Automate the download of feeds with Admin API

Summary: You want to download the feed files from the GSA automatically using the Admin API

Fix: You can use the Admin API to get a list of feed data sources and detailed information about feeds from a data source.

A sample feed entry ID looks like this:

    <gsa:content name=’entryID’>

When you know the feed entry name, you can download it through an authenticated HTTP GET request:

http://<host>:8000/EnterpriseController#a=viewFeeds&actionType=showFeed&entryName=<feed name>

Download links are available only for the latest 5 feeds for a data source.

The download link may be unavailable if the feed was deleted or the data source was destroyed.
