Rightscale API call to get instance nickname

Jump to solution

I have a list of systems in GCP that I want to run a rightscipt against. I am using rsc to loop through that list.

The script takes the server name and does a lookup of the instance id to make api calls against it.

If the host is in a Server Array it fails to return a value.

I can get a list of all Server Arrays and the instances that are part of that array but I cannot get the name of the server.

Is there a way to use the API to get the "Nickname" value of the instance? 

Thanks!

Hello,

The Instances index  call should include the name field in all of its views. You can use it with a ServerArray ID like this:

rsc cm15 index /api/server_arrays/<id>/current_instances view=tiny

 If you need other details besides just the name and the few other fields available in the tiny view, you can use one of the other views mentioned in the docs.

Hi @TeddyRick ,

Are you able to share the rsc actions and/or API calls you are making today?

Thanks,
Sean
