IDS Sensor REST API Guide

Introduction to the ExtraHop REST API

The ExtraHop REST API enables you to automate administration and configuration tasks on your ExtraHop system. You can send requests to the ExtraHop API through a Representational State Transfer (REST) interface, which is accessed through resource URIs and standard HTTP methods.

When a REST API request is sent over HTTPS to an ExtraHop system, that request is authenticated and then authorized through an API key. After authentication, the request is submitted to the ExtraHop system and the operation completes.
Video:See the related training: Rest API Overview

Each ExtraHop system provides access to the built-in ExtraHop REST API Explorer, which enables you to view all of the available system resources, methods, properties, and parameters. The REST API Explorer also enables you to send API calls directly to your ExtraHop system.

Note:This guide is intended for an audience that has a basic familiarity with software development and the ExtraHop system.

ExtraHop API requirements

Before you can begin writing scripts for the ExtraHop REST API or performing operations through the REST API Explorer, you must meet the following requirements:

Access and authenticate to the ExtraHop REST API

Setup users and users with system and access administration privileges control whether users can generate API keys. For example, you can prevent remote users from generating keys or you can disable API key generation entirely. When this functionality is enabled, API keys are generated by users and can be viewed only by the user who generated the key.

Note:Administrators set up user accounts and assign privileges, but then users generate their own API keys. Users can delete API keys for their own account, and users with system and access administration privileges can delete API keys for any user. For more information, see Users and user groups.

After you generate an API key, you must append the key to your request headers. The following example shows a request that retrieves metadata about the firmware running on the ExtraHop system:

curl -i -X GET --header "Accept: application/json" \
--header "Authorization: ExtraHop apikey=2bc07e55971d4c9a88d0bb4d29ecbb29" \
"https://<hostname-or-IP-of-your-ExtraHop-system>/api/v1/extrahop"

Privilege levels

User privilege levels determine which ExtraHop system and administration tasks the user can perform through the ExtraHop REST API.

You can view the privilege levels for users through the granted_roles and effective_roles properties. The granted_roles property shows you which privilege levels are explicitly granted to the user. The effective_roles property shows you all privilege levels for a user, including those received outside of the granted role, such as through a user group.

The granted_roles and effective_roles properties are returned by the following operations:

  • GET /users
  • GET /users/{username}

The granted_roles and effective_roles properties support the following privilege levels. Note that the type of tasks for each ExtraHop system vary by the available resources listed in the REST API Explorer and depend on the modules enabled on the system and user module access privileges.

Manage API key access

Users with system and access administration privileges can configure whether users can generate API keys for the ExtraHop system. You can allow only local users to generate keys, or you can also disable API key generation entirely.

Users must generate an API key before they can perform operations through the ExtraHop REST API. Keys can be viewed only by the user who generated the key or system administrators with unlimited privileges. After a user generates an API key, they must append the key to their request headers.
  1. Log in to the Administration settings on the ExtraHop system through https://<extrahop-hostname-or-IP-address>/admin.
  2. In the Access Settings section, click API Access.
  3. In the Manage API Access section, select one of the following options:
    • Allow all users to generate an API key: Local and remote users can generate API keys.
    • Only local users can generate an API key: Remote users cannot generate API keys.
    • No users can generate an API key: No API keys can be generated by any user.
  4. Click Save Settings.

Generate an API key

You must generate an API key before you can perform operations through the ExtraHop REST API. Keys can be viewed only by the user who generated the key or by users with system and access administration privileges. After you generate an API key, add the key to your request headers or the ExtraHop REST API Explorer.

Before you begin

Make sure the ExtraHop system is configured to allow API key generation.
  1. In the Access Settings section, click API Access.
  2. In the Generate an API Key section, type a description for the new key, and then click Generate.
  3. Scroll down to the API Keys section, and copy the API key that matches your description.
You can paste the key into the REST API Explorer or append the key to a request header.

