Project description

https://pypip.in/v/pyHyperV/badge.png https://pypip.in/d/pyHyperV/badge.png

Simple client for calling HyperV orchestrator runbooks in python.

Installation

Using pip:

$ pip install pyHyperV

Import & Initialize pyHyperV

import pyHyperV

orchestratorEndpoint = "http://hostname.local:81/Orchestrator2012/Orchestrator.svc"
username = "domain\\username"
password = "password"

o = pyHyperV.orchestrator(orchestratorEndpoint, username, password)

Execute Runbook

pyHyperV.orchestrator.Execute(runbookID, runbookParameters, dictionary=False)

You can send the parameters to orchestrator using the parameter ID or the parameter name.

Using Parameter IDs

Example of sending using the parameter ID:

runbookID = '285f017e-bc97-4b03-a999-64e08065769e'

runbookParameters = {
     'f90e6468-31d3-4aa8-9d50-f8bf5bf689e2' : 'value',
     'edb8d27d-38ad-4d29-a255-30d8360a3852' : 'value',
     'b61abea1-4001-42fd-99b5-470acc5c1386' : 'value',
     '32725695-0b25-47e0-abbe-b28e22eca8ad' : 'value',
}

o.Execute(runbookID, runbookParameters)

Using Parameter Names

To send a request using the parameter names indead of the IDs, add the dictionary=True flag. The parameter names must match the names for each parameter in orchestrator.

Example:

runbookID = '285f017e-bc97-4b03-a999-64e08065769e'

runbookParameters = {
     'HDD'  : '50gb',
     'CPU'  : '2',
     'RAM'  : '2048',
     'OS'   : 'Server2012',
}

o.Execute(runbookID, runbookParameters, dictionary=True)

Response

Successfully initiating a runbook execution will return a 201 status code, along with the orchestrator job ID. The job ID returned can be used to check the status of the job using the GetJobStatus function.

Example Response:

{
'status' : 201,
  'result': {
      'id'               : '3c87fd6c-69f5-41c9-bd55-ec2aa6ec7c64',
      'status'           : 'pending',
      'CreationTime'     : '2014-04-02T12:11:05.617',
      'LastModifiedTime' : '2014-04-02T12:19:08.963',
      }
}

Get Runbooks

pyHyperV.orchestrator.GetRunbooks()
pyHyperV.orchestrator.GetRunbookID(runbookName)

Returns a list of runbooks and their IDs from orchestrator.

Example:

o.GetRunbooks()

{
'status' : 200,
'result' : {
    'Runbook_1' : 'e5944fe0-b600-45d2-a872-0c256594e394'
    'Runbook_2' : 'fd6d6a4b-1e57-40a3-930a-f4eb56394d3f'
    'Runbook_3' : '31451e20-5829-4323-9661-603ff826c852'
    }
}

It is also possible to return a single runbook ID by it’s name:

o.GetRunbookID('Runbook_1')

'e5944fe0-b600-45d2-a872-0c256594e394'

Get Runbook Parameters

pyHyperV.orchestrator.GetParameters(runbookID)

This function returns the parameter names and paramater IDs required by the runbook specified.

Example:

runbookID = '285f017e-bc97-4b03-a999-64e08065769e'

o.GetParameters(runbookID)

Example Response:

{
'status' : 200,
  'result': {
      'HDD' : 'f90e6468-31d3-4aa8-9d50-f8bf5bf689e2',
      'CPU' : 'edb8d27d-38ad-4d29-a255-30d8360a3852',
      'RAM' : 'b61abea1-4001-42fd-99b5-470acc5c1386',
      'OS'  : '32725695-0b25-47e0-abbe-b28e22eca8ad',
      }
}

Get Job Status

pyHyperV.orchestrator.GetJobStatus(jobID)

This function allows you to check the status of an orchestrator job/task.

Example:

jobID = '285f017e-bc97-4b03-a999-64e08065769e'

o.GetParameters(jobID)

Example Response:

{
'status' : 200,
  'result': {
      'id'               : '3c87fd6c-69f5-41c9-bd55-ec2aa6ec7c64',
      'status'           : 'Complete',
      'CreationTime'     : '2014-04-02T12:11:05.617',
      'LastModifiedTime' : '2014-04-02T12:19:08.963',
      }
}

Get Job Instance ID

pyHyperV.orchestrator.GetJobInstance(jobID)

Returns the job instance ID. This ID can then be used in other functions such as GetInstanceParameters.

Example:

jobID = '3c87fd6c-69f5-41c9-bd55-ec2aa6ec7c64'

o.GetJobInstance(jobID)

'f4ac97ed-495b-44ae-b547-64611b0d8075'

Get Instance Parameters

pyHyperV.orchestrator.GetInstanceParameters(instanceID)

Returns the instance parameters from orchestrator. This function can be used to get data returned from orchestrator.

Example:

instanceID = 'f4ac97ed-495b-44ae-b547-64611b0d8075'

o.GetInstanceParameters(instanceID)

{
'status' : 200,
'result' : {
    'HDD'  : '50gb',
    'CPU'  : '2',
    'RAM'  : '2048',
    'OS'   : 'Server2012',
    'VM_ID' : 'edb8d27d-38ad-4d29-a255-30d8360a3852',
    'VM_IP' : '127.0.0.1',
    }
}
