Hi,

In UM 3.6, API’s are available to add products, Create Customer Rules, generate all Reports.

Currently API’s are not available to manage Email alerts.

Thanks, Vinayaga.

Thanks Vinayag!!

I have another query related to the vmeter api, I thought it';s better to ask here than to open a separate thread altogether. So I am trying to automate details from product server, the api of which being um/api/report/19. When I am hitting this api, we get a list of fields. Here we number of fields for Vcenter server, one of them being "vms under management". When I am logging into vcsa I can clearly see that we have 9 management vms and 2 workload vms which would total to 11. However the vms under management string we got back from the api states 14. I have no idea what this field signifies and how it is setting the value as 14. If I increase the number of vms from vspehere web client, will we able to see the change in this field(vms under management") as well. PLease note that in the ui I can see the field as 12 which is not equal to 14. I am kind of stuck here. I would highly appreciate your help.

Hi,

In vCloud Usage Meter, the field “vms under management” which displays Total number of unique VMs Managed (Powered-on)  for the month.

In case VMs got deleted in a month, then VMs under Management doesn't match the count of VMs in vCenter Server.

Also, if new VM has been created & powered on, then “vms under management” count will increase.

Thanks, Vinayaga.

Hi,

In the document "vCloud Usage Meter API 3.6", all the NSX Manager related APIs (like add/delete) are available under the section "vCloud Usage Meter API – NSX".

Please refer the same.

Thanks, Vinayaga.
