Automating ONTAP with ONTAPI(ZAPI) or NMSDK? Start your move to ONTAP REST API
Brand new to ONTAP automation? Get Started with ONTAP REST API
ONTAP 9.11.1 completes ONTAP REST API feature gaps and continues to expand the capabilitiesof modernizing and automating ONTAP storage infrastructure. It includes several new features, enhancingyourability tosimplifythe deployment and management of ONTAP system.

SnapVault Policysupport in REST API and APIs for managingIP subnetcapability
APIs to create and managebulk snapshot copies. E.g., a Snapshot copy with the same name on multiple volumes in one request
Transitioning toONTAP REST from ONTAPI (ZAPI):
ONTAP 9.11.1 completes feature gaps and ONTAPI calls now have corresponding REST API equivalent.
Mapping Documentationis also available to help identify equivalent REST endpoint for an existing ONTAPI call.
Programmatic way to identify the ONTAPI Usage in a cluster and to find equivalent REST APIs is published inGitHub site
