpenNMS ReST API:

  • query alarms, events, and nodes (including complex queries against OpenNMS Horizon 21+ and Meridian 2017+)
  • acknowledge, escalate, and clear alarms
  • create, update, and close trouble tickets against an alarm
  • create, update, and delete alarm sticky memos
  • create, update, and delete alarm journal memos

Future plans include adding support for other common ReST operations:

  • creating, updating, deleting, and importing requisitions
  • query the measurements ReST API (RRD/Newts time-series data)
  • query outages and notifications


The CHANGELOG will be updated as releases occur, and should always be accessible here.

Debugging Tests

On MAC OS X with WebStorm v2017.2 debugging tests may not work. See https://github.com/facebook/jest/issues/1652 for more details. The described solution there is to add --env jest-environment-node-debug as argument to the runtime configuration.
