Problem this snippet solves:

Here's a simple script that shows token authentication working.


How to use this snippet:

Replace the "test" and "api" variables with your username and password. Set the BIG-IP management IP variable in target_bigip.

Code :

#!/usr/bin/env python3  

import json,requests  
requests.packages.urllib3.disable_warnings()  
  
target_bigip = '10.1.1.134'  
  
def tokenauth(username,password):  
  apiCall = requests.session()  
  apiPayload = {}  
  apiHeaders = {}  
  apiPayload['username'] = username  
  apiPayload['password'] = password  
  apiPayload['loginProviderName'] = 'tmos'  
  apiHeaders['Content-type'] = 'application/json'  
  apiUrl = 'https://' + target_bigip + '/mgmt/shared/authn/login'  
  apiResponse = apiCall.post(apiUrl,data=json.dumps(apiPayload),verify=False,headers=apiHeaders)  
  apiResponseJson = json.loads(str(apiResponse.text))  
  return(apiResponseJson['token']['token'])  
  
def restput(token,path,payload):  
  apiCall = requests.session()  
  apiCall.auth = None  
  apiHeaders = {}  
  apiHeaders['Content-type'] = 'application/json'  
  apiHeaders['X-F5-Auth-Token'] = token  
  apiUrl = 'https://' + target_bigip + path  
  apiResponse = apiCall.put(apiUrl,headers=apiHeaders,data=json.dumps(payload),verify=False)  
  return(apiResponse.text)  
  
if __name__ == "__main__":  
  # Perform token authentication  
  print('Grabbing auth token')  
  mytoken = tokenauth('rest','api')  
  print(mytoken)  
  # Make an API call using the token  
  print('Making the API call')  
  mycall = restput(mytoken,'/mgmt/tm/sys/ssh',{"banner-text":"UPDATED!"})  
  print('API response: ' + mycall)  
  quit()
