Authentication to use with nsswitch (group)

Can’t we add http authentication to use with nsswitch (group) ?

ABC-CDOT::> security login create -user-or-group-name servergroup -application http -authentication-method nsswitch -role admin -is-ns-switch-group yes -vserver ABC-CDOT

Error: command failed: "-is-nsswitch-group yes" is supported only for applications "ontapi" and "ssh".

The Active Directory, LDAP, or NIS group name can be specified only with the domain or nsswitch authentication method and ontapi and ssh application. (Ref:


Since the OCSM is configured internally, they can authenticate the users internally.
Change the authentication method to internal.
