Description

The IBM Spectrum Protect API enables a client application to use storage management functions. The API includes function calls that you can use in an application to complete the following operations:

  • Start or end a session
  • Assign management classes to objects before they are stored on a server
  • Back up or archive objects to a server
  • Restore or retrieve objects from a server
  • Query the server for information about stored objects
  • Manage file spaces
  • Send retention events

The API is used by software developers to create new applications that work with IBM Spectrum Protect.

For more information about how to use the IBM Spectrum Protect API, see Developing solutions with the application programming interface.

The IBM Spectrum Protect API is available on the following operating systems:

  • Apple Macintosh
  • HP-UX
  • IBM® AIX®
  • Linux
  • Microsoft Windows
  • Oracle Solaris
