ViPR Command

ViPR Command provides command line interface for ViPR Controller / COPRHD REST APIs.

Contents

Introduction

Application that provides unix/linux shell-like command line interface (CLI) for ViPR APIs. It uses WADL & XSD to auto generate the interface. It can be used with any ViPR version that has WADL and XSD available.

Dependencies

ViPR: 2.3
Python: 2.7, 3.2.5, 3.4 (Additional modules: requests, configparser)

Install Setuptools

Follow these steps only if you have python 2.7. If you don't know what version of python you have, type in the commnad line "python --version".

  1. Download the code for Setuptools.
  2. Open a new Command Line.
  3. Navigate to the folder where that code is being stored.
  4. Run the code by typing "python ez_setup.py".
  5. Close Command line window.

Install

  1. Copy downloaded package to any location
  2. Windows & Linux only: Open cmd/terminal prompt
  3. Navigate to ViPR command downloaded folder.
  4. Type python setup.py install to install dependent modules.
  5. Navigate to "config" folder and enter your ViPR host in cli_config.ini.
  6. Type viprcommand in cmd/terminal prompt and press ENTER. The log in prompt appears:
    login as:
    Type ViPR username and press ENTER. A password prompt appears:
    Password:
    Type password and press ENTER. Instead you could also run
viprcommand -username {user} -password {pswd}

Context tree

After logging into ViPR Command it will initially land in root context. From there using "cd" command (explained below) one can navigate to different contexts and sub-contexts. There are 3 components to each context: resources, sub-context and actions.

Resources: these are ViPR resources in current context, identified by URN. To navigate to resource, use "cd {resource_urn}".

Sub-context: these are children to current context. For example: if you are in "block" context, "exports", "volumes" are some of its sub-contexts. To navigate to sub-context, use cd {sub_context}.

Actions: List of actions that can be performed on current context. These are commands by themselves.

Refer to ViPR REST API guide for details on these contexts, actions, payloads etc.

Commands

Log in/Log out from CLI

login

This command will log user to ViPR.

Options
-username
-password

Example

login -username root -password ChangeMe

logout

This command will log out user from ViPR

Unix-like commands

ls

This command will list all resources in current context

ll

This command will list all resources in current context along with their names

cd

This command will change context. If new context starts with "/" it is treated as absolute path.

Arguments
{New_context}

Examples

cd /block/volumes
cd projects

###cd ../cd..
This command will change context to parent (if exists).

find

This command will find all matching context paths for a given resource

Arguments
{Resource_name}

Example

find tenant

quit

This command will exit ViPR Command

REST operations

POST

This command will create resource in current context. You can write xml or json to file and input that to command or provide them as parameters.

Building parameters:-
Parameters are flat view of XML elements. There should be 1 parameter for each required element. All child elements should be typed along with its parents. Ignore XML's root element.
For example:
XML

<block_export_create>
	<clusters>
		<cluster/>
	</clusters>
	<hosts>
		<host/>
	</hosts>
	<initiators>
		<initiator/>
	</initiators>
	<name/>
	<project/>
	<type/>
	<varray/>
	<volumes>
		<volume>
			<id/>
			<lun/>
		</volume>
	</volumes>
</block_export_create>

Parameters:

-name {name} -project name:{project_name} -type cluster -clusters:cluster {cluster_id} -clusters:cluster {cluster_id} -volumes:volume:id {volume_id} -volumes:volume:lun {volume_lun} -varray name:{varray_name}  

If "MIN" in table is 1, then that element is required. If "MAX" in table is "unbounded", that that element can have multiple values.

Arguments
help
json
xml

Examples

POST help  
POST json payload.json  
POST xml payload.xml  

Using paramters: create volume example

POST -name kbvol -project name:kb -size 1GB -varray name:KB_test_varray -vpool name:KB_json_update

PUT

This command will update current resource. This works same as POST.
Arguments
help
json
xml

Examples

PUT help  
PUT json payload.json  
PUT xml payload.xml

GET

This command will return current resource details. By default this command will return data in table format. To format output as xml or json use "accept" option.

Arguments
help

Options

-accept {xml/json}  

Examples

GET -accept xml
GET -accept json

Others

All "Actions" can be run as commands. Run "help" on them and check if they require any parameters.

ViPRCommand:/block/volumes/urn:storageos:Volume:00088e2e-7510-4be7-9a30-75d1bcdc29ab:vdc1/> expand help  
Payload Fields:-  
| NAME     | TYPE      | MIN | MAX |  
| new_size | xs:string | 1   | 1   |  

XML Payload:-  
<?xml version="1.0" ?>  
<volume_expand>  
        <new_size/>  
</volume_expand>

Examples
Expand block volume (Navigate to block volume resource /block/volumes/{id})

expand -new_size 10

Delete volume (Navigate to block volume resource /block/volumes/{id})

deactivate

General rules

  1. "help" will show input fields in table and xml format
  2. Before running command, run "ls" to see what actions are supported
  3. If a field requires URN to be passed you can either send URN or send its name and prefix it with "name". For example: to send project as name -project name:DemoProject
  4. Fields can be repeated if they allow multiple values ("MAX" is "unbounded")
    For example: -cluster name:clusetr1 -cluster name:cluster2

Searching for a resource

Search can be performed on resources if it is listed as "sub-context". For example: to search for a volume by name

cd /block/volumes/search
GET -name vol1

Deleting a resource

Resource can be deleted if "deactivate" is found in "actions"

For example: to delete a block volume

cd /block/volumes
deactivate -id {volume_id}

Using Query Parameters

Query parameters can be sent in command just like other parameters. To get list of query parameters on a command type "help".

For example: to get a zone details by its name

ViPRCommand:/vdc/network-systems/urn:storageos:NetworkSystem:8c7be854-2a08-43f9-bb69-966d98ed278f:vdc1/san-fabrics/1/san-zones/>ls  
Actions:-  
PUT  POST  activate  remove  GET

	Query Parameters:-  
| Name            | Type       |  
| exclude-members | xs:boolean |  
| zone-name       | xs:string  |
