View Browser App
This App runs a webserver and exposes two endpoints:
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 github.com/cohesity/cohesity-appspec/sampleapp/viewbrowser
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
Importing the packages:
import ( "github.com/cohesity/app-sdk-go/appsdk", "github.com/cohesity/management-sdk-go/managementsdk" )
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, apiEndpointIp, apiEndpointPort)
App Client in action:
// Get App Settings. appSettings, err := appClient.Settings().GetAppSettings()
managementTokenResponse, err := appClient.TokenManagement().CreateManagementAccessToken() managementAccessToken.AccessToken = managementTokenResponse.AccessToken managementAccessToken.TokenType = managementTokenResponse.TokenType
managementClient = ManagementSdk.NewCohesityClientWithToken(apiEndpointIp, managementAccessToken)
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)
