I'm building a new ONTAP-based solution, and for the present, I do not intend for it to perform any changes to one's storage environment. I'm still learning the way the API works and I don't have a deep NetApp background (yet!), so bear with me. What I'm looking for and have so far not had luck finding is this: I'd like a simple list of the api-* roles which are READ-ONLY. I want to then give guidance to my customers so that they are comfortable putting something new into their environment that not only does not intend to make changes to the environment, but CANNOT make changes. I started going through API docs and quickly found that there's 100's of roles, and not all of them are obvious as to whether they grant write access or not.
In case it helps, the scope of what I'm doing can simply be summarized as "performance data collection".
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Hi, for a list of read only APIs have a look at this document https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=1011412, it needs to be updated but it could certainly help you for now. It also contains the steps to create a read-only user to monitor a filer in DataFabric Manager and Performance Advisor. Also this link https://communities.netapp.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/75478-32772/system%20manager%20read%20only%20role.docx is another list of read only APIs that might help.
