Endpoints for working with connection management

With the connection management API service you can create, update, delete, and get information about data source connection entries in the connection table.

A data source connection contains the following attributes:
Indicates the name of the connection.
Indicates the type of the connection.
Indicates the cluster in which the data source is located.
Indicates the file system or vault in which the data is stored.
Indicates the location in which the cluster is maintained.
Note: To determine cluster and data source values for a connection in an IBM Spectrum Scale cluster, follow these steps:
  1. Open a console on a node in the IBM Spectrum Scale cluster.
  2. Run the following command to get information about the cluster:
    The command output displays information about the cluster similar to the following example:
    GPFS cluster information
      GPFS cluster name:         modevvm19.metro.labs.cpr.com
      GPFS cluster id:           7146749509622277333
      GPFS UID domain:           modevvm19.metro.labs.cpr.com
      Remote shell command:      /usr/bin/ssh
      Remote file copy command:  /usr/bin/scp
      Repository type:           CCR
     Node  Daemon node name              IP address   Admin node name                Designation
       1   modevvm19.metro.labs.cpr.com  modevvm19.metro.labs.cpr.com quorum-manager
  3. Make a note of the IBM Spectrum Scale cluster name, which in the preceding example is modevvm19.metro.labs.cpr.com. Use this value as the cluster attribute for the connection.
  4. Run the following command to get information about all the mounted file systems in the cluster:
    /usr/lpp/mmfs/bin/mmlsmount all
    The command output displays information about mounted file systems as in the following example:
    File system gpfs0 is mounted on 1 nodes.
  5. Make a note of the name of the file system that you want to create a connection for. For example, in the preceding example only one file system is mounted and its name is gpfs0. Use this value as the datasource attribute for the connection.
