Newbie to Python and NASDK

I am new to using Python and the NASDK and was trying to determine how to return some data from the security-config-get api.  Here is some sample code I used to gather the data and the output that I can get from it. As you can see I can get the some of the data out, but I only get one of the supported ciphers.  I have tried several ways to use a 'for in' loop.  It does show me that there are 3 ciphers but the i have not been able to figure out how to get the 3 actual names into a variable to use for verification.  I am sure whatever the answer to this is would/could be used in similar situations with other API calls.  Thanks  

 

api = NaElement("security-config-get")

 

xi = NaElement("desired-attributes")

api.child_add(xi)

 

 

xi1 = NaElement("security-config-info")

xi.child_add(xi1)

 

xi1.child_add_string("cluster-security-config-ready","<cluster-security-config-ready>")

xi1.child_add_string("interface","<interface>")

xi1.child_add_string("is-fips-enabled","<is-fips-enabled>")

xi1.child_add_string("supported-ciphers","<supported-ciphers>")

 

xi2 = NaElement("supported-protocols")

xi1.child_add(xi2)

 

xi2.child_add_string("security-supported-protocols","<security-supported-protocols>")

api.child_add_string("interface","ssl")

 

xo = s.invoke_elem(api)

if (xo.results_status() == "failed") :

print ("Error:\n")

print (xo.sprintf())

sys.exit (1)

 

print ("Received:\n")

print (xo.sprintf())

 

attribs = xo.child_get("attributes")

result=attribs.children_get()

for res in result:

i = res.child_get_string("interface")

f = res.child_get_string("is-fips-enabled")

c = res.child_get_string("supported-ciphers")

p1 = res.child_get("supported-protocols").child_get_string("security-supported-protocols")

print (i)

print (f)

print (c)

print (p1)

Re: Newbie to Python and NASDK

Here is the way i tried this that basically gave me the 3 ciphers but not the name of them, just says none.

 

attribs = xo.child_get("attributes")

result=attribs.children_get()

for res in result:

i = res.child_get_string("interface")

f = res.child_get_string("is-fips-enabled")

c = res.child_get_string("supported-ciphers")

# p1 = res.child_get("supported-protocols").child_get_string("security-supported-protocols")

print (i)

print (f)

print (c)

# print (p1)

pt = res.child_get("supported-protocols")

ptres = pt.children_get()

for p in iter(ptres):

p1 = p.child_get_string("security-supported-protocols")

print (p1)
