Link Timeflow and Branch using RestAPI

  • 1.  Link Timeflow and Branch using RestAPI

    Posted 10 days ago
    Hi,
    I am trying to put together a script that gives a full chain of dependencies for a given snapshot in one command.  This is building on the dxapikit scripts.

    I am very close to having a working script, where I have found that I am running into problems is when you have a TimeFlow that has no more snapshots assigned to it, but is being pinned by a Self-Service Branch.

    Is there a way for me to tell what Self-Service Branch is dependent on a given TimeFlow?  I have done some poking around in the CLI and RestAPI, but there is nothing obvious jumping out at me.

    Thanks
    Jim

    Is there no way to do this via the RestAPI?  

    Also interested in if you can tell if a snapshot is tied to a bookmark, and the name of that bookmark.

    Hello Jim,

    I assisted you a while back on the snapshot_details.sh script and see that you want to expand the functionality to get the full dependency chain even within Self-Service objects.

    I'll will modify that script and respond back here with the respective API calls and logic to capture that data.  Give me about a week to get this done due to my other commitments, let me know if that timing is not acceptable.   Potentially, some else might respond earlier.

    Regards,

    I already have the script put together to capture the chain.  I can share it with you.

    Was looking for something that would be more friendly to a self-service user so they can tie a snapshot/timeflow back to a branch or bookmark that they would be able to take action on.

    Do you want to schedule a zoom session for me to demo the script I put together?
