vcoclient.py (version 0.1.7)

A simple VeloCloud Orchestrator (VCO) Python client

The idea is to embrace the Linux methodology and to have one VCO client that can be used within a complex workflow under Linux.

The matrix below gives one the vcoclient version on which VCO release it was tested against.

For sanity reasons, only the current VCO release will be used for testing and hence vcoclient (and the workflow_examples) will be updated/maintained accordingly. The current VCO release will be market as bold.

CAUTION: Using a different version of vcoclient against different VCO release, might cause unwanted results and is not recommended.

All tests where performed on a Linux and/or MacOS operation systems. There is no reason why it should not work with Windows but you have been warned.

Useage

Global Environment Variables

To influence program behaviour and avoiding using --options, one can use global environment variables, for some of the options:

Name Example Usage Same as Using Default Value
VCO_HOST export VCO_HOST="vco.domain.net" vcoclient.py --vco="vco.domain.net" None
VCO_USER export VCO_USER="my_username@domain.net" vcoclient.py login --username="my_username@domain.net" None
VCO_PASS export VCO_PASS="MySuperSecretPassword" vcoclient.py login --password="MySuperSecretPassword" None
VCO_COOKIE_PATH export VCO_COOKIE_PATH="/path/where/I/save/cookies/" None (yet) /tmp/
VCO_VERIFY_SSL export VCO_VERIFY_SSL="TRUE" None (yet) False

Global Program Options

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --help

                    {login,logout,edges_get,sysprop_set} ...

A simple VeloCloud Orchestrator (VCO) client via Python

positional arguments:
  {login,logout,edges_get,sysprop_set}

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --vco HOSTNAME        Hostname/IP of VCO
  --output {pandas,json,csv}
                        Pandas tables are used as default output method but
                        one can also use 'json' or csv

One can also use a special os variable called VCO_HOST for --vco, without the need to input the hostname all the time, e.g.:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] export VCO_HOST="192.168.2.55"
[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py edges_get

Login - Method

One needs to authenticate himself/herself via username and password to VCO. A user can be type "operator" or "enterprise" and hence has different rights in VCO.

Please note: Session cookie is getting created as soon as this method gets called. The session cookie gets saved under /tmp/<hostname>.txt, and used later by new method calls (so one does not need to use the login method everytime). As the cookie has no expire date and VCO holds the time on the expiry of the session, it is recommended to execute login method every so often to ensure nothing gets broken over time.

Maybe to-do for the future, to store session time and check accordingly.

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py login --help
usage: vcoclient.py login [-h] --username USERNAME [--password PASSWORD]
                          [--no-operator]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help           show this help message and exit
  --username USERNAME  Username for Authentication
  --password [PASSWORD]
                        Password for Authentication
  --no-operator        Per default we login as operator to VCO. If not, use
                       this flag

Example

Either use the unsecure method to provide a password:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 login --username=super@domain.com --password=VeloCloud123
[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts]

or use the more secure method to provide it:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 login --username=super@domain.com --password
Password:
[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts]

or use VCO_USER and/or VCO_PASS environment variables to pass no login information to the script itself:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] export VCO_USER="super@domain.com"
[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] export VCO_PASS="SuperSecretPassword"
[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 login
[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts]

Logout - Method

The logout method logsout from VCO itself and deletes the session cookie stored under /tmp/<hostname>.txt.

It is best practice to use it after done using different methods with vcoclient.py

Example

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 logout

Get edges - Method

To get a list of all or filtered VeloCloud Edges (VCEs) from VCO. One can --search per value, get only one --name VCE and --filtersonly given keys. Each of the methods (--name, --filters or --search), one can use "|" to find for several values (e.g. to find several VCEs with names Branch1 or Branch2, use ``--name="Branch1|Branch2"). This gives one a powerful option to compare and evaluate several VCEs against each other and use those returned values for another workflow.

--enterpriseid can be used to find all specify VCEs from specific customer in VCO. For msp based users this is a must to use.

Please note: --name, --search and --filtersare all doing a loose search rather then an exact match, meaning you will get more values then maybe requested but you do not need to be very specific for your search. Maybe as a to-do, give different options in the future.

usage: vcoclient.py edges_get [-h] [--name NAME] [--filters FILTERS]
                              [--search SEARCH] [--enterpriseid ID] [--rows_name]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --name NAME        Search Edge/Edges containing the given name
  --filters FILTERS  Returns only given filters out of the returned value.
                     Default all values are returned
  --search SEARCH    Search any data from properties of Edges, e.g. search for
                     USB interfaces
  --enterpriseid ID            Returns the Edges of only that given enterprise. Default
                     all Edges of all enterprises at operator view or all
                     Edges of an enterprise at customer view are returned.
  --rows_name        Returns only the row names from the output result.

