(click to see Operations )

Name Data Type Permissions Description
certkey <String> Read-write Name for the certificate and private-key pair. Must begin with an ASCII alphanumeric or underscore (_) character, and must contain only ASCII alphanumeric, underscore, hash (#), period (.), space, colon (:), at (@), equals (=), and hyphen (-) characters. Cannot be changed after the certificate-key pair is created.



The following requirement applies only to the Citrix ADC CLI:

If the name includes one or more spaces, enclose the name in double or single quotation marks (for example, "my cert" or 'my cert').

Minimum length = 1
cert <String> Read-write Name of and, optionally, path to the X509 certificate file that is used to form the certificate-key pair. The certificate file should be present on the appliance's hard-disk drive or solid-state drive. Storing a certificate in any location other than the default might cause inconsistency in a high availability setup. /nsconfig/ssl/ is the default path.

Minimum length = 1
key <String> Read-write Name of and, optionally, path to the private-key file that is used to form the certificate-key pair. The certificate file should be present on the appliance's hard-disk drive or solid-state drive. Storing a certificate in any location other than the default might cause inconsistency in a high availability setup. /nsconfig/ssl/ is the default path.

Minimum length = 1
password <Boolean> Read-write Passphrase that was used to encrypt the private-key. Use this option to load encrypted private-keys in PEM format.
fipskey <String> Read-write Name of the FIPS key that was created inside the Hardware Security Module (HSM) of a FIPS appliance, or a key that was imported into the HSM.

Minimum length = 1
hsmkey <String> Read-write Name of the HSM key that was created in the External Hardware Security Module (HSM) of a FIPS appliance.

Minimum length = 1
inform <String> Read-write Input format of the certificate and the private-key files. The three formats supported by the appliance are:

PEM - Privacy Enhanced Mail

DER - Distinguished Encoding Rule

PFX - Personal Information Exchange.

Default value: PEM

Possible values = DER, PEM, PFX
passplain <String> Read-write Pass phrase used to encrypt the private-key. Required when adding an encrypted private-key in PEM format.

Minimum length = 1
expirymonitor <String> Read-write Issue an alert when the certificate is about to expire.

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
notificationperiod <Double> Read-write Time, in number of days, before certificate expiration, at which to generate an alert that the certificate is about to expire.

Minimum value = 10

Maximum value = 100
bundle <String> Read-write Parse the certificate chain as a single file after linking the server certificate to its issuer's certificate within the file.

Default value: NO

Possible values = YES, NO
deletefromdevice <Boolean> Read-write Delete cert/key file from file system.
linkcertkeyname <String> Read-write Name of the Certificate Authority certificate-key pair to which to link a certificate-key pair.

Minimum length = 1
nodomaincheck <Boolean> Read-write Override the check for matching domain names during a certificate update operation.
ocspstaplingcache <Boolean> Read-write Clear cached ocspStapling response in certkey.
signaturealg <String> Read-only Signature algorithm.
certificatetype <String[]> Read-only Specifies whether the certificate is of type root-CA, intermediate-CA, server, client, or client and server.

Possible values = ROOT_CERT, INTM_CERT, CLNT_CERT, SRVR_CERT, UNKNOWN_CERT
serial <String> Read-only Serial number.
issuer <String> Read-only Issuer name.
clientcertnotbefore <String> Read-only Not-Before date.
clientcertnotafter <String> Read-only Not-After date.

subject <String> Read-only Subject name.
publickey <String> Read-only Public key algorithm.
publickeysize <Integer> Read-only Size of the public key.
version <Integer> Read-only Version.
priority <Double> Read-only ocsp priority.
status <String> Read-only Status of the certificate.

Possible values = Valid, Not yet valid, Expired
passcrypt <String> Read-only Passcrypt.

Minimum length = 1
data <Double> Read-only Vserver Id.
servicename <String> Read-only Service name to which the certificate key pair is bound.
ocspresponsestatus <String> Read-only Ocsp response status of the certificate.

Possible values = NONE, EXPIRED, VALID
builtin <String[]> Read-only Flag to determine if Cert key is built-in or not.

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
