I needed to update a few bits of information for the networks in my on-prem Aria Automation deployment. It would have been pretty easy to update via the GUI. I thought this was a great opportunity to start learning about using Aria Automation APIs with PowerShell.
I thought I would share what I found to hopefully help someone new to APIs. This could also be useful if someone needed to make these changes in bulk. Let’s take a look!
Figuring things out
I started by reviewing the Aria Automation API Documentation (also known as the Swagger UI) built into each vRA install (in your environment go to https://your-vra-fqdn.com/automation-us/api/docs).
The Swagger UI will help describe how to use the APIs and even provides an interface to test them out.