Configure cross-origin resource sharing (CORS)

Cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) allows you to access the ExtraHop REST API across domain-boundaries and from specified web pages without requiring the request to travel through a proxy server.

You can configure one or more allowed origins or you can allow access to the ExtraHop REST API from any origin. Only users with system and access administration privileges can view and edit CORS settings.
  1. In the Access Settings section, click API Access.
  2. In the CORS Settings section, specify one of the following access configurations.
    • To add a specific URL, type an origin URL in the text box, and then click the plus (+) icon or press ENTER.

      The URL must include a scheme, such as HTTP or HTTPS, and the exact domain name. You cannot append a path; however, you can provide a port number.

    • To allow access from any URL, select the Allow API requests from any Origin checkbox.
      Note:Allowing REST API access from any origin is less secure than providing a list of explicit origins.
  3. Click Save Settings and then click Done.

Set up an SSL certificate

Before making requests to an ExtraHop system with a self-signed certificate, you must set up an SSL certificate for each user who will access the ExtraHop system from a particular computer.

In each of the following examples, replace {HOST} with the hostname of your ExtraHop system.

Note:The SSL certificate applies only to the user performing the command. Each user must run the command with their login credentials to set up the SSL certificate.

Set up SSL through Windows PowerShell

Invoke-WebRequest "http://{HOST}/public.cer" -OutFile ($env:USERPROFILE +
"\ex.cer"); Import-Certificate ($env:USERPROFILE + "\ex.cer")
-CertStoreLocation Cert:\CurrentUser\Root

Set up SSL through OS X

curl -O http://{HOST}/public.cer; security add-trusted-cert -r trustRoot -k
~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain public.cer

Learn about the REST API Explorer

The REST API Explorer is a web-based tool that enables you to view detailed information about the ExtraHop REST API resources, methods, parameters, properties, and error codes. Code samples are available in Python, cURL, and Ruby for each resource. You also can perform operations directly through the tool.

Open the REST API Explorer

You can open the REST API Explorer from the Administration settings or through the following URL:

https://<extrahop-hostname-or-ip-address>/api/v1/explore/
  1. Log in to the Administration settings on the ExtraHop system through https://<extrahop-hostname-or-IP-address>/admin.
  2. From the Access Setting section, click API Access.
  3. On the API Access page, click REST API Explorer.
    The REST API Explorer opens in your browser.

View operation information

From the REST API Explorer, you can click any operation to view configuration information for the resource.

The following table provides information about the sections available for resources in the REST API Explorer. Section availability varies by HTTP method. Not all methods have all of the sections listed in the table.

Section Description
Body Parameters Provides all of the fields for the request body and supported values for each field.
Parameters Provides information about the available query parameters.
Responses Provides information about the possible HTTP status codes for the resource. If you click Send Request, this section also includes the response from the server and the cURL, Python, and Ruby syntax required to send the specified request.
Tip:Click Model to view descriptions of the fields returned in a response.

Identify objects on the ExtraHop system

Objects on the ExtraHop system can be identified by any unique value, such as the IP address, MAC address, name, or system ID. However, to perform API operations on a specific object, you must locate the object ID. You can easily locate the object ID through the following methods in the REST API Explorer.

  • The object ID is provided in the headers returned from a POST request. For example, if you send a POST request to create a page, the response headers display a location URL.

    The following request returned the location for the newly created tag as /api/v1/tags/1 and the ID for the tag as 1.

    {
     "date": "Tue, 09 Nov 2021 18:21:00 GMT ",
     "via": "1.1 localhost",
     "server": "Apache",
     "content-type": "text/plain; charset=utf-8",
     "location": "/api/v1/tags/1",
     "cache-control": "private, max-age=0",
     "connection": "Keep-Alive",
     "keep-alive": "timeout=90, max=100",
     "content-length": "0"
    }
  • The object ID is provided for all objects returned from a GET request. For example, if you perform a GET request on all devices, the response body contains information for each device, including the ID.