Example

To get all VCEs, with all values and keys, use default:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 edges_get
                                                               0                                         1                                         2                                         3

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 edges_get --name="Branch1|Branch-2"
                                                               0                                         1

Another option is to filter a specific value out of the return with --filters option, e.g. if one wants to filter activationKey and activationKeyExpires for all or some Edges:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55  edges_get --filters="activationKey|activationKeyExpires"

                                    Branch1-HA                  Branch-2                  Branch-3                  Branch-4
activationKey              HS7S-QKPA-ZZCC-PG74       LHH3-8B4R-7XVJ-6J3V       JTWH-EHNW-7LUG-YQ9T       YZ8U-CKTY-8MTL-FP4R
activationKeyExpires  2019-05-28T11:53:33.000Z  2019-05-19T16:58:53.000Z  2019-06-01T10:32:39.000Z  2019-06-01T16:10:54.000Z

or one can combine it with --name as well to filter it more specific:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55  edges_get --filters="activationKey|activationKeyExpires" --name="Branch1|Branch-2"
                                    Branch1-HA                  Branch-2
activationKey              HS7S-QKPA-ZZCC-PG74       LHH3-8B4R-7XVJ-6J3V
activationKeyExpires  2019-05-28T11:53:33.000Z  2019-05-19T16:58:53.000Z

Even more, one can search for any value within the VCE properties with --search, let see what if we want to see all values:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 edges_get --search="*"
                                                                        Branch1-HA  ...                                           Branch-4

...

In the background --search flattens the returned JSON and returns all values when * used. One can however, search for specific values as well, e.g. lets search for interface properties with 191. or 10. IPs:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 edges_get --search="191.|10."

                                                     Branch1-HA     Branch-2                  Branch-3                  Branch-4

...

and filter the 'ipAddress' column only for all VCEs (Branch1-HA, Branch-2, Branch-3 or Branch-4):

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py --vco=192.168.2.55 edges_get --search="191.|10." --filters="ipAddress"
                    Branch1-HA     Branch-2     Branch-3 Branch-4
links_0_ipAddress  191.168.1.2  191.168.3.2  191.168.0.5      NaN
links_1_ipAddress  191.168.2.2  191.168.4.2          NaN      NaN
links_2_ipAddress          NaN     10.2.1.2          NaN      NaN
links_3_ipAddress          NaN     10.2.2.2          NaN      NaN

All those outputs can be then converted into CSV or JSON.

Get Customers VCEs (as MSP or Operator) - Method

To get a list of all VCEs as a MSP/Partner or as operator one can use msp_customers_get or operator_customers_get. Same as edges_get method, one can use --search. --filters and --names to narrow down the result accordingly.

Example

The help output for msp_customers_get:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py msp_customers_get --help
usage: vcoclient.py msp_customers_get [-h] [--name NAME] [--filters FILTERS]
                                      [--search SEARCH] [--rows_name]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --name NAME        Search Enterprise/Enterprises containing the given name
  --filters FILTERS  Returns only given filters out of the returned value.
                     Default all values are returned
  --search SEARCH    Search any data from properties of customers, e.g. search
                     for particular edge
  --rows_name        Returns only the row names from the output result.

and the help output for òperator_custmers_get:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py operator_customers_get --help
usage: vcoclient.py operator_customers_get [-h] [--name NAME]
                                           [--filters FILTERS]
                                           [--search SEARCH] [--rows_name]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --name NAME        Search Enterprise/Enterprises containing the given name
  --filters FILTERS  Returns only given filters out of the returned value.
                     Default all values are returned
  --search SEARCH    Search any data from properties of customers, e.g. search
                     for particular edge
  --rows_name        Returns only the row names from the output result.

Here an example (customer names and account numbers obscured on purpose):

Get link metric of a given edge

One can get the link metric of a particular VCE for a given time.

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py edge_get_lm --help
usage: vcoclient.py edge_get_lm [-h] [--filters FILTERS] [--search SEARCH]
                                --edgeid EDGEID [--enterpriseid ENTERPRISEID]
                                --starttime STARTTIME [--endtime ENDTIME]
                                [--rows_name]

Collect link statistics for a VCE between a given period.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --filters FILTERS     Returns only given filters out of the returned value.
                        Default all values are returned
  --search SEARCH       Search for the metric value
  --edgeid EDGEID       Get information for that specific Edge. Edgeid can be
                        found under edges_get method under id.
  --enterpriseid ENTERPRISEID
                        Get information for that specific Edge in that
                        specific customer. EnterpriseId can be either found
                        from *_customers_get method under id or edges_get
                        method under enterpriseId.
  --starttime STARTTIME
                        The start time from when one wants to get the data.
                        Format is in YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM.
  --endtime ENDTIME     The end time from when one wants to get the data.
                        Format is in YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM. End time
                        is default to time now.
  --rows_name           Returns only the row names from the output result.

Example

Get the metric of all the links of a given edge from a given customer in the past until now:

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py edge_get_lm --edgeid=1712 --enterpriseid=214 --starttime="2019-07-21"

Set system properties

System properties of VCO can be changed/added. Only applicable at "operator" mode but needed for on-premiss installation of VCO.

Please Note: Some system properties can break VCO and use this method carefully.

[iddoc@homeserver:/scripts] vcoclient.py sysprop_set --help
usage: vcoclient.py sysprop_set [-h] --name NAME --value VALUE

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  --name NAME    Name of the new/edit system property
  --value VALUE  New value of the system property

Example
