VMware::vCloudDirector2 - Interface to VMWare vCloud Directory REST API

VERSION

version 0.106

SYNOPSIS

    # THIS IS AT AN EARLY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT - PROTOTYPING REALLY
    # IT MAY CHANGE DRAMATICALLY OR EAT YOUR DATA.

    use VMware::vCloudDirector2

    my $vcd = VMware::vCloudDirector2->new(
        hostname   => $host,
        username   => $user,
        password   => $pass,
        orgname    => $org,
        ssl_verify => 0,
    );
    my @org_list = $vcd->org_list;

Attributes

hostname

Hostname of the vCloud server. Must have a vCloud instance listening for https on port 443.

username

Username to use to login to vCloud server.

password

Password to use to login to vCloud server.

orgname

Org name to use to login to vCloud server - this defaults to System.

timeout

Command timeout in seconds. Defaults to 120.

default_accept_header

The default MIME types to accept. This is automatically set based on the information received back from the API versions.

ssl_verify

Whether to do standard SSL certificate verification. Defaults to set.

ssl_ca_file

The SSL CA set to trust packaged in a file. This defaults to those set in the Mozilla::CA

debug

Set debug level. The higher the debug level, the more chatter is exposed.

Defaults to 0 (no output) unless the environment variable VCLOUD_API_DEBUG is set to something that is non-zero. Picked up at create time in BUILD()

Methods

org_list

Returns a set of VMware::vCloudDirector2::Object each containing one of the vCloud Orgs on the system (or if using this in user mode the single org you can see).

query

Returns a VMware::vCloudDirector2::Object containing the query result of the query against the platform.

DESCRIPTION

Thinish wrapper of the VMware vCloud Director REST API.

This differs from VMware::vCloudDirector in that it uses the JSON flavoured version of the API, which has subtly different naming conventions (which is why I didn't try to make the code handle both flavours), but is much easier to work with when doing write operations.

It also can do write operations - as well as the other issues in VMware::vCloudDirector it looks like the write operations - PUT, POST and DELETE have never worked!

THIS IS AT AN EARLY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT - PROTOTYPING REALLY - AND MAY CHANGE DRAMATICALLY OR EAT YOUR DATA.

The lack of documentation reflects the stage in development...
