ui_call(method, url_suffix, params=None, data=None, **kwargs)

Used to send Actifio desktop rest calls.

  • method – type of rest call to make. ie. GET, POST
  • input_dictionary – python object to be converted to json
  • url_suffix – What follows actifio in the UI call. i.e. https://<some_hostname>/actifio/<url_suffix here>

ActResponse object of request


Turn a cli command into rest method, url, and params. Argument should be the first parameter.

Method and url return are strings while params is a dictionary. Argument should be the first command because barring documenting and updating all valueless keynames (i.e. -force -nowait etc.) this encoder cannot figure out what parameters are switches and which expect a value. :param operation: The full operation to be converted. ex. “udsinfo lshost 1234 -filtervalue some=thing&also=this :return: method (str), url (str), params (dict)
