Hi,

I have external application where I would like to retrieve Assets and Software data using the web service (SOAP or REST API) in order to get a list of Assets and Software and to have them in that external application?
Is this possible?


Can I invoke list of Assets and Software?

How to retrieve list of assets what will be the most recommendable way in order to transfer data from lansweeper database to some other database?

Thank you in advance,
Veljko

Unfortunately, Lansweeper currently only offers and API for the helpdesk module to create, retrieve or update tickets. An asset API has been requested before and is already on our customer wishlist. We've moved your topic to the wishlist section of our forum in this context. For now we don't have an estimated release date yet for an asset API.

The way we'd recommend retrieving information from your Lansweeper database currently would be via SQL queries. You could create a view that contains all the information you're looking for and export/import it. If you want to interface with your Lansweeper database externally, the connectionstring of your Lansweeper database can be found in Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Service\lansweeperservice.exe.config on your Lansweeper server or by opening ConfigEditor.exe under Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Tools if you're on version 6.0.100.

Restful API is increasing in weight as a requirement for solutions in our environment and it appears that it will become a must-have. The initial reason this has been important has been integration and the increasingly important reason is automation. Lansweeper may find that it will lose current customers or not gain new customers due to the absence of an API.

One workaround we are exploring is a third-party solution in front of the SQL back-end such as is described here:
