This is a Check_MK API client implementation written in go. It's focused on Check_MK 1.5.x and may also work with earlier versions.

Before you run - make sure you have created the automation user in check_mk. For details please refer -

You have to use the existing TAG's defined in WATO , for standard installation its **Agent-Type - cmk-agent,snmp-only,snmp-v1,snmp-tcp,ping ** Criticality-Tag - prod,critical,test,offline

Work in Progress, created specifically for Terraform provider for check_mk


package main
import (
//      "fmt"

func main() {

        // account credentials and url to connect to grafana
        user := "autouser"
        host := ""
        sitename := "mva"
        client,error := cmkapi.NewClient(user,pass,host,sitename)

        if error == nil {
                //client.CreateHost("HostName", "Folder","Alias of host", "Agent-Type{cmk-agent,snmp-only,snmp-v1,snmp-tcp,ping}","Criticality-Tag{prod,critical,test,offline}","IP Address")
                client.CreateHost("winxp_1", "os/windows","Alias of winxp_1", "cmk-agent","prod","")
