Azure Resource Health

Azure Resource Health helps you quickly and easily diagnose service problems that affect your Azure resources. It reports on the current health of your resources providing it's current status.

You just need to complete two simple steps to retrieve all the detailed information you may need for all the resources of a given subscription and resource group.

 

Well, one reason may be because you don't have the necessary permission to view that information. If it's tha case you will keep seeing the same message in any folling attemps of entry.

The other reason it's because Microsoft has a security ensurance step that obliges the user to confirm it's identity and we can't escape from it right now.

So, if you got an denial of access or if you are redirect for a microsoft login page, please don't be afraid and just repeat your login or introduce your EDP's credentials in Microsofts login page.

From that moment on you are all set and you never need to worry about it again... we hope!

Anyway, if the problem persists please contact us through our contact page. We are here to help you out!

Integration Repository

The query returns all services or API's that contains the string you are searching for as part of the name of any of it's consumer applications. So if the string you're using it's not working, just try a part of it or a different one.

Example: If you're looking for SIM-F, try searching just for "SIM". You will get more results like "SIM-F; SIM_F_DEV; SIM-H;..." but than you can narrow your search.

APIs

For the entities involved in the Energy sector and the public.

You will see also some APIs in some specific catalogs that are for EDP exclusive use.

Please check Getting Started page for more details

A plan is a collection of API resources or subsets of resources from one or more APIs.

A plan can contain a mixture of HTTP GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE verbs from different APIs or it can contain all the GET verbs from various APIs.

A plan can have a common rate limit for all the resources or each resource can have a different rate limit. Rate limits specify how many requests an application can make during a specified time interval.

Use this Developer Portal to browse the different plans that are available to you and select a plan that is most suitable for your requirements. Some plans have restricted access that you must request access to use. When you submit your request, the organization is notified, the API administrator assesses your request and they might contact you for more details.

Other plans are available to use straight away.

First, you should be logged to the Developer Portal.

Later, go to the "Apps" menu and create an application. Right after, you will receive the client ID and client secret, save it!.

You must have this information when you call an API.

When you go to the step to subscribe to an API, or actually to a plan, you should choose the App you just created and start consuming it.

Your application client secret is stored encrypted, so we cannot retrieve the unencrypted version to tell you the value.

You can reset it, which will update the stored value and return the new value to you. You old value will automatically stop to work, so, be careful.

To do that click 'Apps' in the main menu, click on the application in question and then you can click the 'Reset' link in the 'Client Secret' section. Your new secret will be displayed at the top of the page.

Save it in a secure place for future use and so you don´t need to do that again.

It is possible to test an API directly from the Developer Portal. When looking at the details of an API you will see a table of the operations contained in the API.

The Developer Portal will show you all the methods available, GET, POST, DELETE, etc, and what are the paths to use.

If you click on the resource you will see more information about it, what parameters it might take, what it returns, what possible return codes it might use and what they mean. There is also a 'Try' button which enables you to try the resource out direct from the Developer Portal.

If you have any doubt or any feedback, please let us know.

We use API keys for authorization, this is sent as a request header. You can find more details on the API definition.

For now, we have only 4 catalogs. The 4 main catalogs are Public, Private, Internal and Web Services. If you are a developer outside EDP, you should look for the APIs in the Public catalog. If you are a partner, you should consume APIs on the Private catalog. If you are part of EDP, you should use the Internal catalog for REST Services and Web Services Catalog for SOAP services.

IP Address Management

IPAM means IP Address Management.

It is the administration of DNS and DHCP, which are the network services that assign and resolve IP addresses to machines in a TCP/IP network. Simply put, IPAM is a means of planning, tracking, and managing the Internet Protocol address space used in a network.

If you need some detail in a specific IP you just fill the field with it and give it a go. In return you'll get all details that IPAM has about it such as Address Mask, CIDR, Friendly Name, Comments, VLAN and Location.

After that you can explore every entry that was returned by searching its VLAN and Location values.

If you want to know every address that is in a specific VLAN you just fill the field with it and give it a go. In return you'll get all details that IPAM has about it such as Address, Address Mask, CIDR, Friendly Name, Comments and Location.

After that you can explore every entry that was returned by searching its Address and Location values.

A location corresponds to a EDP datacenter.

So, if you want to know every address that is in a specific location you just fill the field with it and give it a go. In return you'll get all details that IPAM has about it such as Address, Address Mask, CIDR, Friendly Name, Comments and VLAN.