    The following response body displays an entry for a single device, with an ID of 10212:

    {
     "mod_time": 1448474346504,
     "node_id": null,
     "id": 10212,
     "extrahop_id": "test0001",
     "description": null,
     "user_mod_time": 1448474253809,
     "discover_time": 1448474250000,
     "vlanid": 0,
     "parent_id": 9352,
     "macaddr": "00:05:G3:FF:FC:28",
     "vendor": "Cisco",
     "is_l3": true,
     "ipaddr4": "10.10.10.5",
     "ipaddr6": null,
     "device_class": "node",
     "default_name": "Cisco5",
     "custom_name": null,
     "cdp_name": "",
     "dhcp_name": "",
     "netbios_name": "",
     "dns_name": "",
     "custom_type": "",
     "analysis_level": 1
    },
  • The object ID is provided in the URL for most objects. For example, in the ExtraHop system, click on Assets, and then Devices. Select any device and view the URL. In the following example, the URL for the device page shows Oid=10180.
    https://10.10.10.205/extrahop/#/Devices?details=true&device
    Oid=10180&from=6&interval_type=HR&until=0&view=l2stats

    To perform specific requests for that device, add 10180 to the id field in the REST API Explorer or to the body parameter in your request.

    The URL for dashboards displays a short_code, which appears after /Dashboard. When you add the short_code to the REST API Explorer or to your request, you must prepend a tilde to the short code.

    In the following example, kmC9Y is the short_code. To perform requests for this dashboard, add ~kmC9Y as the value for the short_code field.

    https://10.10.10.205/extrahop/#/Dashboard/kmC9Y/?from=6&interval_
    type=HR&until=0

    You can also find the short_code and dashboard ID in the Dashboard Properties for any dashboard, which can be accessed from the command menu . Some API operations, such as DELETE, require the dashboard ID.

Metrics

Metrics information is collected about every object identified by the ExtraHop system.

Note that metrics are retrieved through the POST method, which creates a query to collect the requested information through the API. For more information, see Extract metrics through the REST API.

The following table displays all of the operations you can perform on this resource:

Operation Description
POST /metrics Retrieves metrics for each specified object.
GET /metrics/next/{xid} If you request activity group metrics from a consolewith the POST /metrics, POST /metrics/total, or POST /metrics/totalbyobject operation and the response contains the xid field, the GET /metrics/next/{xid} operation returns metrics from one of the sensors connected to the console.

Repeat the GET /metrics/next/{xid} operation to return metrics from additional sensors. After all metrics are retrieved, the operation returns null.

POST /metrics/total Retrieves combined metric totals for all specified objects.
POST /metrics/totalbyobject Retrieves metric totals for each specified object.

For example, the following request body retrieves HTTP responses that two devices sent over the last 30 minutes.

{
  "cycle": "auto",
  "from": -1800000,
  "metric_category": "http_server",
  "metric_specs": [
    {
      "name": "rsp"
    }
  ],
  "object_ids": [
    180, 177
  ],
  "object_type": "device",
  "until": 0
}

For the POST /metrics operation, the previous example request body returns counts of HTTP responses that occurred during each time interval, labeled with the time of each event and the ID of the device that sent the responses, similar to the following example response:

{
  "cycle": "30sec",
  "node_id": 0,
  "clock": 1709659320000,
  "from": 1709657520000,
  "until": 1709659320000,
  "stats": [
    {
      "oid": 177,
      "time": 1709657520000,
      "duration": 30000,
      "values": [
        4
      ]
    },
    {
      "oid": 177,
      "time": 1709657550000,
      "duration": 30000,
      "values": [
        4
      ]
    },
    {
      "oid": 180,
      "time": 1709657520000,
      "duration": 30000,
      "values": [
        4
      ]
    },
    {
      "oid": 180,
      "time": 1709657550000,
      "duration": 30000,
      "values": [
        4
      ]
    }
  ]
}

For the POST /metrics/totalbyobject operation, the same previous example request body retrieves the combined total for each device over the entire time period, similar to the following example response:

