How to decide which NetApp API to use?


I'm often asked by customers or partners which API they should use to get information for their NetApp systems. The most common use-case is that they are putting together a dashboard, which is often multi-platform or multiple layers of the tech stack. I put together a relatively simple flowchart to help determine whether to use the API from Active IQ Digital Advisor, Active IQ Unified Manager, or ONTAP.

I hope this is helpful.
