VCSA - Using VAMI API to start / stop ssh, bash, etc.

Hi, Been trying to figure out how to use the VAMI API commands to start / stop VCSA services such as SSH, Bash, etc., via PowerCLI. Is there anyone that knows how to do this?

Thank you!

Use Appliance APIs to enable and disable services.

i.e,

  1. List Services : GET - https://{vCenter}/api/appliance/services
  2. Start Service : POST - https://{vCenter}/api/appliance/services/{service}?action=start
  3. Stop Service: POST - https://{vCenter}/api/appliance/services/{service}?action=stop

service = "sshd"
