Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.6 and later
  • Private CLI passthrough REST API

Issue

Example:

[API]:

curl -kX GET https://<cluster-mgmt>/api/cloud/targets?return_records=true&return_timeout=15 -H  "accept: application/json" -H  "authorization: Basic fwXXXXXXXXXXdf"

[RESPONSE]:

{
  "records": [
    {
      "uuid": "14XXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXc8",
      "name": "os1"
    }
  ],
  "num_records": 1
}

  • However, for the same user, the private CLI REST APIs fail with the error:

Example:

[API]:

curl -X GET https://<cluster-mgmt>/api/private/cli/storage/aggregate/object-store?fields=object-store-availability -H "accept: application/json" -H "authorization: Basic fwXXXXXXXXXXdf"

[RESPONSE]:

{
  "error": {
    "message": "API not found",
    "code": "3"
  }
}

  • REST APIs (Standard and CLI passthrough both) working normally for the admin user.
