Struggles with useradmin-user-info element and Python

danieltd

I am trying to add a new user with a python script but it does not like my useradmin-user-info element and I am out of guesses for what is wrong.

Here is the command I am trying to get to work.

     out = s.invoke("useradmin-user-add", "password", service_acct_passwd, "useradmin-user", opsmgr_user)

This is the error that I am getting.

     Didn't find expected typedef useradmin-user-info for element useradmin-user

Below is how I am constructing the useradmin-user-info element.

     opsmgr_user = NaElement("useradmin-user-info")

     opsmgr_user.child_add_string("name", "OpsManager")

     opsmgr_user.child_add_string("comment", "")

     opsmgr_user.child_add(admin_group)

I have tried both building the admin_group element and pulling it.  No luck with either.

     #admin_group_pull = s.invoke("useradmin-group-list", "group-name", "administrators" )

     #admin_group_pull = admin_group.child_get("useradmin-groups")

     #admin_group_pull = admin_group.child_get("useradmin-group-info")

     admin_group_make = NaElement("useradmin-group-info")

     admin_group_make.child_add_string("name", "Administrators")

     admin_group = NaElement("useradmin-groups")

     admin_group.child_add(admin_group_make)

Here is a sprintf() of the opsmgr_user

<useradmin-user-info>

          <name>OpsManager</name>

          <comment></comment>

          <useradmin-groups>

                    <useradmin-group-info>

                              <name>Administrators</name>

                    </useradmin-group-info>

          </useradmin-groups>

</useradmin-user-info>

This seems to match perfectly with a sample pulled from an existing user.

     test = s.invoke("useradmin-user-list", "user-name", "sftp_user2")

     test = test.child_get("useradmin-users")

     test = test.child_get("useradmin-user-info")

     print(test.sprintf())

<useradmin-user-info>

          <name>sftp_user2</name>

          <comment></comment>

          <useradmin-groups>

                    <useradmin-group-info>

                              <name>sftp_group</name>

                    </useradmin-group-info>

          </useradmin-groups>

</useradmin-user-info>

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Daniel DeCristofaro

Got the issue sorted out.  Thanks Ben!

My problem was that the .invoke method only supports simple name value pairs and was not compatible with elements.  I had use the .invoke_elem() method to pass the objects correctly.

snapdrive_user = NaElement("useradmin-user")

useradminuserinfoElement = NaElement("useradmin-user-info")

snapdrive_user.child_add(useradminuserinfoElement)

useradminuserinfoElement.child_add_string("name", "snapdrive")

useradmingroupsElement = NaElement("useradmin-groups")

useradminuserinfoElement.child_add(useradmingroupsElement)

useradmingroupinfoElement = NaElement("useradmin-group-info")

useradmingroupsElement.child_add(useradmingroupinfoElement)

useradmingroupinfoElement.child_add_string("name", "Administrators")

#print(snapdrive_user.sprintf())

opsmgr_user = NaElement("useradmin-user")

useradminuserinfoElement = NaElement("useradmin-user-info")

opsmgr_user.child_add(useradminuserinfoElement)

useradminuserinfoElement.child_add_string("name", "OpsManager")

useradmingroupsElement = NaElement("useradmin-groups")

useradminuserinfoElement.child_add(useradmingroupsElement)

useradmingroupinfoElement = NaElement("useradmin-group-info")

useradmingroupsElement.child_add(useradmingroupinfoElement)

useradmingroupinfoElement.child_add_string("name", "Administrators")

#print(opsmgr_user.sprintf())

add_snapdrive_user = NaElement("useradmin-user-add")

add_snapdrive_user.child_add_string("password", service_acct_passwd)

add_snapdrive_user.child_add(snapdrive_user)

#print(add_snapdrive_user.sprintf())

out = s.invoke_elem(add_snapdrive_user)

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

    print ("Error:\n")

    print (out.sprintf())

    sys.exit (1)

add_opsmgr_user = NaElement("useradmin-user-add")

add_opsmgr_user.child_add_string("password", service_acct_passwd)

add_opsmgr_user.child_add(opsmgr_user)

#print(add_opsmgr_user.sprintf())

out = s.invoke_elem(add_opsmgr_user)

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

    print ("Error:\n")

    print (out.sprintf())

    sys.exit (1)
