Get required identifiers

Contributors dmp-netapp

You can access the Cloud Manager web user interface to retrieve the identifiers needed for the workflows.

Note In addition to the Cloud Manager web user interface, you can also obtain the ID values through the Cloud Volumes ONTAP REST API. See Get supported services for more information.

Get the Connector identifier

Every Connector is assigned a unique identifier. You can retrieve the ID for a Connector and include it in the x-agent-id HTTP request header with each REST API call.

Before you begin

You must have a NetApp account (formerly Cloud Central account). You created this account when you first logged in to Cloud Manager and it’s displayed at the top of the Cloud Manager user interface. See Learn more about NetApp accounts for more information.

Steps
  1. Navigate to the Cloud Manager web site using a browser:

  2. Sign in using your NetApp account (formerly Cloud Central) credentials.

  3. Click Connector at the top right of the page and select Manage Connectors.

  4. On the Manage Connectors page, click the ellipses (…​) icon.

  5. Select the Connector ID.

    Example
    uzJbMFKEnuzi2ryLaENbCP52KBTXx0aIclients

  6. You can optionally derive the associated client ID by removing the clients suffix. This ID applies when accessing the connector directly in local mode and not through the SaaS interface.

    Example
    uzJbMFKEnuzi2ryLaENbCP52KBTXx0aI

After you finish

You can use the Connector ID in the x-agent-id request header to properly route the request. See the curl examples in the workflows for more information.
