Re: mcafee nsp api - update alert

it seems that the api does not like the format of https://myIPS/sdkapi/alerts/<ALERTid>

i tried other commands and when you have id in the url it does not work

i tied alertid and tried alert uuid in both cases same errorr 9803

in the reference 9803 is error for wrong alertid

the error in api is sensor is missing

who can i contact for help?

Re: mcafee nsp api  - update alert

@Peter - Chances are Support won't be much help...most of us have/had very little experience using the API to do anything.

Now if he can get a case open and somehow convince them to escalate to SEO...a number of those resources have used the API.

@Ygross75 - Whatever you do, I hope you get this issue resolved.

I have limited experience using the API, and I have no idea what is going on here. I'll put my head to it, but don't expect anything anytime soon.