{
  "cycle": "30sec",
  "node_id": 0,
  "clock": 1709659620000,
  "from": 1709657820000,
  "until": 1709659620000,
  "stats": [
    {
      "oid": 180,
      "time": 1709659620000,
      "duration": 1830000,
      "values": [
        8
      ]
    },
    {
      "oid": 177,
      "time": 1709659620000,
      "duration": 1830000,
      "values": [
        8
      ]
    }
  ]
}

For the POST /metrics/total operation, the same previous example request body retrieves the combined total of both devices over the entire time period, similar to the following example response:

{
  "cycle": "30sec",
  "node_id": 0,
  "clock": 1709659830000,
  "from": 1709658030000,
  "until": 1709659830000,
  "stats": [
    {
      "oid": -1,
      "time": 1709659830000,
      "duration": 1830000,
      "values": [
        16
      ]
    }
  ]
}

Note that the behavior of the /metrics/total and /metrics/totalbyobject endpoints depends on the type of the metric. For count metrics, the values field contains a sum total of values over the specified time interval, as shown in the example above. However, for dataset metrics, the values field contains a list of values and the frequency that those values appeared. For example, a query for server processing times with the POST /metrics/total operation returns a response similar to the following example:

{
  "cycle": "30sec",
  "node_id": 0,
  "clock": 1494541440000,
  "from": 1494539640000,
  "until": 1494541440000,
  "stats": [
    {
      "oid": -1,
      "time": 1494541380000,
      "duration": 1800000,
      "values": [
        [
          {
            "value": 2.271,
            "freq": 5
          },
          {
            "value": 48.903,
            "freq": 1
          }
        ]
      ]
    }
  ]
}

If there are more than 1,000 distinct dataset values over the specified time period, similar values are consolidated to reduce the response to 1,000 values. For example, if there are less than 1,000 values, the response might contain the following entries:

{
  "value": 2.571,
  "freq": 4
},
{
  "value": 2.912,
  "freq": 2
}

However, if the response contains more than 1,000 values, those entries might be consolidated into the following entry:

{
  "value": 2.571,
  "freq": 6
}

If the calc_type field is specified and the response contains more than 1,000 values, the percentile or mean is calculated according to the consolidated dataset.

Open Data Stream

An open data stream (ODS) is a channel through which you can send specified metric data from a sensor to an external, third-party system. For example, you might want to store or analyze metric data with a remote tool, such as Splunk, MongoDB, or Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Sending data through an open data stream is a two-step procedure. First, you configure a connection to the target system that will receive the data. Second, you write a trigger that specifies what data to send to the target system and when to send it. For more information, see Open Data Streams.

The following table displays all of the operations you can perform on this resource:

Record Log

Records are structured flow and transaction information about events on your network.

After you connect the ExtraHop system to a record store, you can generate and send record information to the recordstore, and you can query records to retrieve information about any object on your network. For more information, see Query for records through the REST API.

The following table displays all of the operations you can perform on this resource:

Operation Description
GET /records/cursor/{cursor} Deprecated. Replaced by POST /records/cursor.
POST /records/cursor Retrieve records starting at a specified cursor.
POST /records/search Perform a record log query.

Operation details

POST /records/search

Specify the following parameters.

