ORBI SDK or REST API

Is there any SDK or REST API available for the ORBI system to be able to access the log?  I'd like to access the log remotely and send it into another system for analysis.

 

Hardware Version

   RBR50
 
Firmware Version   V1.4.0.34

 

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Yes this. Please expose a rest api for Orbi management!

I pray not.  This is one of the leading security holes in consumer gear from multiple vendors.

Re: ORBI SDK or REST API

There is already a GUI, was hoping for at least a REST API.  I can do some ugly PowerShell to grab the data and then parse but would rather not.

 

$URI = Invoke-RestMethod -Credential $Cred -Uri http://<IP of Orbi>/FW_log.htm
$URI | Foreach-Object{
$var = $_.Split([char]0X000A)
New-Variable -Name $var[0] -Value $var[1]
}

[array]$Log = foreach($v in $Var){if($V.Contains("[") -and $v.contains("]")){$V}}

 

Just looking for a way to scrape the log data.

I'd far rather they allow basic syslog forwarding.

Syslog forwarding would be great.  Holding breath but not too long Smiley Happy.  I would agree however this would be an ideal direction.  I know this is a consumer device but if we want to do more with the logs coming out of the device beyond just email, syslog would at leat allow to get someplace that then can be sent up to a cloud service like Log Analytics for parsing, graphic representing, trend analysis, etc.  The nerd inside me wants to do something with these logs beyond email.  Right now, I can see IPs, DOS attacks, etc.   Would love to do more with them.
