Below is the script to achieve bulk devices deletion on Zenoss :

Copy and paste the content in .py format . Make sure file named devicelist.txt is in same directory as this script .

  1. !/usr/bin/env python
  1. import the stuff that zendmd needs and create the dmd context
import Globals
from Products.ZenUtils.ZenScriptBase import ZenScriptBase
from transaction import commit
dmd = ZenScriptBase(connect=True, noopts=True).dmd
  1. import the stuff that zep needs
from Products.Zuul import getFacade, listFacades
from zenoss.protocols.jsonformat import from_dict
from zenoss.protocols.protobufs.zep_pb2 import EventSummary
from Products.ZenEvents.events2.proxy import EventSummaryProxy
  1. function to delete device
def delDevice(host):
zep = getFacade('zep')
zep_host_filter = zep.createEventFilter(element_identifier=host)
zep.closeEventSummaries(eventFilter=zep_host_filter)
dev = dmd.Devices.findDeviceByIdExact(host)
if dev:
dev.deleteDevice()
commit()
  1. read list of devices from a file and delete them if they exist
f = open('devicelist.txt')
lines = f.read().splitlines()
for l in lines:
d = None
d = dmd.Devices.findDevice(l)
if d:
print 'Deleting: %s (%s)' % (d.getDeviceName(), d.getManageIp())
delDevice(l)
else:
print 'Device %s does not exist.' % (l)
f.close()
