Update/Create WFA credentials within a workflow

Hello,

          What would a soap command to update the credentials in wfa look like?

Re: Update/Create WFA credentials within a workflow

Olson,

     There are REST APIs provided to Create/Update/Delete/Get a WFA user in WFA. They are available at /rest/docs under UserResource. They can only be called by an Admin user.

If you want a WFA workflow that creates a new WFA User, you would need the following:

1. Create a new command which can call this Rest API. Powershell 3.0 provides Invoke-RestMethod cmdlet which can very easily do it.

2. For creating/Updating a user you need call Invoke-RestMethod, method post/put for creating/updating a user and providing the Admin credentials for -Credentials parameter and an xml file with user details content. And you are done.

3.  If you don't have powershell3.0, you'll need to create an HTTPWebRequest, manually add credentials, create a cookie container object and add it then call the API. Long process.

If you want a sample command for Powershell3.0, I'll give you one soon. (somehow unable to find where I saved it )

warm regards,

Abhishek

Re: Update/Create WFA credentials within a workflow

Hi Oslon,

Here is the REST API to update the WFA credential:

URI: /credentials/{identifierIp}

Method: PUT

input data :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<credential>
  <ip>...</ip>
  <connectionType>...</connectionType>
  <matchType>...</matchType>
  <name>...</name>
  <userName>...</userName>
  <password>...</password> 
</credential>

here is the possible values for connectionType and matchType

<xs:simpleType name="commandCredentialMatchType">
<xs:restriction base="xs:string">
<xs:enumeration value="EXACT"/>
<xs:enumeration value="PATTERN"/>
</xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>
<xs:simpleType name="connectionType">
<xs:restriction base="xs:string">
<xs:enumeration value="ONTAP"/>
<xs:enumeration value="DFM"/>
<xs:enumeration value="VIRTUAL_CENTER"/>
<xs:enumeration value="OTHER"/>
</xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>

Wait a sec? By Credentials you mean WFA User Credentials or  The Credentials page in Execution tab?

Abhishek,    

               I am talking about the storage credentials stored within WFA. Thanks for all the help I think ranjeetr answered my question.

Is there any way to mask parameters sent to the log files?
