Re: RESTAPI for Cloning LUNs from a Snapshot copy in a volume

As there is no restApi from cloning lun from volume

so i use ZAPI and generate the xml structure to clone the lun and then use that xml code in proxy-api request.

Hope this will help. 

 

api = NaElement("volume-clone-create")

api.child_add_string("junction-path","/test_clone")
api.child_add_string("parent-snapshot","test-snap")
api.child_add_string("parent-volume","vol_test2")
api.child_add_string("volume","test_clone")
api.child_add_string("volume-type","RW")

 

xo = s.invoke_elem(api)

Re: RESTAPI for Cloning LUNs from a Snapshot copy in a volume

there no direct Rest-Api for this, but  you can achieve this by using RestApi+ZAPI

first you have to create a xml or json body for cloing the lun from snapshot

{'api': {'clone-create':
{'destination-path': “dest”,
'snapshot-name': “snap_name”,
'source-path': “src”,
'volume': “volname”}}}

 

then pass payload to Rest-Api:

post /1.0/ontap/storage-vms/{key}/advanced/jobs/proxy-api
