StoragePoint API Reference

StoragePoint API Overview


StoragePoint exposes APIs for performing actions from custom Microsoft .net framework code. A Profile Creation api (ProfileAPI) is exposed as well as a Blob Migration API (BlobAPI), a Blob Reference API (BlobReferenceAPI), Archive API (ArchiveAPI), Validator API (ValidatorAPI) and Timer Job API (TimerJobAPI). These APIs are callable only from Microsoft .net framework languages (i.e. C#, and can only run on a Web Front End server in a SharePoint farm.


Using the API Objects in Visual Studio

A Visual Studio project must reference the BlueThread.SharePoint.StoragePoint.StoragePointAPI assembly in order to use the ProfileAPI class. This assembly is installed by the core StoragePoint installation in the SharePoint bin directory (ex. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Web Server Extension\12\bin if SharePoint is installed on the C drive). To set the reference in Visual Studio:

1)Right click on the References node under the custom project.

2)Select the Browse tab and browse to the SharePoint bin directory (see above).

3)Select the file Bluethread.SharePoint.StoragePoint.StoragePointAPI.dll and click OK.

Also note the following limitations on solutions developed using the classes:

·The solution must run on a SharePoint WFE server in the farm. No provision is made for access by machines outside of the farm.

·Use outside of a SharePoint context is not supported.

·The solution should run under the SharePoint service account so that access to SharePoint resources and databases is possible.

Profile Creation API

The ProfileAPI object allows the creation of StoragePoint externalization profiles outside of the StoragePoint UI. This object is usable only from Microsoft .net code.
