NameData TypePermissionsDescription
name<String>Read-writeName of the load balancing virtual server group.
Minimum length = 1
persistencetype<String>Read-writeType of persistence for the group. Available settings function as follows:
* SOURCEIP - Create persistence sessions based on the client IP.
* COOKIEINSERT - Create persistence sessions based on a cookie in client requests. The cookie is inserted by a Set-Cookie directive from the server, in its first response to a client.
* RULE - Create persistence sessions based on a user defined rule.
* NONE - Disable persistence for the group.
Possible values = SOURCEIP, COOKIEINSERT, RULE, NONE
persistencebackup<String>Read-writeType of backup persistence for the group.
Possible values = SOURCEIP, NONE
backuppersistencetimeout<Double>Read-writeTime period, in minutes, for which backup persistence is in effect.
Default value: 2
Minimum value = 2
Maximum value = 1440
persistmask<String>Read-writePersistence mask to apply to source IPv4 addresses when creating source IP based persistence sessions.
Minimum length = 1
cookiename<String>Read-writeUse this parameter to specify the cookie name for COOKIE peristence type. It specifies the name of cookie with a maximum of 32 characters. If not specified, cookie name is internally generated.
v6persistmasklen<Double>Read-writePersistence mask to apply to source IPv6 addresses when creating source IP based persistence sessions.
Default value: 128
Minimum value = 1
Maximum value = 128
cookiedomain<String>Read-writeDomain attribute for the HTTP cookie.
Minimum length = 1
timeout<Double>Read-writeTime period for which a persistence session is in effect.
Default value: 2
Minimum value = 0
Maximum value = 1440
rule<String>Read-writeExpression, or name of a named expression, against which traffic is evaluated. Written in the classic or default syntax.
Note:
Maximum length of a string literal in the expression is 255 characters. A longer string can be split into smaller strings of up to 255 characters each, and the smaller strings concatenated with the + operator. For example, you can create a 500-character string as follows: '"<string of 255 characters>" + "<string of 245 characters>"'

The following requirements apply only to the NetScaler CLI:
* If the expression includes one or more spaces, enclose the entire expression in double quotation marks.
* If the expression itself includes double quotation marks, 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.
Default value: "None"
usevserverpersistency<String>Read-write.
Default value: DISABLED
Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
mastervserver<String>Read-write.
newname<String>Read-writeNew name for the load balancing virtual server group.
Minimum length = 1
td<Double>Read-onlyInteger value that uniquely identifies the traffic domain in which you want to configure the entity. If you do not specify an ID, the entity becomes part of the default traffic domain, which has an ID of 0.
Minimum value = 0
Maximum value = 4094
__count<Double>Read-onlycount parameter

Operations

ADD| UPDATE| UNSET| DELETE| RENAME| 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 redand placeholder content is marked in <green>.
