Build Tests Go Report Card Latest Release Go Reference go.mod Go version

govmomi

A Go library for interacting with VMware vSphere APIs (ESXi and/or vCenter).

In addition to the vSphere API client, this repository includes:

  • govc - vSphere CLI

  • vcsim - vSphere API mock framework

  • toolbox - VM guest tools framework

Compatibility

This library is built for and tested against ESXi and vCenter 6.5, 6.7 and 7.0.

It may work with versions 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0, but neither are officially supported.

Documentation

The APIs exposed by this library very closely follow the API described in the VMware vSphere API Reference Documentation. Refer to this document to become familiar with the upstream API.

The code in the govmomi package is a wrapper for the code that is generated from the vSphere API description. It primarily provides convenience functions for working with the vSphere API. See godoc.org for documentation.

Binaries and Docker Images for govc and vcsim
