Module netapp_ontap.resources.account

Copyright © 2022 NetApp Inc. All rights reserved.

Overview

This API displays and manages the configuration of scoped user accounts.

Newly created user accounts might need to be updated for many reasons. For example, a user account might need to use a different application or its role might need to be modified. According to a policy, the password or authentication source of a user account might need to be changed, or a user account might need to be locked or deleted from the system. This API allows you to make these changes to user accounts.

Specify the owner UUID and the user account name in the URI path. The owner UUID corresponds to the UUID of the SVM for which the user account has been created and can be obtained from the response body of the GET request performed on one of the following APIs: /api/security/accounts for all user accounts /api/security/accounts/?scope=cluster for cluster-scoped user accounts /api/security/accounts/?scope=svm for SVM-scoped accounts /api/security/accounts/?owner.name= for a specific SVM This API response contains the complete URI for each user account that can be used.

Examples

Retrieving the user account details

from netapp_ontap import HostConnection
from netapp_ontap.resources import Account

with HostConnection("<mgmt-ip>", username="admin", password="password", verify=False):
    resource = Account(
        name="svm_user1", **{"owner.uuid": "aef7c38-4bd3-11e9-b238-0050568e2e25"}
    )
    resource.get()
    print(resource)

Account(
    {
        "role": {
            "name": "vsadmin",
            "_links": {

Updating the applications and role in a user account

Specify the desired configuration in the form of tuples (of applications and authentication methods) and the role. All other previously configured applications that are not specified in the "applications" parameter of the PATCH request will be de-provisioned for the user account.

    )
    resource.delete()

Classes

class Account (*args, **kwargs)

Allows interaction with Account objects on the host

Initialize the instance of the resource.

Any keyword arguments are set on the instance as properties. For example, if the class was named 'MyResource', then this statement would be true:

MyResource(name='foo').name == 'foo'

Args

*args
Each positional argument represents a parent key as used in the URL of the object. That is, each value will be used to fill in a segment of the URL which refers to some parent object. The order of these arguments must match the order they are specified in the URL, from left to right.
**kwargs
each entry will have its key set as an attribute name on the instance and its value will be the value of that attribute.

Ancestors

Static methods

def count_collection(*args, connection: HostConnection = None, **kwargs) -> int

Fetch a count of all objects of this type from the host.

This calls GET on the object to determine the number of records. It is more efficient than calling get_collection() because it will not construct any objects. Query parameters can be passed in as kwargs to determine a count of objects that match some filtered criteria.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to get the count of bars for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
**kwargs
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host. These query parameters can affect the count. A return_records query param will be ignored.

Returns

On success, returns an integer count of the objects of this type. On failure, returns -1.

Raises

NetAppRestError: If the API call returned a status code >= 400, or if there is no connection available to use either passed in or on the library.

def delete_collection(*args, records: Iterable[_ForwardRef('Account')] = None, body: Union[Resource, dict] = None, poll: bool = True, poll_interval: Union[int, NoneType] = None, poll_timeout: Union[int, NoneType] = None, connection: HostConnection = None, **kwargs) -> NetAppResponse

Deletes a user account.

Delete all objects in a collection which match the given query.

All records on the host which match the query will be deleted.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to delete the collection of bars for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
records
Can be provided in place of a query. If so, this list of objects will be deleted from the host.
body

If the operation returns a job, this specifies how often to query the job for updates.
poll_timeout
If the operation returns a job, this specifies how long to continue monitoring the job's status for completion.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
**kwargs
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host. Only resources matching this query will be deleted.

Returns

A NetAppResponse object containing the details of the HTTP response.

Raises

NetAppRestError: If the API call returned a status code >= 400

Find an instance of an object on the host given a query.

The host will be queried with the provided key/value pairs to find a matching resource. If 0 are found, None will be returned. If more than 1 is found, an error will be raised or returned. If there is exactly 1 matching record, then it will be returned.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to find a bar for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
**kwargs

def get_collection(*args, connection: HostConnection = None, max_records: int = None, **kwargs) -> Iterable[Resource]

Retrieves a list of user accounts in the cluster.

  • security login show

Learn more


Fetch a list of all objects of this type from the host.

This is a lazy fetch, making API calls only as necessary when the result of this call is iterated over. For instance, if max_records is set to 5, then iterating over the collection causes an API call to be sent to the server once for every 5 records. If the client stops iterating before getting to the 6th record, then no additional API calls are made.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to get the collection of bars for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
max_records
The maximum number of records to return per call
**kwargs
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host.

Returns

A list of Resource objects

Raises

NetAppRestError: If there is no connection available to use either passed in or on the library. This would be not be raised when get_collection() is called, but rather when the result is iterated.
