Overview

Name mapping is used to map CIFS identities to UNIX identities, Kerberos identities to UNIX identities, and UNIX identities to CIFS identities. It needs this information to obtain user credentials and provide proper file access regardless of whether they are connecting from an NFS client or a CIFS client.
The system keeps a set of conversion rules for each Storage Virtual Machine (SVM). Each rule consists of two pieces: a pattern and a replacement. Conversions start at the beginning of the appropriate list and perform a substitution based on the first matching rule. The pattern is a UNIX-style regular expression. The replacement is a string containing escape sequences representing subexpressions from the pattern, as in the UNIX sed program.
Name mappings are applied in the order in which they occur in the priority list; for example, a name mapping that occurs at position 2 in the priority list is applied before a name mapping that occurs at position 3. Each mapping direction (Kerberos-to-UNIX, Windows-to-UNIX, and UNIX-to-Windows) has its own priority list. You are prevented from creating two name mappings with the same pattern.

Examples

Creating a name-mapping with client_match as the ip-address

Use the following API to create a name-mapping. Note the return_records=true query parameter is used to obtain the newly created entry in the response.

from netapp_ontap import HostConnection
from netapp_ontap.resources import NameMapping

with HostConnection("<mgmt-ip>", username="admin", password="password", verify=False):
    resource = NameMapping()
    resource.client_match = "10.254.101.111/28"
    resource.direction = "win_unix"
    resource.index = 1
    resource.pattern = "ENGCIFS_AD_USER"
    resource.replacement = "unix_user1"
    resource.svm = {"name": "vs1", "uuid": "f71d3640-0226-11e9-8526-000c290a8c4b"}
    resource.post(hydrate=True)
    print(resource)

NameMapping(
    {
        "direction": "win_unix",
        "client_match": "10.254.101.111/28",
        "svm": {"uuid": "f71d3640-0226-11e9-8526-000c290a8c4b", "name": "vs1"},

        "index": 1,
        "replacement": "unix_user1",
    }
)

Creating a name-mapping with client_match as the hostname

Use the following API to create a name-mapping. Note the return_records=true query parameter is used to obtain the newly created entry in the response.

Classes

class NameMapping (*args, **kwargs)

Name mapping is used to map CIFS identities to UNIX identities, Kerberos identities to UNIX identities, and UNIX identities to CIFS identities. It needs this information to obtain user credentials and provide proper file access regardless of whether they are connecting from an NFS client or a CIFS client.

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('NameMapping')] = 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 the name mapping configuration.

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
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 the name mapping configuration for all SVMs.

  • vserver name-mapping 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.
