    Great to see this arrive. I've written up my first experiments with this new functionality in case it's useful to others: https://www.isjw.uk/post/vmware/vsphere-replication-with-powercli/

    The documentation is in the vSphere Replication REST API documentation (https://developer.vmware.com/apis/vsphere-replication-api/latest/) For every API operation you can see the PowerCLI example at the bottom of the page. We're also working to create a blog post with the most popular use cases and a section in the user's guide.

    Kamen, I see the SRM cmdlets in the 13.1 docs, but no mention of vSphere Replication. Can you point to docs for the new capability to manage vSphere Replication with cmdlets?

    +1000 It's impossible to work with HTML5 on vSphere Replication 8.1 with Large infrastructures (100+ Hosts 2000+ VMs).. i'm taking 2 to 3 minutes per VM to recover or even reconfigure replications... It's depressing.. urgently need to automate recovers and configurations / reconfigurations

    In addition, being able to pull a report which shows all details of the Replication Plans including source VM, VR server, VM disks, RPO, Host VM resides on and destination datastores. Also if multiple Replication plans could be exported and re-imported.

    Would be great to have possibility to read Retention Policy and Recovery Point Objective from VMs with configured VR

    Even the ability to monitor vSphere Replication status with a cmdlet would be a great start!
