    ref is the vdb cotainer name eg: ORACLE_DB_CONTAINER-12.

    Start and StopParameters are optional. Both operations start and stop will work without feeding these parameters.

    Hello Ramesh,
                         Adding to Adam's answer, to call delphix apis you need to use VDB reference names. You can find reference name for VDBs by using below command, on Delphix CLI.
