I don't believe there is a workflow that's been shared that does exactly what you've requested. That said, there are several workflows that get close, but I think those are for clustered ONTAP, not 7-mode. I'm not sure if you've looked through all of the "Pirate Packs" that are shared on the WFA communities, but it might be worthwhile doing so. Here is a LINK to see the available Pirate Packs. You can also click on the 'Workflow Examples' category, and look at the documents to see the other examples of workflows that have been shared.
Thanks- I got the Clone one to work (developed my own workflow), working on the Map Lun part and feel comfortable that will work as well. Found some issues with WFA2.1, installe d 2.0.1 and had greater success.
One thing that would be VERY helpful- can someone publish the database schema of objects your can SQL against when creating queries in the user inputs? I find I have to select * and test to see what fields I have available, or dig through the dictionairies. There should be a reference doc out there- is there one? Must be. Link someone?

What issue did you run into with WFA2.1 that you had to switch to WFA2.0.1?

There is sure an online Reference Manual located at Help -> Reference Manual where you can look at Dictionary items. But with WFA2.1 there is a very useful feature available call "SQL query auto-complete" which can help you a lot. Give it a try, you'll love it.
If this post resolved your issue, help others by selecting ACCEPT AS SOLUTION or adding a KUDO.
Actually the sql autocomplete wasnt context aware, was nice but needs improvement. Also I found that if I select t1., t2. from two joined tables that both contained a "name" field, only the second one would be returned.
I will look in the ref doc under dictionary- thx. Got enough query building in where I got the hang of the fields.
I've done a lot of schema work and I find MySQL Workbench very useful for prototyping queries and browsing the data. It's handy for performance tuning queries too if you have complex ones.
Either install it locally, or edit the mysql/my.ini on your WFA server and comment out the bind-address=localhost setting at the end and restart the DB to allow remote connections. Then connect using wfa/Wfa123. You can view data but you can't change data except for the playground database.
Yes, once I downgraded to 2.0.1 I’ve got all the snapshot info I need.
My workflow is to a) clone a volume that contains LUNs that also has a snapshot on the volume; b) map the lun in the new clone to an existing iGroup on the associated array to a user-inputted number with default 15.
Step A is complete. The problem I’m having is the the map lun workflow requires a volume/lun that already exists to get by the planning stage in preview/execute. How can I tell the map lun workflow to use the lun from the volume I just cloned?
2. The second scenario is when you are not using the certified command for "Clone Volume".
This is possible but will be tricky to define the LUN in the cloned volume. That's because the LUN gets auto-created behind the scenes as part of some other action i,.e Clone Volume. I can try explaining if you are not using the certified command only.
I will be using the certified commands if at all possible. What you show is exactly what I want to accomplish, although the user inputs I want to make queries because I want the user to have drop-downs and not be able to select bad entries.
Quick question- since I now have 2.0.1, can I upgrade to 2.1 by simple install or do I need to un-install 2.0.1 first?
