Name Data Type Permissions Description
defaultprofile <String> Read-write Profile to use when a connection does not match any policy. Default setting is APPFW_BYPASS, which sends unmatched connections back to the Citrix ADC without attempting to filter them further.

Default value: APPFW_BYPASS

Minimum length = 1
undefaction <String> Read-write Profile to use when an application firewall policy evaluates to undefined (UNDEF).

An UNDEF event indicates an internal error condition. The APPFW_BLOCK built-in profile is the default setting. You can specify a different built-in or user-created profile as the UNDEF profile.

Default value: 900

Minimum value = 1

Maximum value = 65535
learnratelimit <Double> Read-write Maximum number of connections per second that the application firewall learning engine examines to generate new relaxations for learning-enabled security checks. The application firewall drops any connections above this limit from the list of connections used by the learning engine.

Default value: 400

Minimum value = 1

Maximum value = 1000
sessionlifetime <Double> Read-write Maximum amount of time (in seconds) that the application firewall allows a user session to remain active, regardless of user activity.

Operations

(click to see Properties )

  • UPDATE
  • UNSET
  • GET (ALL)

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the 'warning' query parameter as 'yes'. For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http:// <netscaler-ip-address> /nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code '209 X-NITRO-WARNING'.

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER: <username>

    X-NITRO-PASS: <password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN= <tokenvalue>

Note:

Mandatory parameters are marked in red and placeholder content is marked in green
