Cert Invalid Parameter

I am getting a

400
response from the
/mgmt/tm/sys/crypto/cert
endpoint.

The body I am passing is:

{"command":"install","name":"testdomain","from-local-file":"/var/config/rest/downloads/testdomain.key"}
. The file exists and if I remove the file, I get an error that the file could not be copied, so I think this actually is copying this file.

The response body is:

Key management library returned bad status: -4, Invalid Parameter
.

Any help would be really appreciated. I am following the instruction here, but I am using token auth: https://devcentral.f5.com/questions/upload-ssl-keys-certs-via-icontrol-rest-api

This could be related to the issue I am having with uploading files, I opened a question here: https://devcentral.f5.com/questions/unable-to-upload-file-through-icontrol-rest-interface-49232

  • I believe this was a permission issue. I believe that the user I was trying failed. I ended up abandoning token auth and used a different user with basic auth and this started working.

  • I'm not sure what version you are on, but I had problems with the sys/crypto methods. Try using the /sys/file/ssl-key and /sys/file/ssl-cert methods instead.

     

  • This has been tested on 12 and 12.1. It seems to work fine without token auth (see my other comment). I can try your recommended method instead though and see what happens.

     

  • i'll test with tacacs on Monday and let you know as well. Away from office today.
