Documenting with PowerShell: Bulk edit configurations in IT-Glue

I know last week I said I’d take a break from the monitoring blogs, but a MSP recently requested if I knew a way to mass-edit specific configuration items in IT-Glue. In his case, he was going to change the network configuration of devices and wanted a quicker way than to just click on 20 devices. It would be getting annoying fast to do that via the interface.

To make these edits easier for him, I’ve decided to quickly script the following for him:

    #####################################################################
    $APIKEy =  "APIKEYHERE"
    $APIEndpoint = "https://api.eu.itglue.com"
    $orgID = "ORGIDHERE"
    $NewGateway = "192.1.1.254"
    #####################################################################
    If(Get-Module -ListAvailable -Name "ITGlueAPI") {Import-module ITGlueAPI} Else { install-module ITGlueAPI -Force; import-module ITGlueAPI}
    #Settings IT-Glue logon information
    Add-ITGlueBaseURI -base_uri $APIEndpoint
    Add-ITGlueAPIKey $APIKEy
    $ConfigList = (Get-ITGlueConfigurations -page_size 1000 -organization_id $OrgID).data.attributes | Out-GridView -PassThru
    foreach($Config in $ConfigList){
    $ConfigID = ($config.'resource-url' -split "/")[-1]
    $UpdatedConfig = 
    @{
        type = 'Configurations'
        attributes = @{
                    "default-gateway" = $NewGateway
        }
    }
    Set-ITGlueConfigurations -id $ConfigID -data $UpdatedConfig
    }

This grabs all configurations for the specific organisation ID you’ve filled in, it then gives you a grid with all the current configurations. Using this grid you can select the configurations you’d want to make a change and apply the new gateway. Its very easy to modify other fields in bulk too, for this, check the API documentation here.

Anyway, I hope it helps some people struggling with bulk edits, and as always, happy PowerShelling!
