Registering OnCommand API Services with the virtual appliance for VSC, VASA Provider, and SRA

The VVol dashboard can display the details of virtual volume (VVol) datastores and virtual machines only if you have registered OnCommand API Services for VASA Provider. OnCommand API Services is also required to obtain data for the VVol VM and datastore reports.

Before you begin

You must have downloaded OnCommand API Services 2.1 or later from the NetApp Support Site.

Note: The VVol dashboard displays performance metrics only when the VVol datastores and virtual machines are configured using ONTAP 9.3 or later.


  1. From the Virtual Storage Console (VSC) Home page, click Settings.
  2. Click Manage Extension in the Administrative Settings tab.
  3. Use the Register OnCommand API Services slider to enable OnCommand API Services.
  4. Enter the IP address, service port, and credentials for OnCommand API Services.
    You can also use the Manage VASA Provider Extensions dialog box for the following modifications:
    • To update OnCommand API Services registration when there is any change to the credentials.
    • To unregister OnCommand API Services when you no longer require the VASA Provider dashboard.

      You must clear the Register OnCommand API Services checkbox to remove the OnCommand API Services registration for VASA Provider.

  5. Click Apply.
    The VVol dashboard displays the metrics only after the registration of OnCommand API Services is complete.
