Software Development Kit (SDK) and API Discussions


Hi Experts,


I am trying out for some automation with Python, as i am new to Netapp i would like to know the procedure in order to write python scripts to pull some hardware information on the filer. so need your help on it.


Which API/tools to be used for ontap version 8.1.4p8 7 mode .

How to install the tool/API, how to invoke a script from the management server.



Any help is appreciated.


Thanks and Regards,

Santosh S


Re: Python

Hello Santosh,


You'll want to get started with the NetApp Manageability SDK.  In the package is documentation for the libraries and sample code for, among others, Python.  You will also want to look at the ZAPI documentation which will describe the APIs available, what they do, and how to use them.


Hope that helps.

Re: Python


You can also try Zexplore Development Interface from same SDK package and generate examples of code, in python, for each api you want.
