Oracle OVM rest api example

Oracle OVM rest api example

If you hate the Oracle OVM CLI and having to use expect scripts you may want to look into the web services API.  Note it looks like SOAP will be decommissioned soon so use REST.

$ cat ovm_using_rest.py 
import requests

s=requests.Session()
s.auth=('admin','pwd_removed')
s.verify=False #disables SSL certificate verification

s.headers.update({'Accept': 'application/json', 'Content-Type': 'application/json'})

baseUri='https://ovmm:7002/ovm/core/wsapi/rest'

print "\nServer List:"
print "##############"
r=s.get(baseUri+'/Server')
for i in r.json():
  # do something with the content
  print '{:20} {:20}'.format(i['serverRunState'],i['name'])

print "\nVM List:"
print "########"
r=s.get(baseUri+'/Vm')
for i in r.json():
  # do something with the content
  print '{:20} {:20}'.format(i['vmRunState'],i['name'])
  #print '{name} '.format(name=i['name'])

Output:

$ python ovm_using_rest.py
