CheckCentral API Documentation: createReport EndpointCheckCentral API Documentation: createReport Endpoint

August 23, 2021

The CheckCentral API provides an endpoint for adding reports programmatically. All of the configuration options are available through the API, detailed below. To add a new report through the API, you will require an API token for your organization with Read/Write access. Organization administrators can create tokens through the API portal on your dashboard.

The endpoint is located at https://api.checkcentral.cc/createReport/?apiToken=APITOKEN where the APITOKEN placeholder is replaced with your valid token. The request must be made with the Content-Type header set to application/json. The body of the request should contain the properties below to configure the new report's settings. Any properties not passed will be set to their default value.

For example, to add a new report you could send the following json in the body of the request:

Code

{
  "name": "Some Report",
  "email": "person@myorg.realdomain",
  "accessLevel": "User",
  "sendWelcomeEmail": true,
  "userGroups": [
    "userGroupID"
  ],
  "notifications": [
    { 
        "type": "failures",
        "services": [
            "sms",
            "push"
        ]
    }
  ]

Enabling Integration with External Ticketing SystemsEnabling Integration with External Ticketing Systems

July 6, 2021
CheckCentral notifies you of the status of your system and server backup jobs, but integration with ticketing systems enables automatic ticket management. CheckCentral currently supports integration with Atera, Autotask, Bugzilla, ConnectWise Manage, Freshdesk, GitHub, GitLab, HaloPSA, Jira Service Management, Jira Software, Kaseya BMS, Microsoft To Do List, Redmine, SyncroMSP, and Zendesk (with more to come).
Ticket creation, updates, and closing is all managed when integrating a ticketing system with CheckCentral.
The automated management include the following events:
  • Failure or Warning statuses will create new tickets.
  • Subsequent Failures or Warnings will update the ticket.
  • A return to the Success status will close the ticket.
Note: Manager or Administrator privileges are needed to add external ticketing systems to your CheckCentral organization.
Log into your CheckCentral.
On the main menu, click "Notifications," then "External Ticketing System."
Click "Add Ticketing System."
Click on your ticketing system.
Follow the directions from the prompt to fill in the necessary fields. These options/requirements will vary based on the ticketing system.
By default "All Check Groups" is enabled. To use the ticketing systems for select Check Groups, disable the "All Check Groups" checkbox and click the field below. Choose one or more groups from the populated list.
With the "Enable this external ticketing system" checkbox enabled, click the "Save" button.
For a more detailed guide on integrating a ticketing system, including customer import and asset ID integration, see HaloPSA Integration.
