CIFS workgroup creating

Hi One team
Is it possible to create a CIFS workgroup mode using REST-API?
I am inquiring because it is not in the document list.

Thank you.


Re: CIFS workgroup creating

Does not seem to be currently possible. I'm on 9.8 (as I'm internal to NetApp):


  "error": {
    "message": "Unexpected argument \"workgroup\".",
    "code": "262179",
    "target": "workgroup"

Thank you for your confirmation @parisi 

Is it possible to run the CLI directly using private REST-API? I'm not familiar with API, so I'm making an inquiry.

Have a nice day.

No. REST API is the interface.


You can either use SSH commands or possibly look into using NetApp SDK/ZAPI calls. REST API likely will eventually support this, but it's not presently there.

Correction on the above...


I did discover a way to do CLI pass through.


curl -siku admin:password  --request GET|POST|DELETE|PATCH  "http://x.x.x.x/api/private/cli/command"


Now I'll see if I can figure out the right way to run the cifs create command.
