problem.get

Description

integer/array problem.get(object parameters)

The method allows to retrieve problems according to the given parameters.

This method is for retrieving unresolved problems. It is also possible, if specified, to additionally retrieve recently resolved problems. The period that determines how old is “recently” is defined in AdministrationGeneral. Problems that were resolved prior to that period are not kept in the problem table. To retrieve problems that were resolved further back in the past, use the event.get method.

This method may return problems of a deleted entity if these problems have not been removed by the housekeeper yet.
