    VMware  VMs included in multiple Subclients associated with schedules to run incremental (daily)  with Synthetic Full (weekly).

    Can we use API to trigger on-demand Single VM backup (preferably full backup) and initiate Restore?

    Our requirement is  - Include OnDemand full VM backup before any system maintenance activity.

    Yes. That can be done by leveraging the APIs. See for a large collection of available API calls. I would recommend to leverage the SDKs for Python or Powershell.
