Project Configration

  1. What we need from Nagios are server URL and API Key. Here’re the steps to obtain these info:
    • When you log into Nagios XI and are at the home dashboard, see the server url in the browser.
      • If the URL is ending with index.php, please remove the ending index.php, and the remaining part will be the server URL.
      • If the URL doesn’t have any characters following /nagiosxi, please copy the entire URL without the ending “/”.
    • A sample url input will be like
      (See Figure 1)
  2. Click on the upper right button with your user name showing.
    (See Figure 2)

  3. After clicking on it, you will be redirected to the account information page. Here we will collect the API key information.
