Isilon SDK Info Hub

SW-isilon-onefs-130x130.pngWelcome to the Isilon SDK Information Hub. Here you can find information and code samples related to the OneFS application programming interface (API).


You can use the OneFS API to configure, manage, and monitor cluster functionality. You can also perform operations on files and directories on the cluster.


You can send requests to the OneFS API through a Representational State Transfer (REST) interface, which is accessed through resource URIs and standard HTTP methods. When an API request is sent over HTTPS to a cluster IP address or hostname, that request is authenticated and then authorized through role-based access control (RBAC). After the request is approved, access is provided to either file system configuration libraries or directories and files on the cluster.

Code samples


You can download a ZIP file that includes code samples that use the curl command and the Python programming language to access the OneFS API. These samples illustrate the basic functionality of OneFS API requests for system configuration, such as how to view, create, modify, and delete snapshots, NFS exports, and other system configuration objects on your cluster.
