Is the token for claiming new nodes different each time?

Hi guys,

I’m interested in using netdata.cloud but I’d like to automate the claiming / unclaiming of new nodes using my automation tools.

Does the token for claiming nodes always stays the same, or is a unique token is generated each time? Is there some form of static auth key that can be generated? And is there a bash command for unclaiming / removing a node?

Also, are there any plans for a netdata.cloud REST API to allow us to do things like this programatically?

Cheers

@binaryfire thank you for using Netdata Cloud. We understand your needs but an API is not prioritized for now, for sure it will come at a later stage.

Soon you will be able to install and claim an agent to a Space at a single step. The claiming token does not expire. Therefore it’s safe to use it with your automation.

Unclaiming is not there yet, you will have to wait a couple of months. In the meanwhile Agent claiming · Netdata Agent | Learn Netdata
