Name Data Type Permissions Description
name <String> Read-write Name for the DNS policy.
rule <String> Read-write Expression against which DNS traffic is evaluated.

Note:

* On the command line interface, if the expression includes blank spaces, the entire expression must be enclosed in double quotation marks.

* If the expression itself includes double quotation marks, you must escape the quotations by using the character.

* Alternatively, you can use single quotation marks to enclose the rule, in which case you do not have to escape the double quotation marks.

Example: CLIENT.UDP.DNS.DOMAIN.EQ("domainname").
viewname <String> Read-write The view name that must be used for the given policy.
preferredlocation <String> Read-write The location used for the given policy. This is deprecated attribute. Please use -prefLocList.
preferredloclist <String[]> Read-write The location list in priority order used for the given policy.

Minimum length = 1
drop <String> Read-write The dns packet must be dropped.

Possible values = YES, NO
cachebypass <String> Read-write By pass dns cache for this.

Possible values = YES, NO
actionname <String> Read-write Name of the DNS action to perform when the rule evaluates to TRUE. The built in actions function as follows:

* dns_default_act_Drop. Drop the DNS request.

* dns_default_act_Cachebypass. Bypass the DNS cache and forward the request to the name server.

You can create custom actions by using the add dns action command in the CLI or the DNS > Actions > Create DNS Action dialog box in the Citrix ADC configuration utility.
logaction <String> Read-write Name of the messagelog action to use for requests that match this policy.
hits <Double> Read-only The number of times the policy has been hit.
undefhits <Double> Read-only Number of Undef hits.

  • UNSET
  • GET (ALL)
  • GET
  • COUNT

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
