It would be nice to access the result data from HW/SW inventory via the REST API.
This can be done with output_format=json today but its not perfectly formatted.
The HW/SW-inventory with output_format=json is very rudimentary, a proper integration into the much better documented REST-API would be nice.
The point "but it's not perfectly formatted" together with a flat and unique object structure and unique object naming and a full view (including configuration parts like mount points, sizes and the fs types (linux, windows), tags and labels, and infos from external sources like VM or Azure for example) is a good idea for using Checkmk as central data source for uploading an external CMDB.
