Datasets API

    Is there an API to check the existing datasets on an Engine? If the dataset that I'm looking for is not there, is there an API to create the dataset?

    Hi Shamanth,
    Yes there is an API for your requirements.
    You can see details of the API calls using the URL: http://<DelphixIP>/api.  The available API documentation is available here: https://docs.delphix.com/docs/reference/web-service-api-guide.
    You should also take a look at dxToolkit, an opensource wrapper around the Delphix REST API, which simplifies automation: https://github.com/delphix/dxtoolkit/blob/master/README.md

    You can also use the command line interface to display the REST details that get passed to the engine, which will help you to develop what you need.  CLI documentation here: https://docs.delphix.com/docs/reference/command-line-interface-guide/command-line-interface-overview  

    To use the CLI simply ssh to your engine: ssh delphix_admin@<delphix_ip>
    in the command line type setopt trace=true
    type database
    type ls
    That should display the REST command for displaying all the datasets.

    I hope that helps.
