Intro

Cisco Prime is a network management software suite that simplifies the management of wireless and wired networks.  Use Domo's Cisco Prime connector to retrieve data about various aspects of network management, including lists of API calls, clients, services, alarms, performance statistics, and more. To learn more about the Cisco Prime API, visit their page (https://developer.cisco.com/site/prime-infrastructure/documents/api-reference/rest-api-v3-0/).

Note: The user interface for building this connector is in Beta and not yet available in our Connectors listing in the Data Center, meaning you will not be able to find the connector on your own. However, if you would like we at Domo are more than happy to grant you access to the connector so that you can begin using it to pull your data into Domo. Please don't hesitate to reach out to betafeedback@domo.com to get access to the Beta for this connector. For contact information, see Getting Help.

You connect to your Cisco Prime account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Cisco Prime connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Cisco Prime account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username and password for your Cisco Prime account

  • The hostname or IP address of the Cisco Prime instance

Connecting to Your Cisco Prime Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Cisco Prime Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Cisco Prime account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Host

Enter the hostname or IP address for the Cisco Prime instance.

Username

Enter the username for your Cisco Prime account.

Password

Once you have entered valid Cisco Prime credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Cisco Prime DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
