The answer is very likely.  I unfortunately do not have a roadmap for SyncIQ support but some of the URLs for the PAPI protocol have already been mapped out.

Re: Isilon platform API support for SyncIQ

The document "Best Practices for Data Replication with EMC Isilon SyncIQ" dated November 2012 alludes to API control of SYnc IQ on page 30.

<snip>

Automation via the OneFS Platform API

The OneFS Platform API provides a RESTful programmatic interface to SyncIQ, allowing automated control of cluster replication. The Platform API is integrated with Roles Based Administration (described above) providing a granular authentication framework for secure, remote SyncIQ administration via the scripting language of your choice.

</snip>


The latest version of the Platform API guide makes no mention of any support for SyncIQ via API calls.


I find this very frustrating that the messages are different in 2 different EMC documents.

Re: Isilon platform API support for SyncIQ

The CLIs also different for versions

isi sync policies list in  7.1x

isi sync policy list  in 7.0x

Is there is any common command  or url across versions thru which I can see policies ..

This is need to for a management solution to report policy of clusters

Re: Isilon platform API support for SyncIQ

Are you asking OneFS sync IQ has REST API?

I could not find REST API for Sync IQ.

I have only CLI option.

Re: Isilon platform API support for SyncIQ

OneFS 7.1 added PAPI support for SyncIQ.  PAPI support for SyncIQ is not present in OneFS 7.0.

See the OneFS 7.1 PAPI reference doc / Chapter 8 (SyncIQ Resources)

https://support.emc.com/docu50224_OneFS-7.1-Platform-API-Reference.pdf

As for CLI, you can use the isi_classic sync policy command in 7.1 to match the look&feel of the 7.0 isi sync policy command.  (In fact you can use isi_classic sync policy in both 7.0 and 7.1)

However, please note that isi_classic is meant to minimize the impact of CLI changes so it's not guaranteed to be there in a future OneFS version.  Therefore whenever you evaluate a new OneFS version, make sure to check this out if your app relies on it.
