This getting started guide is written for users of the Hitachi Configuration Manager who are interested in learning about the REST API.  By following this guide, you'll learn how to:

  • install the Configuration Manager REST API
  • perform simple REST API calls to
    • get a list of managed storage subsystems
    • get information about a storage subsystem
    • allocate volumes
  • obtain a number of Python scripts demonstrating use of the REST API


Note: Your own installation of HCS and the HCS REST API is not required.  If you prefer, jump right to the REST API samples (link to be added).
