PRODUCTS FEATURED

Status per printer and per device URLs

In addition to the summary status URLs for printers and devices, PaperCut NG/MF provides URLs for every printer and every device. You can use either the JSON attribute on each of these URLs, or the HTTP response codes depending on the capabilities of your monitoring tool.

These URLs provide the following simple HTTP response codes that can be consumed by most monitoring tools:

  • 200—Success

  • 500—Error

For example, if a printer is offline, the /api/health/printers/[printer Id]/status URL will return a status code of 500 (Error).

If you use the JSON attribute, more detailed status information is available when the status is not OK, for example, “Printer is out of toner”.
