View Browser App

This App runs a webserver and exposes two endpoints:



This is to demonstrate how to write an App for Cohesity's App Platform. It also servers as an example for consumption of Cohesity's App and Management Golang SDKs.


In order to successfully build and run Sample App, you are required to have the following setup in your system: Golang

After installing GO, use go get to install the sample app: viewbrowser:

go get

This will also get all the dependencies including Cohesity App and Management Go SDKs.

Container Environment Parameters

The App Container Environment has the following parameters initialized by Cohesity App Server.

HOST_IP  # The Host IP on which the container is running.
APPS_API_ENDPOINT_IP # Cohesity App Server IP.
APPS_API_ENDPOINT_PORT # Cohesity App Server Port.
APP_AUTHENTICATION_TOKEN # Authetication Token to make Cohesity App API calls. 

We use the above variables in various use cases to initialize and make call to App server.

Using App & Management SDK

The Sample App uses Cohesity provides App and Management SDKs to make it easy to write Apps onto Cohesity Management Platform.

Importing the packages:

import (

Init the App Client:

apiEndpointIp = os.Getenv("APPS_API_ENDPOINT_IP")
apiEndpointPort = os.Getenv("APPS_API_ENDPOINT_PORT")
appAuthenticationToken = os.Getenv("APP_AUTHENTICATION_TOKEN")
appClient = CohesityAppSdk.NewAppSdkClient(appAuthenticationToken,

App Client in action:

// Get App Settings.
appSettings, err := appClient.Settings().GetAppSettings()

Get ManagementAccessToken:

managementTokenResponse, err := appClient.TokenManagement().CreateManagementAccessToken() 
managementAccessToken.AccessToken = managementTokenResponse.AccessToken
managementAccessToken.TokenType = managementTokenResponse.TokenType


managementClient = ManagementSdk.NewCohesityClientWithToken(apiEndpointIp, 

Using Management Client to Cohesity Views:

 viewsResult, err := managementClient.Views().GetViews(viewNames, viewBoxNames,
            matchPartialNames, maxCount, maxViewId, includeInactive, tenantIds,
            allUnderHierarchy, viewBoxIds, jobIds, sortByLogicalUsage, matchAliasNames)

Using Management Client to Mount View:

err := appClient.Mount().CreateMount(&mountOptions)
