HPE Nimble Storage SDK for Python

This is a Python Software Development Kit (SDK) for HPE Nimble Storage arrays. The HPE Nimble Storage array has a Representational State Transfer (REST) web service application programming interface (API). The SDK implements a simple client library for communicating with the HPE Nimble Storage REST API. The Python Requests library is being used to communicate with the API over HTTPS.

The SDK provides a pythonic client library to interact with the HPE Nimble Storage REST API. The code abstracts the lower-level API calls into Python objects that you can easily incorporate into any automation or DevOps workflows. Use it to create, modify and delete most resources like volumes, volume collections, initiator groups and more, as well as perform other tasks like snapshotting, cloning, restoring data, etc.


See install, using and example workflows for more elaborate examples.
