Platform API Examples

Command line

Example to import a simple action using the BESImportFile.exe tool (simpleaction.bes was exported from the BigFix Console by right-clicking on an action and selecting "export"):

besimportfile.exe myconsoleuser mypassword bes_bfenterprise C:\key\publisher.pvk C:\example\simpleaction.bes



Perl

BESAPI.pm -- Library used for Perl examples below.

ImportFile.pl -- Imports any .bes file that has been exported from the BigFix Console and/or created (similar to besimportfile.exe example above...)

TakeActionFromFixlet.pl -- Takes an action from a Fixlet and allows you to specify action parameters.

 

C#

TakeActionFromFixlet.cs -- Takes an action from a Fixlet and allows you to specify action parameters.

Create Manage Property - Example using XMLImporter class to create a new manage property. This example works with TEM 8.2 or above because it does not handle signing keys as required in earlier versions.
