How to get VM’s instanceUUID using vSphere REST API?

This post was originally published on this site

Articles like these tell me that I should uniquely identify VMs and other objects in vSphere by their InstanceUUID + MoRef ID:


But I can’t find a way to get instance UUIDs using the API. The https://[vSphere hostname]/rest/vcenter/vm/vm-1234” endpoint does not return it.


How can I get the instance UUID from the REST API?
