Build Status

govmomi

A Go library for interacting with VMware vSphere APIs (ESXi and/or vCenter).

For govc, a CLI built on top of govmomi, check out the govc directory.

Compatibility

This library is built for and tested against ESXi and vCenter 5.5.

If you're able to use it against older versions of ESXi and/or vCenter, please leave a note and we'll include it in this compatibility list.

Documentation

The APIs exposed by this library very closely follow the API described in the VMware vSphere API Reference Documentation. Refer to this document to become familiar with the upstream API.

The code in the govmomi package is a wrapper for the code that is generated from the vSphere API description. It primarily provides convenience functions for working with the vSphere API. See godoc.org for documentation.

Status

Changes to the API are subject to semantic versioning.

Refer to the CHANGELOG for version to version changes.

License

govmomi is available under the Apache 2 license.

Overview

This package is the root package of the govmomi library.

The library is structured as follows:

Package vim25

The minimal usable functionality is available through the vim25 package. It contains subpackages that contain generated types, managed objects, and all available methods. The vim25 package is entirely independent of the other packages in the govmomi tree -- it has no dependencies on its peers.

The vim25 package itself contains a client structure that is passed around throughout the entire library. It abstracts a session and its immutable state. See the vim25 package for more information.

Package session

The session package contains an abstraction for the session manager that allows a user to login and logout. It also provides access to the current session (i.e. to determine if the user is in fact logged in)

Package object

The object package contains wrappers for a selection of managed objects. The constructors of these objects all take a *vim25.Client, which they pass along to derived objects, if applicable.

Package govc

The govc package contains the govc CLI. The code in this tree is not intended to be used as a library. Any functionality that govc contains that _could_ be used as a library function but isn't, _should_ live in a root level package.

Other packages

Other packages, such as "event", "guest", or "license", provide wrappers for the respective subsystems. They are typically not needed in normal workflows so are kept outside the object package.

Types

type Client

type Client struct {
	*vim25.Client

	SessionManager *session.Manager
}

func NewClient

func NewClient(ctx context.Context, u *url.URL, insecure bool) (*Client, error)

NewClient creates a new client from a URL. The client authenticates with the server before returning if the URL contains user information.

func (*Client) Login

func (c *Client) Login(ctx context.Context, u *url.Userinfo) error

Login dispatches to the SessionManager.

func (*Client) Logout

func (c *Client) Logout(ctx context.Context) error

Logout dispatches to the SessionManager.

func (*Client) PropertyCollector

func (c *Client) PropertyCollector() *property.Collector

PropertyCollector returns the session's default property collector.

func (*Client) Retrieve

func (c *Client) Retrieve(ctx context.Context, objs []types.ManagedObjectReference, p []string, dst interface{}) error

Retrieve dispatches to the Retrieve function on the default property collector.

func (*Client) RetrieveOne

func (c *Client) RetrieveOne(ctx context.Context, obj types.ManagedObjectReference, p []string, dst interface{}) error

RetrieveOne dispatches to the Retrieve function on the default property collector.

func (*Client) Wait

Wait dispatches to property.Wait.
