VMware Workstation: Using the REST api with powershell

Hi,

the most did not know that VMware Workstation has a API interface to dealing with it.

The rest api is not enabled by default. The vmrest process must start manually. Start vmrest with the parameter -C to ask for a user and password which must be used to access the api.

Set credentials

D:\> "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmrest.exe" -C

Start Rest Api

D:\> "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmrest.exe"

Here you find the documentation

Enter the credentials as defined in the last step and define a HTTP authorization header

$sUser=myUser
$sPassword=mySecretPassword
$oHeader = @{ "Authorization" = ("Basic {0}" -f ([System.Convert]::ToBase64String([System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes(("{0}:{1}" -f $sUser,$sPassword))))) }

Set the content type and passes the header and content type to Invoke-RestMethod. Test it and get a list of all VMs:

$sRequestType = "application/json"
PS D:\> Invoke-RestMethod -Uri http://localhost:8697/api/vms -Method GET -ContentType $sRequestType -Header $oHeader

id                               path
--                               ----
