Overview

vmware-openapi-generator generates OpenAPI/Swagger documents from vAPI metamodel format.

This generator can be used to work with an existing vCenter Server (6.5+) to generate a OpenAPI/Swagger document based on the REST APIs which exist as part of that server.

Prerequisites

Build & Run

python vmsgen.py -vc <vCenter IP> -o <output directory path>  
Trying to connect https://vcip/api 
Connected to https://vcip/api 			  
processing package vcenter  
processing package cis  
processing package appliance  
processing package vapi  
processing package content  
Generated swagger files at output for https://vcip/api in 106.460405666999577 seconds    

Running the above command generates the openAPI specification files (3.0) by default. In order to generate the swagger 2.0 specification files, the parameter -oas needs to passed explicitly.

The description of the input parameters that can go in the run command is as follows:

  1. metadata-url: It is the url of the metadata API. If IP address of the vCenter (vcip) is provided, it takes in the values as https://< vcip >/api
  2. rest-navigation-url: This is the url for rest navigation. If vcip is provided this url becomes https://< vcip >/rest
  3. vcip: It is the IP Address of the vCenter server. It is used to specify the metadata-url and rest-navigation-url.
  4. output: This is output directory where the generated swagger or openapi files will be stored. If the output directory is not supplied, the present working directory is chosen as the output directory.
  5. tag-seperator: It is the seperator to be used in tag names i.e. '/'.
  6. insecure: It is used to check the SSL certificate validation. If this parameter is supplied as an input argument, it bypasses the certificate validation. If not passed, the program will check for validation.
  7. unique-operation-ids: This parameter is passed to generate unique ids for all operation/functions. Default value of this parameter is false. A required semantic rule of the open api specification is that the operations should have a unique operation name even if they are under different paths. If this parameter is ignored the generated swagger file may throw semantic error if it fails the openapi validation.
  8. metamodel-components: If this parameter is passed, then each metamodel component retreived from the vCenter server is saved in a different .json file under the metamodel directory.
  9. host: It is the IP Address of the host that serves the API. By default the value is < vcenter >
  10. oas : This parameter is used to specify as to which version of swagger file the user wants to generate. By default the generated files are of version 3 i.e openapi. If the user wants to generate the version 2 files, the parameter needs to be passed explicitly.
  11. deprecate-slash-rest: This parameter is used to deprecate the /rest APIs in the generated OpenAPI specification, only when the API to deprecate has an /api counterpart.
  12. fetch-authentication-metadata: Adds security information in the generated OpenAPI definitions. In order to do that it accesses API authentication metadata, which increases the processing time (~20-30 seconds).
