Authentication

Provide your credentials when instantiating client:

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

Examples

List Projects

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

projects = manager.list_projects()
for project in projects:
    print(project)

List Plans

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

plans = manager.list_plans()
for plan in plans:
    print(plan)
    if 'cpus' in plan.specs:
        print(plan.specs['cpus'][0]['count'])

Creating a Device

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

device = manager.create_device(project_id='project-id',
                               hostname='node-name-of-your-choice',
                               plan='baremetal_1', facility='ewr1',
                               operating_system='ubuntu_18_04')
print(device)

Checking the Status and Rebooting a Device

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

device = manager.get_device('device-id')
print(device.state)
device.reboot()

Listing all Devices Limiting to 50 per Page

Packet API defaults to a limit of 10 per page

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")
params = {
    'per_page': 50
}
devices = manager.list_devices(project_id='project_id', params = params)
print(devices)

Updating a Device

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

device = manager.get_device('device-id')
device.hostname = "test02"
device.description = "new description"

device.update()

Deleting a Device

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

device = manager.get_device('device-id')
device.delete()

Creating a Device Batch

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

batch01 = packet.DeviceBatch({
            "hostname": "batch01",
            "quantity": 2,
            "facility": "ams1",
            "operating_system": "centos_7",
            "plan": "baremetal_0",
        })

device_batch = manager.create_batch(project_id="project_id", params=[batch01])
print(device_batch)

Creating a Volume

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

volume = manager.create_volume(project_id="project-id",
                                description="volume description",
                                plan="storage_1",
                                size="100",
                                facility="ewr1",
                                snapshot_count=7,
                                snapshot_frequency="1day")
print(volume)

Attaching and Detaching a Volume

import packet
import time

manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")
volume = manager.get_volume("volume_id")

volume.attach("device_id")

while True:
    if manager.get_device("device_id").state == "active":
        break
    time.sleep(2)

volume.detach()

Creating and Restoring a Volume Snapshot

import packet
import time

manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

volume = manager.get_volume("volume_id")
volume.create_snapshot()

while True:
    if manager.get_volume(volume.id).state == "active":
        break
    time.sleep(2)

snapshots = manager.get_snapshots(volume.id)
volume.restore(snapshots[0].timestamp)

Listing Project IP Addresses

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

ips = manager.list_project_ips("project_id")
for ip in ips:
    print(ip.address)

Creating a Project for an Organization

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

project = manager.create_organization_project(
    org_id="organization_id",
    name="Integration Tests",
    customdata={"tag": "QA"}
)
print(project)

Creating a VLAN

import packet
manager = packet.Manager(auth_token="yourapiauthtoken")

vlan = manager.create_vlan(project_id="project_id", facility="ewr1")
print(vlan)
