I am writing Python scripts to automate the creation of Geoserver layers. For this the gsconfig module has been invaluable, but I often need to execute operations that are handled by plugins, most often the ImagePyramid one.
I suppose I could use the REST API but I'm not clear how to access the functionalities of installed plugins - in my case ImagePyramid.
Editing to add a more focused reformulation of my question: how do I call on the functionalities of the ImagePyramid plugin using the REST API in Python? More generally, how do I figure it out for any given plugin?
