Unofficial ruby bindings for VMware® vCloud Director's rest APIs.
Note: at this stage both v.1.5 and v.5.1 are supported. It defaults to v.5.1 but it's possible to specify _api_version="1.5".
See vCloud API for details.
This plugin is distributed as a Ruby Gem. To install it, run:
gem install vcloud-rest
Depending on your system's configuration, you may need to run this command with root privileges.
vcloud-rest is tested against ruby 2.1.2, 2.0.0, 1.9.3 and ruby-head.

A (mostly complete) example can be found in
Debug can be enabled setting the following environment variables:
- VCLOUD_REST_DEBUG_LEVEL: to specify the log level (e.g., INFO, DEBUG)
- VCLOUD_REST_LOG_FILE: to specify the output file (defaults to STDOUT)
Note: in order to run tests with ruby 1.8.x you need to export RUBYOPT="rubygems"
Write new tests
Tests are now managed using VCR and thus real interactions are recorded and replayed.
In order to write new tests the following steps are required:
- create a file test_credentials.yml
- create a new test entry specifying a new VCR cassette my_test_case.yml
- review and anonymize data if necessary under spec/fixtures/vcr_cassettes/my_test_case.yml
Note: values in test_credentials.yml are automatically anonymized.
