Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI Ansible Collection

One of the highlights of the latest Veeam announcement is the Veeam Backup & Replication 11 RestAPI. Until now a RESTful API was only available for other products from Veeam, e.g. Veeam Availablity Orchestrator. Only through Veeam Enterprise Manager could users make some RESTful API calls for Veeam Backup & Replication. The focus of the Veeam Enterprise Manager RESTful API is more user-centric – Backup, Restore, add Tenant, and so on. The new Veeam Backup & Replication 11 RestAPI is currently mainly focused on infrastructure operations – add Managed Servers, create Backup Repositories, and so on. To leverage the new RestAPI fully integrated in the existing processes I have decided to create a Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI Ansible Collection.

A few months ago I already tried to create a Veeam Ansible module based on the PowerShell Snap-In. Basically this worked, but unfortunately, the complexity was very high with this approach.

Note:
This blog post and the Ansible Module is based on the Veeam Backup & Replication 11 Beta Code. The implementation may change until the GA of the Product.

The implementation looks pretty modern and shippes with a Swagger-UI to explore the Veeam Backup & Replication 11 RestAPI (https://<VBR-Server>:9419/static/index.html).

Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI - Swagger-UI

Working with the Veeam RestAPI

There are two simple Get Requests in the Service-Scope of the RestAPI available that do not require authentication, which are good Requests to check the general availability of the API endpoint itself. I typically use the “getServerTime” Request to verify the connection.

curl --location --request GET 'https://10.0.2.16:9419/api/v1/serverTime' \
--header 'x-api-version: 1.0-rev1' \
--header 'Accept: application/json'
Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI - Basic Request

For all other Requests (except the authentication itself) an authorization token is required. The Veeam Backup & Replication 11 RestAPI uses Bearer Token.

Veeam RestAPI Authentication

To create a new access token a simple post request with credentials in the data is required.

curl --location --request POST 'https://10.0.2.16:9419/api/oauth2/token' \
--header 'x-api-version: 1.0-rev1' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
--data-urlencode 'grant_type=password' \
--data-urlencode 'username=Administrator' \
--data-urlencode 'password=<Password>'
Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI - Authentication

With the “access_token” from the response body all further requests can be authorized.

curl --location --request GET 'https://10.0.2.16:9419/api/v1/credentials' \
--header 'x-api-version: 1.0-rev1' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer <access_token>'

If you use a tool like Postman you can automatically parse the response of the authentication request to handle further authorization. Postman uses “Tests” (scripts to process the response – See documentation for more details) to add values to the current environment (collection of variables and values).

var jsonData = JSON.parse(responseBody);
postman.setEnvironmentVariable("bearerToken", jsonData.access_token);

The first Veeam RestAPI Ansible Module

With this basic knowledge about the Veeam Backup & Replication 11 RestAPI, we are now able to create our first Python-based Ansible Module.

If you are new to Ansible development you should have a look at this Guide: Ansible module development: getting started

To make the Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI Ansible Collection more portable I have decided to create an Ansible Collection. Collections are the new distribution format for Ansible content and can be published through Ansible Galaxy.

My first module needs some basic error handling for the RestAPI request and should return the current Server certificate.

Veeam RestAPI Ansible Module with Authentication

The required Python code gets a bit more complex when it comes to authentication. We need way more inputs and the response of one RestAPI Request needs to be handed over to another one.

The following Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI Ansible Collection should return all configured Backup Repositories.

Veeam RestAPI Ansible Module with Changes

The next complexity level is adding or changing something. The first object you typically need to add when you create a new Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure are Credentials (VMware vCenter, Managed Server, and so on). So, the first Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI Ansible Collection with changes is for credential management.

The veeam_vbr_credentials module should be able to delete and add credentials. Changing existing Credentials is on the roadmap.

Veeam RestAPI Ansible Module - Create and Delete Credentials

Ansible Module Testing

One of the simplest code validation for Ansible Modules are Sanity Tests. Sanity tests are made up of scripts and tools used to perform static code analysis. The primary purpose of these tests is to enforce Ansible coding standards and requirements.

GitHub Action for Ansible Module Testing

With GitHub Actions, you can create a simple CI to verify your code on each commit or pull request (in my case the Sanity tests). My use case for GitHub Actions is just a small part of the capabilities this CI/CD pipeline offers.

Github Action - Ansible-Test
# README FIRST
# 1. replace "veeamhub/veeam_rest" with the correct name, ie "community/zabbix"
# 2. If you don't have unit tests remove that section
# 3. If your collection depends on other collections ensure they are installed, see "Install collection dependencies"
# If you need help please ask in #ansible-devel on Freenode IRC

      # The docker container has all the pinned dependencies that are required
      # and all python versions ansible supports.
      - name: Run sanity tests
        run: ansible-test sanity --docker -v --color

With the use of a basic CI pipeline, you are able to guarantee a baseline of the code quality for each Pull request.

Veeam RestAPI Postman Collection

I have published the current version of my Postman Collection that handles the authentication via script as a GitHub Gist: REST API service for Veeam backup & Replication Postman Collection

REST API service for Veeam backup & Replication Postman Collection

Feel free reach out for a newer version as soon as Veeam Backup & Replication 11 is GA.

Veeam RestAPI Ansible Collection

The Veeam Backup & Replication RestAPI Ansible Module is publicly available as a GitHub Repository. All contributions and feedback are welcome.

As soon as the Modules and the Collection reaches a valuable and properly validated level I will publish on Ansible Galaxy.

The full documentation, including the parameters, of the individual module is included in the python file. The inline documentation can be displayed by using: ansible-doc veeam_vbr_credentials_info -M ./plugins/modules/
