Problem this snippet solves:

This uses BIGREST SDK API to save/download the ucs file.

Adding it here since I couldn't find a similar one,

How to use this snippet:

Based on Python3 and BigREST (https://bigrest.readthedocs.io)

Code :

#Import needed libraries

from bigrest.bigip import BIGIP

import getpass



#Replace the host name as needed

host="xx.xx.xx.xx"

user=input('Username')

pw= getpass.getpass(prompt='Password:')


#Declare the ucs filename, if needed

ucsfile="test.ucs"


#Connect to device

device = BIGIP(host, user, pw)


data = {}

data["command"] = "save"

data["name"] = ucsfile


#You may get timeout exception below even if the file has been created

task = device.task_start("/mgmt/tm/sys/ucs", data)

device.task_wait(task)

if device.task_completed(task):

   device.task_result(task)

   print("Backup has been completed.")

else:

   raise Exception()



#The below will download the file to the same folder as the script

device.download("/mgmt/shared/file-transfer/ucs-downloads/", ucsfile)

Tested this on version:

13.1
