The WMI Proxy ID should be visable in the Cluster Manager Settings under the WMI Proxies tab
In order to add a WMI managed device via API you are required to enter the WMI Proxy ID, the ID is not made available anywhere in the product UI or CLI other than make a MySQL query, which is expressly stated as not a recomended process for customers to perform.
Currently the only way to get the id is add a WMI device via the NMS UI, then query that Device's device ID via the API endpoint /api/v2/devices/<device-id-with-WMI-working>
Rather than bury this id which is required to use the API, it should be displayed for admin users in the UI on the WMI Proxies tab.
