Module netapp_ontap.resources.cifs_share

Copyright © 2022 NetApp Inc. All rights reserved.

Overview

Before any users or applications can access data on the CIFS server over SMB, a CIFS share must be created with sufficient share permissions. CIFS share is a named access point in a volume which is tied to the CIFS server on the SVM. Before creating a CIFS share make sure that the path is valid within the scope of the SVM and that it is reachable.
Permissions can be assigned to this newly created share by specifying the 'acls' field. When a CIFS share is created, ONTAP creates a default ACL for this share with 'Full-Control' permissions for an 'Everyone' user.

Examples

Creating a CIFS share

To create a CIFS share for a CIFS server, use the following API. Note the return_records=true query parameter used to obtain the newly created entry in the response.


from netapp_ontap import HostConnection
from netapp_ontap.resources import CifsShare

with HostConnection("<mgmt-ip>", username="admin", password="password", verify=False):

Classes

class CifsShare (*args, **kwargs)

CIFS share is a named access point in a volume. Before users and applications can access data on the CIFS server over SMB, a CIFS share must be created with sufficient share permission. CIFS shares are tied to the CIFS server on the SVM. When a CIFS share is created, ONTAP creates a default ACL for the share with Full Control permissions for Everyone.

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('CifsShare')] = 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 CIFS share.

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
The body of the delete request. This could be a Resource instance or a dictionary object.
poll
If set to True, the call will not return until the asynchronous job on the host has completed. Has no effect if the host did not return a job response.
poll_interval
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

def find(*args, connection: HostConnection = None, **kwargs) -> Resource

Retrieves CIFS shares.

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
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host.

Returns

A Resource object containing the details of the object or None if no matches were found.

Raises

NetAppRestError: If the API call returned more than 1 matching resource.

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

Retrieves CIFS shares.

  • vserver cifs share show
  • vserver cifs share properties 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.

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

  • marshmallow.schema.Schema
  • marshmallow.base.SchemaABC

Class variables

access_based_enumeration GET POST PATCH

If enabled, all folders inside this share are visible to a user based on that individual user access right; prevents the display of folders or other shared resources that the user does not have access to.

acls GET POST

The acls field of the cifs_share.

change_notify GET POST PATCH

Specifies whether CIFS clients can request for change notifications for directories on this share.

comment GET POST PATCH

Specify the CIFS share descriptions.

Example: HR Department Share

continuously_available GET POST PATCH

Specifies whether or not the clients connecting to this share can open files in a persistent manner. Files opened in this way are protected from disruptive events, such as, failover and giveback.

dir_umask GET POST PATCH

Directory Mode Creation Mask to be viewed as an octal number.

Example: 18

encryption GET POST PATCH

Specifies that SMB encryption must be used when accessing this share. Clients that do not support encryption are not able to access this share.

file_umask GET POST PATCH

File Mode Creation Mask to be viewed as an octal number.

Example: 18

force_group_for_create GET POST PATCH

Specifies that all files that CIFS users create in a specific share belong to the same group (also called the "force-group"). The "force-group" must be a predefined group in the UNIX group database. This setting has no effect unless the security style of the volume is UNIX or mixed security style.

home_directory GET POST

Specifies whether or not the share is a home directory share, where the share and path names are dynamic. ONTAP home directory functionality automatically offer each user a dynamic share to their home directory without creating an individual SMB share for each user. The ONTAP CIFS home directory feature enable us to configure a share that maps to different directories based on the user that connects to it. Instead of creating a separate shares for each user, a single share with a home directory parameters can be created. In a home directory share, ONTAP dynamically generates the share-name and share-path by substituting %w, %u, and %d variables with the corresponding Windows user name, UNIX user name, and domain name, respectively.

The links field of the cifs_share.

name GET POST

Specifies the name of the CIFS share that you want to create. If this is a home directory share then the share name includes the pattern as %w (Windows user name), %u (UNIX user name) and %d (Windows domain name) variables in any combination with this parameter to generate shares dynamically.

Example: HR_SHARE

namespace_caching GET POST PATCH

Specifies whether or not the SMB clients connecting to this share can cache the directory enumeration results returned by the CIFS servers.

no_strict_security GET POST PATCH

Specifies whether or not CIFS clients can follow a unix symlinks outside the share boundaries.

offline_files GET POST PATCH

Offline Files The supported values are:

  • none - Clients are not permitted to cache files for offline access.
  • manual - Clients may cache files that are explicitly selected by the user for offline access.
  • documents - Clients may automatically cache files that are used by the user for offline access.
  • programs - Clients may automatically cache files that are used by the user for offline access and may use those files in an offline mode even if the share is available.

Valid choices:

  • none
  • manual
  • documents
  • programs
oplocks GET POST PATCH

Specify whether opportunistic locks are enabled on this share. "Oplocks" allow clients to lock files and cache content locally, which can increase performance for file operations.

path GET POST PATCH

The fully-qualified pathname in the owning SVM namespace that is shared through this share. If this is a home directory share then the path should be dynamic by specifying the pattern %w (Windows user name), %u (UNIX user name), or %d (domain name) variables in any combination. ONTAP generates the path dynamically for the connected user and this path is appended to each search path to find the full Home Directory path.

Example: /volume_1/eng_vol/

show_snapshot GET POST PATCH

Specifies whether or not the Snapshot copies can be viewed and traversed by clients.

svm GET POST PATCH
