Documenting with PowerShell: Syncing Unifi devices to IT-Glue

This blog should be used in together with my previous blog about Unifi documentation. This script syncs all devices to IT-Glue and makes sure the configurations are in sync with eachother.

It will overwrite any changes you’ve made to the configurations, so treat with care.

Else {

And that’s it! this blog will be followed up by another documentation blog pretty quick, so its shorter than normal. As always, Happy PowerShelling.

    Hi Kelvin,

    Love your blog posts, they’ve been very informative.

    Having a bit of an issue with this one though, I’m getting this error for sites that are linked back to IT Glue from your previous post.

    Editing previous existing device
    Set-ITGlueConfigurations : {“errors”:[{“status”:404,”title”:”Not found”,”detail”:”Record not found”,”source”:{“pointer”:”id”}}]}

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WriteErrorException,Set-ITGlueConfigurations

    I’ve confirmed the manufacturer and model entries have been added properly.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Hello, I’ve found great use in a lot of your scripts and you run a great blog! I’m running into the below error.. Any suggestions on what may be happening?

    Creating UniFi AP
    New-ITGlueModels : {“errors”:[{“status”:422,”title”:”Valid manufacturer_id is required”,”source”:{“pointer”:”data/attributes/manufacturer_id”}}]}

    Though the Models are getting created properly, I am still getting this error:

    Set-ITGlueConfigurations : {“errors”:[{“status”:404,”title”:”Not
    found”,”detail”:”Record not found”,”source”:{“pointer”:”id”}}]}
    At line:156 char:13

    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Write-Error], WriteErrorException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WriteErrorException,Set

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks again for your scripts!

      Seems like you also have some duplicate devices, the oneliner I added should take care of that though. If they are getting created correctly it might just be a bug.
