psCloudstack Managing Cloudstack Made EasyHans van Veen
For managing Cloudstack several methods exist like the Cloudstack web client and the Cloudstack cloudmonkey CLI. A new player in this arena is psCloudstack, a Windows Powershell based counterpart of cloudmonkey, which dynamically creates the api functions you are entitled to.
What makes psCloudstack different from other tools?
The major difference with other CLI based tools is: it is dynamic.
psCloudstack uses the Cloudstack listApis api call to collect details of all api’s you are entitled to use on the Cloudstack management server. This list is then automatically converted into a set of Powershell functions with the same names and parameters the original api’s.
A good example says more than a 1000 words…
Example 1: Creating Compute Offering
Example 2: Create Disk Offering
Example 3: Removing Disk Offering
Example 4: Create Network Offering
Example 5: Create Domains
Example 6: Create Account
The list is endless…
