Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

I got the error when I tried to invoke rest-api put method with the URL. URL for put is : "https://localhost/rest/v1/assets/internalVolumes/{id}/annotations" .

When I invoked rest api it gave error as 500 : Internal Server Error. Has anybody tried to update (put) fields(annotations) in OCI using rest Api?

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

Hi,

 

Here is the PowerShell code from a WFA workflow i've used in my environment to successfully set OCI annotations on internal volumes.

 

Param(
   [Parameter(Mandatory = $True, HelpMessage="The OCI hostname to poll")]
   [String]$Host,
   [Parameter(Mandatory = $True, HelpMessage="The OCI port number (default: 443)")]
   [Int]$Port=443,
   [Parameter(Mandatory = $True, HelpMessage="The cluster name or IP Address")]
   [String]$ClusterName,
   [Parameter(Mandatory = $True, HelpMessage="The volume name")]
   [String]$VolumeName,

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

I have added sanscreen  host creadential in WFA and tried to run it and its failing at "Failed enumerating API login information from OCI server", what I might be missing?

also, what is the way to provide credential directly in CLI?

 

the $username and $password parameters are not discovered automatically when I click on discover parameter?

 

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

Hi,

 

The username and password are enumerated from the credentials varialbe which is set by retrieving them from the WFA credential cache using:

 

$Credentials = Get-WfaCredentials -Host $Host

 Have you added credentials for the OCI host and set the port and timeout?

Note: You might need to modify the port number to meet your requirements

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

Matt, I did added as you showed above, also I throw the user name in script  and confirmed it can get right user name also. I think the issue may be in header. can you give me a command where i can simply replace the put comamnd you ahev with my user name and password for testing purpose and see if it can work, then I can confirm it must be something with the creadentials.

 

for ex:

 $A   = Invoke-RestMethod -Method PUT -Uri $Uri -Headers $Headers -Body (Set-OCIAnnotationFields $AnnotationName $AnnotationValue)

 

insted of $header what should i do to supply user name and password in above line directely?

 

appriciate your help.

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

I was able to generate error which I am getting

Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.

 

WFA is on 1indows 2012 and SANSCREEN is 2008 servers

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.

-----

 

What is your scancreen/insight version? Newer versions of OCI is not doesn't allow secure connection using the default security protocol of powershell ( ssl, tls ). So before doing Invoke-RestMethod add the below line:

 

[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = 'Tls11,Tls12'

Re: Update Annotations using REST API in OCI

Thanks Matt, I was able to resolve all issues and was able to use this.

one problem I found is when the workflow does not find the internal volume it is not failing. it give information messages that its not able to find mathcing volume but the workflow it self is not failing.
