Minimum length = 1
port <Integer> Read-write Server port number.

Range 1 - 65535

* in CLI is represented as 65535 in NITRO API

Minimum value = 1

Maximum value = 100

Minimum value = 1
siteprefix <String> Read-write The site's prefix string. When the GSLB service group is bound to a GSLB virtual server, a GSLB site domain is generated internally for each bound serviceitem-domain pair by concatenating the site prefix of the service item and the name of the domain. If the special string NONE is specified, the site-prefix string is unset. When implementing HTTP redirect site persistence, the Citrix ADC redirects GSLB requests to GSLB services by using their site domains.

Instead, they will be load balanced among other available services. After the delay time expires, no new requests or connections will be sent to the service.

Operations

(click to see Properties )

  • ADD
  • DELETE
  • UPDATE
  • UNSET
  • ENABLE
  • DISABLE
  • GET (ALL)
  • GET
  • COUNT
  • RENAME

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>

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