This technical white paper is for the customers who use WS-MAN APIs to create scripts and management applications. It provides any management application developer, the required knowledge for using the WS-Man APIs and create their own management applications. The aim is to enable the developers to formulate a simple python based management application.

This whitepaper aims to enable the management application developers to understand the WS-Man Application Programming Interface (API)s and the method to create an application for data center management using the programmatic interface. The whitepaper will describe the way a management application will parse Web Services Description Language (WSDL) files to understand the schema of the various SOAP requests to be sent for enumeration of data and invocation of methods. It will represent the inventory of data and invocation of methods using sample python code.
