Installation

The fastest way to install PyVSS is to use pip:

pip install pyvss

If you have PyVSS installed and want to upgrade to the latest version you can run:

pip install --upgrade pyvss

This will install PyVSS as well as all dependencies.

You can also just download the tarball. Once you have the py-vss directory structure on your workstation, you can just run:

cd <path_to_py-vss>
python setup.py install

macOS

XCode is required if you are planning to interact with VSKEY-STOR via WebdavClient.

xcode-select --install
curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/ez_setup.py -o - | python
python setup.py install --prefix=/opt/setuptools
sudo easy_install pyvss
sudo easy_install webdavclient

Linux

Additional libraries are required iif you are planning to interact with VSKEY-STOR via WebdavClient.

sudo apt install libxml2-dev libxslt-dev python-dev
sudo apt install libcurl4-openssl-dev python-pycurl
sudo easy_install pyvss
sudo easy_install webdavclient

Windows

Windows users, download and install Python Releases for Windows prior running pip.

Microsoft Visual Studio Express or Microsoft Visual C++ is required if you are planning to interact with VSKEY-STOR via WebdavClient.

easy_install.exe pyvss
easy_install.exe webdavclient

Docker

For more information refer to the Docker section.

Use

Create an instance of VssManager passing your ITS Private Cloud API access token and your are all set to start calling any of the self-descriptive methods included:

from pyvss.manager import VssManager
vss = VssManager(tk='api_token')

# list vms
vms = vss.get_vms()

# list folders
folders = vss.get_folders()

# networks
networks = vss.get_networks()

# domains
domains = vss.get_domains()

# power cycle vm
vss.power_cycle_vm(uuid='<uuid>')

# create vm
req = vss.create_vm(os='ubuntu64Guest', built='os_install',
                    description='Testing python wrapper',
                    folder='group-v6736', bill_dept='EIS', disks=[100, 100])
uuid = vss.wait_for_request(req['_links']['request'], 'vm_uuid', 'Processed')

# creating multiple vms
reqs = vss.create_vms(count=3, name='python', os='ubuntu64Guest', bill_dept='EIS',
        description='Testing multiple deployment from python wrapper',
        folder='group-v6736', built='os_install')
uuids = [vss.wait_for_request(r['_links']['request'], 'vm_uuid', 'Processed') for r in reqs]

# power on recently created vms
for uuid in uuids:
   vss.power_on_vm(uuid)

# create snapshot
req = vss.create_vm_snapshot(uuid='5012abcb-a9f3-e112-c1ea-de2fa9dab90a',
                             desc='Snapshot description',
                             date_time='2016-08-04 15:30',
                             valid=1)
snap_id = vss.wait_for_request(req['_links']['request'], 'snap_id', 'Processed')

# revert to snapshot
req = vss.revert_vm_snapshot(uuid, snap_id)

An alternative is to generate a token from within the VssManager class and this can be done by setting the following environment variables

export VSS_API_USER='username'
export VSS_API_USER_PASS='username_password'

Then, from the VssManager call the get_token method as follows:

from pyvss.manager import VssManager
vss = VssManager()
vss.get_token()
