RSTAPI - Automate Storage Administration Using ONTAP REST API and Ansible

This certification & training course prepares you to automate storage administration of a NetApp® ONTAP® system by using modern REST APIs and Ansible. You learn about the structure of an ONTAP REST API. You write Python programs that use the Python client library to create an aggregate, a storage virtual machine (SVM), a volume, a qtree, a snapshot, and so on. You learn how to use NetApp PowerShell Toolkit scripts that invoke REST API methods to demonstrate popular use case scenarios. You use the modern Ansible framework to automate and deploy storage administration tasks through ONTAP modules. Finally, you use Python programs and Ansible to configure your system for CIFS, NFS, and SAN protocols.

This training includes classroom lecture, coding demonstrations, and hands-on programming activities.
