Does DCO have an API for adding network connections and power paths (not server to rack power)? Thank you.

Not for network connections, but they are some API's for power path:

This API, I know,
But this is only used for the server to connect to the rack power, in the parent's path can not be used, For example: Add a circuit breaker

There is also the possibility of using an ETL export database (ETL Export Database) to access asset and connection data. This would allow you to use sql queries to pull some of the data you're looking for. You will need to create an export database referencing these procedures ETL Database Configuration and ETL External System Configuration
The four tables pasted below are important from an asset and connections standpoint. configuration_item contains DCO asset data, configuration_item_power_path contains power path data, configuration_item_relation lists power and network connections.
There are other relevant tables which tie back to the network connection info in configuration_item_relation, They are pasted below ... these tables are focused on the connection end point info. The configuration_item_relation table is more about the existence of the connection.
