I am getting following error while running :

RequestError: APIError(action=u'Change the API version to one supported by your version of the Delphix Engine. Review the Release Notes for your Delphix Engine version to determine which API version is supported.', command_output=None, details=u'Invalid API version "1.8.2".', diagnoses=[], id=u'exception.webservices.session.invalid.version', type=u'APIError')

Please advise.

Delphix Engines expose an API which is versioned, you can find the most recent API version supported for each release in the documentation

For instance if you are running a Delphix Engine version, it will support all API versions until 1.8.0 but not higher.

This error message indicates that the script you are using ( is trying to connect to your Delphix Engine using API version 1.8.2 which your Engine does not support.

I believe the API version is linked to the version of delphixpy you are using. Did you install delphix py with the following command?

pip install delphixpy

Hi Eyal,

I did not use the command for installing delphixpy module.

But when I tried pip install delphixpy i got following output:

Requirement already satisfied: delphixpy in ./landshark/lib/python2.7/site-packages

The engine version is and supporting API version should be 1.8.1.

Could you please tell me how to remove 1.8.2 and install 1.8.1.

You can force the version number by specifying it in the import statements of the script, like so:

Hi Adam,

I forced the version to 1.8.1 and got following error.
File "/home/delphix/landshark/lib/python2.7/site-packages/delphixpy/v1_8_1/web/group/", line 67, in get_all
    assert API_VERSION == engine.API_VERSION, "Wrong API version (%s) for parameter 'engine' (%s)" % (API_VERSION, engine.API_VERSION)
AssertionError: Wrong API version (1.8.1) for parameter 'engine' (1.8.2)

I am trying to setup and experiment Delphix Python module and using the default trial setup that has got API version as 1.8.1 and Engine version 

I am not able to understand why in case of 1.8.1 I am still getting error.

Please advise.
