To obtain a list of dSources and VDBs, list available Container (also known as database) objects on the system:
$ curl -X GET -k
-b ~/cookies.txt -H "Content-Type: application/json"
Each database has zero or one source associated with it. This source could be a linked source, indicating that the database is a dSource, or it could be a virtual source, indicating that it is a VDB. If there are no sources, it is a detached dSource. The parentContainer property indicates the reference to the parent container, also indicating that the database is a VDB. To get runtime information about the source associated with the dSource or VDB, use the Source API with a database parameter set to the reference of the database in question.
