whilst I tackle with the joys of REST API, has anyone got a simple dxtoolkit command to extract the contents of the Time Point field sown under the <STATUS> Tab for a vdb ?
I need to extract it out into a sql script I am creating.
I believe that dx_get_hierarchy displays this as "dS snapshot", so the combination of dx_get_hierarchy and "grep" might give you what you need
Eyal answer is correct but not in all cases. The question is what you want to see. Time Point field is showing a parent timeflow of the VDB. In the simple case if you just created or refreshed an object - Time Point is showing a parent database point in time used for provision or refresh.
But if you run a rollback operation, same Time Point field will display a parent timeflow of our rollback operation - which is not your parent database but your same VDB.
dx_get_db_env - parent snapshot is always displaying a Parent object snapshot used for creation or refresh - this will be equal to Time Point for for creation / refresh operation ( not sure about timezone )
dx_get_hierarchy - will display dSource snapshot used for VDB
dx_get_vdbsize - this will display all hierarchy of the timeflows so you can use it as well
