Rest Wizard with Swagger 2.0 JSON fileOpen in a New Window

Hi All

I've been attempting to build a set of operations for a tool (Avi Networks load balancer) that has API documentation in Swagger 2.0 format.  The load balancer itself has yaml files available for each API, and since it seems like the rest-wizard wants json format, I've converted them using the online tool at editor.swagger.io.

rest-wizard is giving an error of "Unable to locate resources" when trying to use the file.  In rest-wizard.log I'm only seeing a java.lang.NullPointerException.  I've attempted to modify the basePath in the json to include a full URL to the base api entry point, but that doens't seem to be making a difference.  I've also tried pointing rest-wizard directly to the yaml on the load balancer, but that gives the same "Unable to locate resources" message.  I've also built some calls directly in Studio to the API and don't have any problems with authentication, returning data, etc, but was hoping not to have to build all of the operations for this manually if possible.

Has anyone run in to something like this, or have an idea of what to check for? 

Thanks in advance for any help!



HPE OO 10.70 has been releasedOpen in a New Window

Hi All,

We are proud to announce that HPE OO 10.70 has been released!
HPE OO 10.70 is available for download here

What’s New

Central Enhancements
Rerun a flow from a specific step - Central provides the ability to rerun a flow from a specific step if the flow failed or was cancelled.
Network Consumption Enhancements – the number of network requests and the RAS-Central throughput have been reduced by implementing several changes
HPE OO is now compatible with CloudSlang version 1.0 - for details on the CloudSlang and how it is used to define workflows in OO, see the CloudSlang documentation here.

Data Persistence Enhancements
New functionality has been added in HPE OO to enable reducing the amount of data persisted in the database, thus decreasing the overall OO database use.
To implement this, you can define the persistence of a step in a flow to allow less data to be persisted in the OO database.

Note: both data persistence and rerun a flow from a specific step have introduced new capabilities on the Studio side.

Database Health Enhancements
Rerun Usage Information in Database Health Graph - if you have defined rerun points in a flow, you can now see the Rerun Usage information in the Database Health graph in Central.
Purge Rerun Info - the Database Health tab also displays information about how to schedule rerun data purging flows, in order to control the size of the database.

Auto-upgrade your 10.60 RASes to HPE OO 10.70
You can automatically upgrade your RASes from version 10.60 by using the Central UI and the ras-upgrade.zip file, which is available from the HPE OO installation package.

OOSH Enhancements
OOSH now uses latest Central REST API
OOSH is now able to trigger CloudSlang flows
OOSH is now available as a standalone version and no longer requires a full Central installation.
An option to trigger a flow synchronously has been added to OOSH.

OOSHA Enhancements
The OO Shell for Authoring (OOSHA) can now create content packs from CloudSlang projects.
OOSHA is now available as a standalone version and no longer requires a full Central installation.

Best regards,
Andrei Vasile Truta


Read from Excel File and execute DB UpdateOpen in a New Window

Hi Guys,

Wondering if I can get some assistance with creating a new job in HP OO v10?

I would like the job to read an excel file and execute an SQL based on the information from each row.

Basically, the excel file will include multiple distinct rows of First Name, Last Name, Employee Number.
I would like to convert the above into variables and run the SQL update for each row.

The SQL update will take the First Name, Last Name, Employee Number and place them into the variables assigned to them.

Currently we are manually entering First Name, Last Name, Employee Number for the DB component, but would be preferrable if we can loop through each row of the provided spreadsheet.

Hope that makes sense!



REST wizard operation - problemsOpen in a New Window

Hello Practitioners!

I have been investigating how to use the REST API exposed by Redhat Cloudforms, and have not been having any luck at all in using the REST wizard provided. It seems that the CloudForms API is not Swagger nor RAML nor WADL, so is there a way to walk the API and create operations based on the APIs that are found via this wizard?

Flow to have SCCM deploy packageOpen in a New Window

Hello!  I am struggling with trying to create a flow to deploy a package in SCCM 2012.  I have OO 10.60 and the IT Operations 1.3.0 CP so I have the flow steps for SCCM.  I can create a static collection and add a server to it (Create Static Collection), create an advertisement (Create Advertisement), but what do I need to do after that to get the package to deploy?  After running the flow I have a collection with a server but it just sits there and never deploys the package.  I have an Update Advertisement step and a Request Refresh Collection, but they are not doing anything that I can see.


Can anyone tell me what I am missing?




Flow Variable Filters Not ApplyingOpen in a New Window

I've been working with HPOO for sometime so I have pretty good hands on knowledge of how to use filters with results. I'm having an issue where filters I have applied to operation results are not working. In studio they test correctly in the inspector, but when I run the flow in studio or Central, its like they are not even there.


Web Services Wizard does not create Operations from WSDLOpen in a New Window


I am trying to create operations for use with BMC Remedy. Our Remedy team provided us with the URL for the WSDL file, which I input in the ws-wizard.bat executable. It sees the operation (it's just one), but does not generate the HP OO Operations for it, giving the error dialog:

"All the flows were already present in the repository. No new flow was created."

However, in the folder of the Project that I created with the wizard, there are no flows, even in under Library\Wizards\Web Services Wizard. In fact under that folder there is only a file named "ERI" with 0 byes.

Has anyone encountered this issue before? How did you resolve this?

Create Downtime Management in OMi using OO..Open in a New Window

Hi Team,

I am trying to create downtime management in OMi using OO. I am using a REST call from OO to do that.

It works fine if I gave the CI ID parameter as static value in the REST body.

But if I pass as a variable as ${ciId}, it creates a downtime management but there is no CI associated to it.

Variables are passing properly without any issues.

Any suggestions...?
