    i have an issue when using the API !!

    $ROUTER_ENDPOINT = "device_router"

    $ROUTER_ACTION = "DeviceRouter"
    $ROUTER_METHOD = "getDevices"

    what does Router_endpoint refer to?
    and even if I want to get traffic and events from an access point or switch, what shall I configure?

    There may be confusion over the word "router" here?  I cannot give you the exact technical definition but in the API a "router" is a piece of code that takes API calls and passes them to routines, generally in a "facade" (more code, typically more detailed).  So there is a device router, a process router, a zep router for accessing events,... and so on.

    This use of "router" is not directly associated with devices that come from Cisco, Juniper etc and are used to build physical networks.
