Subscribed Query Example: Creating A Subscribed Query

Here we create a new query to count file changes by name and have the result sent to us by email. The schedule field is any CFEngine context expression. The backend polls subscriptions in a loop and checks whether it's time to generate a report and send it out. In the following example, user milton creates a new subscription to a report which he names file-changes-report, which will be sent out every Monday night. His boss will get an email with a link to a PDF version of the report.

Request:

curl -k --user admin:admin https://test.cfengine.com/api/user/milton/ subscription/query/file-changes-report -X PUT -d '{"to": "boss@megaco.com", "query": "SELECT FileName, Count(*) FROM FileChangesLog GROUP BY FileName", "schedule": "Monday.Hr23.Min59", "title": "A very important file changes report""description": "Text that will be included in email""outputTypes": [ "pdf" ] }'
