Management server API setup

enabling for remote IPs

done the smartconsole

cp mgmt api enable all IPs.png

it can also be enabled via mgmt_cli under "set api-settings"

status check

logging in

login and redirect session info to a file for reuse

# mgmt_cli login user admin > id.txt

same but read only

# mgmt_cli login user admin read-only true > id.txt

search existing object

search objects by IP, return all objects that contain the ip explicitly or within a nework address space/range.

# mgmt_cli -s id.txt show objects filter "" ip-only true  --format json | jq '.objects[] | {name: .name, subnet: .subnet4, mask: ."mask-length4"}'

return only objects with the EXACT ip

# mgmt_cli -s id.txt show objects filter "" ip-only true details-level full --format json |  jq '.objects[] | select(."ipv4-address" == "") | .name'
      • details-level full will include more objects, including other stuff like type CpmiHostCkp (built in smartcenter object)

access rules

notes before you begin

when using the parameter "name" to refer to a particular package, it appears to require the following... <package name> <layer name>

as shown by the show access-layers command below. Also, the output of show access-rulebase doesn't is limited to 50 rules. If you want more, I think you have to iterate though a set of offets until all the rules are dumped. That dump in json format is a bit confusing. If you have no "headers" or "titles" in the ruleset, you will get 1 rulebase[] array. If you have headers, each section is its own rulebase[] array with yet another rulebase[] array containing the actual rules.

What this means is the commands below may or may not work as you expect them to. The will likely need to be altered with mgmt_cli "offset" commands and/or modified jq commands...

for example, if you have NO headers in your policy and are running show access-rulebase, it will output the rules with

| jq '.rulebase[]'

if you DO HAVE headers, to output the rules you need

| jq '.rulebase[] | .rulebase[]'

rule numbers

show access layers?

[Expert@chmkmgr1:0]# mgmt_cli show access-layers -s id.txt --format json | jq '."access-layers"[].name'
"dropall Network"

where "Network" represents the default policy package Standard


show number of rules in policy

mgmt_cli show access-rulebase name "<layer>" -s id.txt --format json limit 1 | jq '.total'

display rule with uid = xxx

# mgmt_cli -s id.txt show access-rule layer "My_policy Network" uid "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx"

display src/dst/service from rule with uid

for i in source destination service; do echo $i; mgmt_cli -s id.txt show access-rule layer "<policy_name> <layer_name>" uid "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx" --format json | jq .$i[].name; done

alternate(inferior) way with jq

mgmt_cli show access-rulebase name "Network" -s id.txt package "Standard" show-hits true --format json | jq '.rulebase[] | select (.uid == "1de8fab0-4858-4067-977d-1cbb5cd2e55d") | ."rule-number"'

display rule number with comment containing a string haha

mgmt_cli show access-rulebase name "Network" -s id.txt package "Standard" show-hits true --format json | jq '.rulebase[] | select (.comments | contains("haha")) | {rulenum: ."rule-number", comment: .comments}'

adding rules

mgmt_cli -s id.txt add access-rule layer xxad70c9-b4c6-4e64-9bfd-d57ac91289f3 name new_rule

mgmt_cli -s id.txt add access-rule layer xx70adc9-b4c6-4e64-9bfd-d57ac91289f3 position top name new_rule

mgmt_cli -s id.txt set access-rule name "new_rule" layer "xx70adc9-b4c6-4e64-9bfd-d57ac91289f3" action "Accept" service add "https"

mgmt_cli -s id.txt set access-rule name "new_rule" layer "xx70adc9-b4c6-4e64-9bfd-d57ac91289f3" service.add "https"

mds / domain

get list of domains,objects(management and firewalls),object type

mgmt_cli.exe -s id.txt show gateways-and-servers --format json limit 500 | jq '.objects.nat,.name,.type' | xargs -n3

jq examples

compound jq select using and/or (note: contains returns true/false)

| jq '.rulebase[] | .rulebase[] | select (.comments | (contains("hahaha") or contains("lol")) | not ) | {ruleUID: .uid, comments: .comments} '

and another one...

| jq '.rulebase[] | .rulebase[] | select ((.comments | (contains("hahah") or contains("lol") | not )) and (.enabled == true)) | {enabled: .enabled, rulenum: ."rule-number", ruleUID: .uid, comments: .comments} '

filter objects dictary for uid for accept action

jq '."objects-dictionary"[] | select (.name == "Accept") | .uid'

get cluster member policy installation targets

| jq -c '."installation-targets-revision"[] | ."cluster-members-revision"[] | ."target-name"' | tr -d '"' | tr '\n' ' '

"rulenum": 1,
"comment": "hahahlol"
