VMware vSphere Automation REST API Programming Guide provides information about how to use the VMware vSphere® Automation™ REST services to automate different vSphere management tasks.

At VMware, we value inclusion. To foster this principle within our customer, partner, and internal community, we have updated this guide to remove instances of non-inclusive language.

Intended Audience

This manual is intended for anyone who wants to develop applications for accessing and using vSphere features such as virtual machine management, tagging, content libraries, managing the life cycle of clusters with the vSphere Lifecycle Manager, managing internal and external certificates, vSphere with Tanzu, and so on. The information is written for developers who have understanding of the targeted vSphere features and some experience with the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style.