body: Object
The record log query.
from: Number
The beginning timestamp of the time range the query will search, expressed in milliseconds since the epoch. A negative value specifies that the search will begin with records created at a time in the past. For example, specify -600000ms to begin the search with records created 10 minutes before the time of the request. Negative values can be specified with a time unit other than milliseconds, such as seconds or hours. See the REST API Guide for supported time units and suffixes.
until: Number
The ending timestamp of the time range the query will search, expressed in milliseconds since the epoch. A 0 value specifies that the search will end with records created at the time of the request. A negative value specifies that the search will end with records created at a time in the past. For example, specify -300000ms to end the search with records created 5 minutes before the time of the request. Negative values can be specified with a time unit other than milliseconds, such as seconds or hours. See the REST API Guide for supported time units and suffixes.
types: Array of Strings
(Optional) An array of one or more record formats. The query returns only records that match the specified formats. If no value is specified, the query returns records of any type. Valid values for this field are displayed in the Record Type field on the Record Formats page. For example: "~cifs".
limit: Number
The maximum number of records returned by the query. The maximum value cannot exceed 10000. The default value is 100.
offset: Number
The number of records to skip in the query results. The query will return records starting from the offset value. This parameter is often combined with the limit and sort parameters. The default value is 0. For ExtraHop recordstores, the maximum value is 10,000; to retrieve records returned after the first 10,000, see POST /records/cursor/. For third-party recordstores, there is no maximum value.
sort: Array of Objects
The list of one or more sort objects that specify sort priorities. The returned records are sorted in the order the objects are listed. The parameters are defined under the sort_item section below. If no sort_item values are provided, records are sorted by timestamp in descending order.
field: String
The field name that returned records are sorted by.
direction: String
The order in which returned records are sorted. The default order is descending. After all other sorting criteria are applied, or if no sorting criteria was specified, the default order is descending by timestamp.

The following values are valid:

  • asc
  • desc
filter: Object
The object containing the parameters that specify the filter criteria. The parameters are defined under the filter section below. If no filter values are provided, the query returns all records that match the time range and any specified record formats.
field: String
The name of the field in the record to be filtered. The query compares the contents of the field parameter to the value of the operand parameter. If the specified field name is ".any", the union of all field values will be searched. If the specified field name is ".ipaddr" or ".port", the client, server, sender, and receiver roles are included in the search. Field names are located in record formats that can be viewed in the ExtraHop system.
operator: String
The compare method applied when matching the operand value against the field contents. All filter objects require an operator.

The following values are valid:

  • >
  • <
  • <=
  • >=
  • =
  • !=
  • startswith
  • ~
  • !~
  • and
  • or
  • not
  • exists
  • not_exists
  • in
  • not_in
operand: String or Number or Object
The value that the query attempts to match. The query compares the value of the operand to the contents of the field parameter and applies the compare method specified by the operator parameter. You can explicitly specify the operand data type as described in the REST API Guide.
rules: Array of Objects
The list of one or more filter objects within a single filter object. Filter objects can be embedded recursively. Only "and", "or", and "not" operators are allowed for this parameter.
context_ttl: Number
The amount of time to keep the search context active. The specified value is interpreted as a duration into the future. The default unit is milliseconds, but other units can be specified with a unit suffix. See the REST API Guide for supported time units and suffixes. If a non-null value is specified, the response includes a cursor ID that is accepted by POST /records/cursor/. This parameter is not supported for third-party recordstores.

Specify the body parameter in the following JSON format.

{
    "context_ttl": 0,
    "filter": {
        "field": "string",
        "operator": "string",
        "operand": "string",
        "rules": []
    },
    "from": 0,

        "direction": "string"
    },
    "types": [],
    "until": 0
}
POST /records/cursor

Specify the following parameters.

body: Object
The cursor ID that specifies the next page of results in the query.
cursor: String
The unique identifier of the cursor that specifies the next page of results in the query.

{
    "cursor": "string"
}
context_ttl: Number
(Optional) The amount of time to keep the search context active, expressed in milliseconds.
GET /records/cursor/{cursor}

Specify the following parameters.

cursor: String
The cursor ID.
context_ttl: Number
(Optional) The amount of time to keep the search context active, expressed in milliseconds.

If the request is successful, the ExtraHop system returns an object in the following format.

{
    "cursor": "string",
    "from": 0,
    "records": {},
    "total": 0,
    "until": 0,
    "warnings": {}
}

Operand values in record queries

The operand field in the POST /records/search method specifies the value that a record query attempts to match. You can specify either the value only or both the data type and the value. If you specify only the value, the query will refer to the record format associated with the field parameter to determine the data type of the value.

