API Call to do save new dbsnapshot?

Is there an example API call to kick off a dbsnapshot?  I want to schedule hourly DB snapshots, if possible.  The entire gridmaster backup hourly was causing issues with API calls.  Im hoping the dbsnapshot will be a bit lighter and faster and will not cause interruption.

Hi,

 

You can a snapshot using the following WAPI:

curl -k -u username:password --location --request POST 'https://grid-masterwapi/v2.10/dbsnapshot?_function=save_db_snapshot' 
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{
    "comment" : "Testing WAPI"
}'

Hope you find this helpful,

Krishna Vasudevan

Hi,

 

Could you please change the URL to

 

https://<labgridmaster>/wapi/v2.7.3/dbsnapshot?_function=save_db_snapshot

That worked, but needed to make slight change to the params...

 

 

POST https://<labgirdmaster>/wapi/v2.7.3/dbsnapshot?_function=save_db_snapshot&comment="test wapi"

 

 

it returns a "_ref" as expected.

Here is what it looks like in Python.  Pretty simple.

 

 

 

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import http.client
import time

 

dt = time.strftime("%Y-%m-%d_%H.%M.%S")
fn = 'HourlySnapshot-{}'.format(dt)

 

conn = http.client.HTTPSConnection("<FQDN>")
payload = ''
headers = {
'Authorization': 'Basic <TOKEN>',
}


baseurl="/wapi/v2.7.3/dbsnapshot?_function=save_db_snapshot&comment="+fn


conn.request("POST", baseurl, payload, headers)
res = conn.getresponse()
data = res.read()
print(data.decode("utf-8"))
