Thanks.  I'll go with the if api connects engine running if not engine
down method.  I don't want to use a deprecated method and I'll stick
with whats part of the API.

The RH RHEV REST api documentation [1] looks fairly complete to me, the API is 
identical to oVirt.

I'm in the same boat as Frank.  I've done programming in various
languages since Fortran without the numbers  but only when needed
for my job as an Engineer so I'm not a professional but just trying to
get a job done.  It would be nice to have a full reference so we know
what to provide.  When trying to connect with the api I finally figured
out to use ca_file (like ca-file on the command line).  Raz's reference
is more complete but still leaves a lot out.  The newer equivalent of
Raz's reference seems to be http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-manage
ment/features/infra/python-sdk/.


The Python/Java/Ruby SDKs are simply language specific wrappers around the REST
api. So if you want a full list of all the options available check out the
REST api documentation. You will have to translate a particular REST api
field/feature to the SDK, but all the SDKs are generated from the REST api
interface definition so the naming and everything should be the same.


That makes sense, thanks.  On the other hand I could also not find any 
REST api reference.  Just some pages with examples a la "find it out 
yourself from there"...

The Python/Java/Ruby SDKs are simply language specific wrappers around the REST 
api. So if you want a full list of all the options available check out the 
REST api documentation. You will have to translate a particular REST api 
field/feature to the SDK, but all the SDKs are generated from the REST api 
interface definition so the naming and everything should be the same.

I'm in the same boat as Frank.  I've done programming in various
languages since Fortran without the numbers  but only when needed
for my job as an Engineer so I'm not a professional but just trying to
get a job done.  It would be nice to have a full reference so we know
what to provide.  When trying to connect with the api I finally figured
out to use ca_file (like ca-file on the command line).  Raz's reference
is more complete but still leaves a lot out.  The newer equivalent of
Raz's reference seems to be http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-manage
ment/features/infra/python-sdk/.

I’m pretty sure the examples are all there is at the moment. I spent a while 
looking for reference material a few months ago and haven’t seen anything new 
mentioned in this thread. Between the examples and a couple of questions to the 
list, I managed to piece together what we needed (command-line-driven machine 
creation specific to our needs). 

I am a bit hazy on the specifics of what I did, but I recall that the main 
problem I had to ask about was with order-of-operations issues - it wasn’t 
obvious to me that setting some things out of the expected (by the API) order 
wouldn’t work. IIRC, this had to do with setting boot options.

Best of luck,

[ovirt-users] Looking for Python-SDK documentation

Dear all,

I'm currently lost at finding any documentation about the Python SDK 
(http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-management/features/infra/python-sdk/) 
like provided classes, functions etc..  There are some examples on the 
mentioned page, but I cannot find a complete documentation.  Our oVirt 
server is running CentOS 7 with ovirt-engine-sdk-python installed. 
However there doesn't seem to exist an ovirt-engine-sdk-python-docs 
package and I couldn't find any appropriate link on the oVirt 
documentation pages (http://www.ovirt.org/documentation/).


Any ideas, where the documentation is available?
