NameData TypePermissionsDescription
name<String>Read-writeName for the assignment. Must begin with a letter, number, or the underscore character (_), and must contain only letters, numbers, and the hyphen (-), period (.) hash (#), space ( ), at (@), equals (=), colon (:), and underscore characters. Can be changed after the assignment is added.

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 assignment" or my assignment).
variable<String>Read-writeLeft hand side of the assigment, of the form $variable-name (for a singleton variabled) or $variable-name[key-expression], where key-expression is a default syntax expression that evaluates to a text string and provides the key to select a map entry.
set<String>Read-writeRight hand side of the assignment. The default syntax expression is evaluated and assigned to theleft hand variable.
Add<String>Read-writeRight hand side of the assignment. The default syntax expression is evaluated and added to the left hand variable.
sub<String>Read-writeRight hand side of the assignment. The default syntax expression is evaluated and subtracted from the left hand variable.
append<String>Read-writeRight hand side of the assignment. The default syntax expression is evaluated and appended to the left hand variable.
clear<Boolean>Read-writeClear the variable value. Deallocates a text value, and for a map, the text key.
comment<String>Read-writeComment. Can be used to preserve information about this rewrite action.
newname<String>Read-writeNew name for the assignment.
Must begin with a letter, number, or the underscore character (_), and must contain only letters, numbers, and the hyphen (-), period (.) hash (#), space ( ), at (@), equals (=), colon (:), and underscore characters. Can be changed after the rewrite policy is added.

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 assignment" or my assignment).
Minimum length = 1
hits<Double>Read-onlyThe number of times the action has been taken.
undefhits<Double>Read-onlyThe number of times the action resulted in UNDEF.
referencecount<Double>Read-onlyThe number of references to the action.
__count<Double>Read-onlycount parameter

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>.
