List of portal APIs that do not require authentication?

Postby Frode » Sat Oct 05, 2013 11:45 pm

Does such a list exist? I was kinda hoping this would be in the SDK, but as it turned out it's not. So I'll try asking here instead.

I'm creating a few Rainmeter skins to keep tabs on the NAS without having to check a browser tab constantly. So far I've gotten CPU and network traffic histograms going, as well as RAM usage. But all the URLs that returns JSONs with storage information requires authentication (while Rainmeter's web parser plugin supports http authentication, the NAS does not seem to). Which makes sense, because they contain potentially sensitive information like volume and share names. However, is there one that returns non-sensitive storage information? Like the NASs total disk space and usage, regardless of volumes.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. My NAS is a 604T

Hi Forde,

In order to keep the box safe, all the API requires authentication when commutation with NAS box.
A SNMP client/service project will be kicked off early next year for user/MIS to monitor the system status.
Would you prefer SNMP?

As I mentioned there is at least one API that does not require authentication. I have sent you the specifics.

My need is to monitor my NAS without having to log in and look at its web interface. So SNMP should work fine once it is up and running. But since Rainmeter does not support that either, I'll need to either create my own monitoring app or a Rainmeter plugin either way. So I guess that's next weekend's project. :)
