The /api/routers endpoint retrieves a list of MikroTik routers that belong to the team associated with the bearer token. Each router object provides detailed information about the router, including its identity, software version, uptime, and last seen details.

The Router Object

idstringThe id field is an autogenerated v4 UUID that uniquely identifies the router.
identitystringThe identity field is the RouterOS identity or hostname of the router.

software_versionstringThe software_version field indicates the current RouterOS version running on the router.
software_idstringThe software_id field is an identifier for the specific software running on the router.
has_pulsebooleanThe has_pulse field indicates if the site is online or offline based on the check-in scheduler.
uptimestringThe uptime field provides the duration for which the router has been running without interruption.
last_seenstringThe last_seen field indicates the time elapsed since the router was last seen.
last_seen_fromstringThe last_seen_from field is the IP address observed during the most recent heartbeat from the router.
routerboardbooleanThe routerboard field indicates if the device is a RouterBOARD model. (false for CHRs)
modelstringThe model field specifies the model of the router.
board_namestringThe board_name field provides the board name of the router.
last_seen_atstringThe last_seen_at field is a timestamp of the last time the router was seen.

Retrieve OEM Information

The /api/routers/{router_id}/oem endpoint allows you to obtain manufacturer data for a given router. This information is maintained by MikroCloud and periodically retrieved from MikroTik. Efforts are made to ensure the data is accurate and extensive, but it is possible that data for particular hardware may not exist.
