Network Interfaces on 7-Mode device

Hey all, I'm having issues getting any info on the Network Interfaces on our 7-Mode device. 


Request sent in ZEDI

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<netapp xmlns="" version="1.15">



<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<netapp version='1.1' xmlns=''>
<!-- Output of net-config-get-active [Execution Time: 12 ms] -->
<results reason='User apiUser does not have capability to invoke API net-config-get-active.' errno='13003' status='failed'/>
<!-- Output of perf-object-get-instances [Execution Time: 112 ms] -->
<results reason='can"t get instances of lif' errno='13001' status='failed'/>


The device I am connecting to in ZEDI is 


System Model: FAS2240-2
Ontap Version: NetApp Release 8.2P3 7-Mode: Wed Sep 11 21:30:48 PDT 2013


Thru some digging I've found that cli-ifinfo* permission needs to be applied to the API user but my IT guy is telling me cli-ifinfo* is not supported in the version we have. Does anyone have any insights on what permissions or configuration changes are needed to enable querying for Interface information and performance stats?
