I am trying to create Protection Policies with DFM CLI commands.
While "dfpm policy list" will show both Provisoning and Protection policies I cannot find a way to create Protection Policies as there is no create option for a "Data Protection" policy type.
Is there a way to do this via CLI?
I have seen some references to using the SDK, but even after evaluating the commands available there i do not see a way to create Protection Policies there either.
I have created a lot of other scripts i need for deployment, but this is the current "brick wall" that is preventing me from finishing a deployment script for OnCommand.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Please check-out the dp-policy APIs. There is no direct way to create a protection policy, but you can copy the pre-defined protection policies with dp-polocy-copy, and then modify the copy with dp-policy-modify.

There is no create cli for data protection polices, instead you should use the COPY cli. Do note, when you copy a policy the schedules are not copied along unlike when its done from the NMC( NetApp Management Console). Below is the help of copy cli.
C:\>dfpm policy copy help
copy -- makes copy of a policy
dfpm policy copy [ -d <description> ] <existing-policy-name-or-id>
-d option can be used to specify description for the