For example, if you want to search for an IP address, you can specify an IP address data type, and then provide the actual address as the value.

The following example explicitly specifies the data type and value of the operand:

{
    "from": -1000,
    "filter": {
        "field" : "senderAddr",
        "operator": "=",
        "operand" : { "type" : "ipaddr4", "value": "1.2.3.4" }
    }
}

The following example specifies only the value of the operand:

{
    "from": -1000,
    "filter": {
        "field" : "senderAddr",
        "operator": "=",
        "operand" : "1.2.3.4"
    }
}

You can explicitly specify the following data types in the operand field:

  • application
  • boolean
  • device
    Note:You must specify the discovery ID of the device in the value field. You can find the discovery ID of a device through the POST /devices/search operation.
  • device_filter
  • device_group
  • flowinterface
  • flownetwork
  • ipaddr4
  • ipaddr6
  • number
  • network_locality
  • object
  • string

The operand field supports CIDR notation when filtering by IP addresses; the operator field must be set to "=" or "!=".

You can specify multiple filters by including the rules option, as shown in the following example:
{
  "filter": {
    "operator": "and",
    "rules": [
      {
        "field": "method",
        "operand": "SMB2_READ",
        "operator": "="
      },
      {
        "field": "reqL2Bytes",
        "operand": "100",
        "operator": ">"
      }
    ]
  },
  "types": [
    "~cifs"
  ],
    "from": "-30m"
}

Query records with a device group filter

To filter records by device group in the REST API, you must send a POST request to the /records/search endpoint with a record query filter that meets the following criteria:

  • The field must specify devices, such as client, server, sender, or receiver.
  • The operator must be either in or not_in.
  • The operandtype must be device_group.
  • The operandvalue must be a string representation of the numerical device group ID. You can retrieve device group IDs by running the GET /devicegroup operation and viewing the contents of the id field in the response.

For example, the following query searches for records in which the client device was a member of a device group with an ID of 200:

{
    "from": "-30m",
    "filter": {
        "field": "client",
        "operator": "in",
        "operand": {
            "type": "device_group",
            "value": "200"
        }
    }
}

You can also filter records by device group criteria without creating a device group by specifying the operand type as device_filter. For example, the following query searches for records in which the client device is running Windows 10:

{
    "from": "-30m",
    "filter": {
        "field": "client",
        "operator": "in",
        "operand": {
            "type": "device_filter",
            "value": {
                "field": "software",
                "operand": "windows_10",
                "operator": "="
            }

Query records with a network locality filter

To filter records by device group in the REST API, you must send a POST request to the /records/search endpoint with a record query filter that meets the following criteria:

  • The field must be a record field that specifies an IP address such as clientAddr, serverAddr, senderAddr, or receiverAddr.
  • The operator must be either in or not_in.
  • The operand type must be network_locality.
  • The operand value must be a string representation of a numerical network locality ID. You can view locality IDs with the GET /networklocalities operation.

For example, the following query searches for records where the client device is in a network locality with an ID of 123:

{
    "from": "-30m",
    "filter": {
        "field": "clientAddr",
        "operand": {
            "type": "network_locality",
            "value": "123"
        },
        "operator": "in"
    }
}

Supported time units

For most parameters, the default unit for time measurement is milliseconds. However, the following parameters return or accept alternative time units such as minutes and hours:

  • Device
    • active_from
    • active_until
  • Device group
    • active_from
    • active_until
  • Metrics
    • from
    • until
  • Record Log
    • from
    • until
    • context_ttl

The following table displays supported time units:

Time unit Unit suffix
Year y
Month M
Week w
Day d
Hour h

To specify a time unit other than milliseconds for a parameter, append the unit suffix to the value. For example, to request devices active in the last 30 minutes, specify the following parameter value:

GET /api/v1/devices?active_from=-30m

The following example specifies a search for HTTP records created between 1 and 2 hours ago:

{
    "from": "-2h",
    "until": "-1h",
    "types": ["~http"]
}
