ifile creation

Hi All,

i am trying to create an iFile with below curl command ,

curl -k -u username:password -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"source":"/var/tmp/404.html","datastore":"ifile","state":"present","force":"yes"}' https://hostname/mgmt/tm/sys/file/ifile/~Common~404.html

and getting "{"code":400,"message":"enter ifile identifier","errorStack":[],"apiError":26214401}" in exception .

can someone help me what i am missing in this request ?

Also how would i able to make this iFile available to LTM once this is created for use .

basically i am looking for rest API of below two tmsh command

# tmsh create sys file ifile maintenance-splash-page.html source-path file:/var/tmp/splash-page.html

# tmsh create ltm ifile maintenance-splash-page.html file-name maintenance-splash-page.html
