I was wondering if there is a way to retreive the EndpointID from a computer?  We are a LabTech partner and it would be much easier to pull it from the computer instead of having to use an additional API call to obtain.
 
Thank you!

Hi @,
 
The EndpointID is generated server-side, and thus is only available via Unity API requests. You can retreive the EndpointID by using the GET Endpoints request from the Unity API (https://unityapi.webrootcloudav.com/Docs/APIDoc/Api/GET-api-console-gsm-gsmKey-sites-siteId-endpoints_type_hostName_machineId_order_orderDirection_pageSize_pageNr).

Thank you for your quick reply!
 
My concern is that some of our endpoints may have the same name.  While unlikely, it has happened in the past.
 
Am I correct in saying that the MachineId field is just the [InstanceMID]:::[DeviceMID]:::[DeviceMID]?  This would make it easier to guarantee that I'm working with the correct endpoint.
