Hello,

I wrote a couple of (PowerShell-)scripts in an earlier version of XMC. I haven’t used them for a while and now, after upgrading t XMC 8.4 they don’t work anymore. Even the URLs don’t exist anymore. One call would be https://<IP>:8443/axis/services/NACEndSystemWebService/getAllNamedLists but this can’t be accessed anymore. What am I doing wrong? Different URL? Anything to configure in XMC? I would need the access pretty quick as I have to do some mass operation really urgent..

Thanx

__Leo!

Leo,

Do you run XMC with an NMS-ADV license?

It is needed for connect: https://community.extremenetworks.com/topic/show?tid=7824155&fid=222717

Hi,

 

thanx for your answer. I don’t know about the license, but I can see/use the connect API. What I’m looking fpr is the OneFabric Connect API witch IMHO is different. In the Connect API, you don’t find the geAllNamedLists call e.g.

Leo,

 

I’m unable to answer this question.

If it is urgent go trough GTAC

Hi.
the API works for me at XMC 8.5.0 (GA version). I am not aware of any changes in the AXIS API.

Please check the license. you need NMS-ADV-

Hi Leo,

 

I’ve been working with that API recently after a long break since 8.1 or 8.2, I saw that REST calls to one particular method of NACEndSystemWebService began to fail. The mainstream approach is to move to NBI (GraphQL, JSON over REST, I don’t know how to actually define that mix of terms) AFAIU.

https://documentation.extremenetworks.com/XMC_API/NBI/8.4_EA/index.html

What is cool in that, you either send a query or a mutation and within you specify what API component you refer to, and what exact data you wish to pull/modify, no longer fixed bulky request/response schemes.

If you need any advice on switching to this approach, let us know.

 

Hope that helps,

Tomasz
