Description: CVPySDK
=======

CVPySDK is a Python Package for Commvault Software.

CVPySDK uses Commvault REST API to perform operations on a Commcell via WebConsole.


Requirements
------------

- Python 2.7 or above
- `requests <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/requests/>`_ Python package
- `future <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/future>`_ Python package
- `xmltodict <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/xmltodict>`_ Python package
- Commvault Software v11 SP7 or later release with WebConsole installed


Installing CVPySDK
------------------

CVPySDK can be installed directly from PyPI using pip:

>>> pip install cvpysdk


CVPySDK is available on GitHub `here <https://github.com/CommvaultEngg/cvpysdk>`_

It can also be installed from source.

After downloading, from within the ``cvpysdk`` directory, execute:

>>> python setup.py install


Using CVPySDK
-------------

Login to Commcell:
>>> from cvpysdk.commcell import Commcell
>>> commcell = Commcell(webconsole_hostname, commcell_username, commcell_password)

Print all clients:
>>> print(commcell.clients)

Get a client:
>>> client = commcell.clients.get(client_name)

Get an agent:
>>> agent = client.agents.get(agent_name)

Get an instance:
>>> instance = agent.instances.get(instance_name)

Browsing content at instance level:
>>> paths, dictionary = instance.browse(path='c:\\', show_deleted=True)

Browsing content of a instance in a specific time range:
>>> paths, dictionary = instance.browse(path='f:\\', from_time='2010-04-19 02:30:00', to_time='2014-12-20 12:00:00')

Searching a file in instance backup content:
>>> paths, dictionary = instance.find(file_name="*.csv")

Get a backupset:
>>> backupset = instance.backupsets.get(backupset_name)

Run backup for a backupset:
>>> job = backupset.backup()

Browsing content at backupset level:
>>> paths, dictionary = backupset.browse(path='c:\\', show_deleted=True)

Browsing content of a backupset in a specific time range:
>>> paths, dictionary = backupset.browse(path='f:\\', from_time='2010-04-19 02:30:00', to_time='2014-12-20 12:00:00')

Searching a file in backupset backup content:
>>> paths, dictionary = backupset.find(file_name="*.csv")

Get a subclient:
>>> subclient = backupset.subclients.get(subclient_name)

Run backup for a subclient:
>>> job = subclient.backup(backup_level, incremental_backup, incremental_level)

Browsing content at subclient level:
>>> paths, dictionary = subclient.browse(path='c:\\', show_deleted=True)

Browsing content of a subclient in a specific time range:
>>> paths, dictionary = subclient.browse(path='f:\\', from_time='2010-04-19 02:30:00', to_time='2014-12-20 12:00:00')

Searching a file in subclient backup content:
>>> paths, dictionary = subclient.find(file_name="*.txt")

Run restore in place job for a subclient:
>>> job = subclient.restore_in_place(paths, overwrite, restore_data_and_acl)

Run restore out of place job for a subclient:
>>> job = subclient.restore_out_of_place(client, destination_path, paths, overwrite, restore_data_and_acl)

Job Operations:
>>> job.pause() # Suspends the Job
>>> job.resume() # Resumes the Job
>>> job.kill() # Kills the Job
>>> job.status # Current Status the Job -- Completed / Pending / Failed / .... / etc.
>>> job.is_finished # Job finished or not -- True / False
>>> job.delay_reason # Job delay reason (if any)
>>> job.pending_reason # Job pending reason (if any)


Uninstalling
------------

On Windows, if CVPySDK was installed using an ``.exe`` or ``.msi``
installer, simply use the uninstall feature of "**Add/Remove Programs**" in the
Control Panel.

Alternatively, you can uninstall using the **pip** command:

>>> pip uninstall cvpysdk

Contribution Guidelines
-----------------------

#. We welcome all the enhancements from everyone although we request the developer to follow some guidelines while interacting with the ``CVPySDK`` codebase.

#. Before adding any enhancements/bug-fixes, we request you to open an Issue first.

#. The SDK team will go over the Issue and notify if it is required or already been worked on.

#. If the Issue is approved, the contributor can then make the changes to their fork and open a pull request.

Pull Requests
*************
- CVPySDK has 2 active branches, namely:
- **master**
- **dev**

* where the other branches refer to the already released code / branched code, which may only get some bug-fixes, with no active development
- SP7
- SP8
- SP9
- SP10
- SP11
- SP12
- SP13

- The contributor should *Fork* the **dev** branch, and make their changes on top of it, and open a *Pull Request*
- The **master** branch will then be updated with the **dev** branch, once everything is verified

**Note:** The SDK team will not accept any *Pull Requests* on the **master** branch

Coding Considerations
*********************

- All python code should be **PEP8** compliant.
- All changes should be consistent with the design of the SDK.
- The code should be formatted using **autopep8** with line-length set to **99** instead of default **79**.
- All changes and any new methods/classes should be properly documented.
- The doc strings should be of the same format as existing docs.

Code of Conduct
***************

Everyone interacting in the **CVPySDK** project's codebases, issue trackers,
chat rooms, and mailing lists is expected to follow the
`PyPA Code of Conduct`_.
