nsicapprofile

Configuration for ICAP profile resource.

Properties

(click to see Operations )

Name Data Type Permissions Description
name <String> Read-write Name for an ICAP profile. Must begin with a letter, number, or the underscore \(_\) character. Other characters allowed, after the first character, are the hyphen \(-\), period \(.\), hash \(\#\), space \( \), at \(@\), colon \(:\), and equal \(=\) characters. The name of a ICAP profile cannot be changed after it is created.



CLI Users: If the name includes one or more spaces, enclose the name in double or single quotation marks \(for example, "my icap profile" or 'my icap profile'\).

Minimum length = 1

Maximum length = 127
preview <String> Read-write Enable or Disable preview header with ICAP request. This feature allows an ICAP server to see the beginning of a transaction, then decide if it wants to opt-out of the transaction early instead of receiving the remainder of the request message.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
previewlength <Double> Read-write Value of Preview Header field. Citrix ADC uses the minimum of this set value and the preview size received on OPTIONS response.

Default value: 4096

Minimum value = 0

Maximum value = 4294967294
uri <String> Read-write URI representing icap service. It is a mandatory argument while creating an icapprofile.

Minimum length = 1
hostheader <String> Read-write ICAP Host Header.

Minimum length = 1
useragent <String> Read-write ICAP User Agent Header String.

Minimum length = 1
mode <String> Read-write ICAP Mode of operation. It is a mandatory argument while creating an icapprofile.

Possible values = REQMOD, RESPMOD
queryparams <String> Read-write Query parameters to be included with ICAP request URI. Entered values should be in arg=value format. For more than one parameters, add ; separated values. e.g.: arg1=val1;arg2=val2.

Minimum length = 1
connectionkeepalive <String> Read-write If enabled, Citrix ADC keeps the ICAP connection alive after a transaction to reuse it to send next ICAP request.

Default value: ENABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
allow204 <String> Read-write Enable or Disable sending Allow: 204 header in ICAP request.

Default value: ENABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
inserticapheaders <String> Read-write Insert custom ICAP headers in the ICAP request to send to ICAP server. The headers can be static or can be dynamically constructed using PI Policy Expression. For example, to send static user agent and Client's IP address, the expression can be specified as "User-Agent: NS-ICAP-Client/V1.0\r\nX-Client-IP: "+CLIENT.IP.SRC+"\r\n".

The Citrix ADC does not check the validity of the specified header name-value. You must manually validate the specified header syntax.

Minimum length = 1
inserthttprequest <String> Read-write Exact HTTP request, in the form of an expression, which the Citrix ADC encapsulates and sends to the ICAP server. If you set this parameter, the ICAP request is sent using only this header. This can be used when the HTTP header is not available to send or ICAP server only needs part of the incoming HTTP request. The request expression is constrained by the feature for which it is used.

The Citrix ADC does not check the validity of this request. You must manually validate the request.

Minimum length = 1
reqtimeout <Double> Read-write Time, in seconds, within which the remote server should respond to the ICAP-request. If the Netscaler does not receive full response with this time, the specified request timeout action is performed. Zero value disables this timeout functionality.

Default value: 0

Minimum value = 0

Maximum value = 86400
reqtimeoutaction <String> Read-write Name of the action to perform if the Vserver/Server representing the remote service does not respond with any response within the timeout value configured. The Supported actions are

* BYPASS - This Ignores the remote server response and sends the request/response to Client/Server.

* If the ICAP response with Encapsulated headers is not received within the request-timeout value configured, this Ignores the remote ICAP server response and sends the Full request/response to Server/Client.

* RESET - Reset the client connection by closing it. The client program, such as a browser, will handle this and may inform the user. The client may then resend the request if desired.

* DROP - Drop the request without sending a response to the user.

Default value: RESET

Possible values = BYPASS, DROP, RESET
logaction <String> Read-write Name of the audit message action which would be evaluated on receiving the ICAP response to emit the logs.
__count <Double> Read-only count parameter

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
