Parameters

Parameter

Comments

cert_filepath

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

path to SSL client cert file (.pem).

not supported with python 2.6.

feature_flags

This should be in the form 9.10 or 9.10.1 with each element being an integer number.

When use_rest is set to auto, this may force a switch to ZAPI based on the version and platform capabilities.

Ignored with ZAPI.

hostname

string / required

The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.
