I have been led to believe that all of the interactions in the ONTAP System Manager UI map to API calls but I cannot seem to find the call that toggles visibility of the .snapshot directory as seen in the 'Configure Snapshot Copy Settings' dialogue after selecting Storage > Volume > VOLUME_NAME.
I am no web developer but was able to identify the component in the console of my browser (id="gwt-debug-netapp-clSnapshotConfigureDialogEnableScheduleCheckBox") but it ended up not being so helpful to me.
Thanks @mbeattie . Promising, as this looks like it toggles what I want. All of the automation I've written so far is in python.
I am not familiar with ZAPI a bit of searching did not turn up much but I did find "... NetApp tools or proprietary ZAPI via the ONTAP SDK". Then I found post from 2008 of someone having trouble running a secure connection using perl scripts.
Is ZAPI some interface that's addressable only via some non-restful interface?
