Michael Clay commented on MNT-1274:

The objects that facilitate this are already in place.  It is entirely possible that you could utilize them in order to make external scripts manipulate the database and perform the same validation checks that Maintain uses.

>      Project: Maintain
>         Type: Task
>     Versions: 3.0
>     Reporter: Brandon Philips

>     Priority: Urgent
>      Fix For: 3.0

> Original Estimate: 4 weeks

> Alot of people on campus would love to tie their Web apps into Maintain.  
> Helpdesk for example would love to be able to tie their issues tracking tools into some of the Maintain features so they could, for example, disable a host from within HelpDesk, or find a Resnet user via IP or MAC.  Currently these features are available to a point, but it requires direct access to the database and is read only.
> This could also lead to the creation of scriptable command line tools for Maintain.  This would be a huge boon to admins when a virus hits, being able to lookup owners via Mac and IP address and inform them and disable the hosts at the same time.
