The HPE Nimble Storage SDK for Python (client library) is a utility that can be leveraged to manage HPE Nimble Storage arrays.

Project description

HPE Nimble Storage SDK for Python

This is a Python Software Development Kit (SDK) for HPE Nimble Storage arrays. The HPE Nimble Storage array has a Representational State Transfer (REST) web service application programming interface (API). The SDK implements a simple client library for communicating with the HPE Nimble Storage REST API. The Python Requests library is being used to communicate with the API over HTTPS.

The SDK provides a pythonic client library to interact with the HPE Nimble Storage REST API. The code abstracts the lower-level API calls into Python objects that you can easily incorporate into any automation or DevOps workflows. Use it to create, modify and delete most resources like volumes, volume collections, initiator groups and more, as well as perform other tasks like snapshotting, cloning, restoring data, etc.


See the documentation on how to install, use and some pre-cooked workflows for more elaborate examples.

The HPE Nimble Storage SDK for Python supports NimbleOS 5.0 or later and requires a recent version of Requests along with Python 3.6 or newer.


HPE Nimble Storage SDK for Python is supported by HPE when used with HPE Nimble Storage arrays on valid support contracts. Please send an email to to get started with any issue you might need assistance with. Engage with your HPE representative for other means on how to get in touch with Nimble support directly.


Contributing guidelines are available in the official documentation.
