BIQ-IQ and API (CLI)

Hi ,

We would like to integrate the servers with the BIGIQ so that we can automate few manual processes.

When the server team make any changes, we manually require to disable the pool member on the LTM and then enable it after the server team's work. To automate this, We would like to add a step in the script to make a call to the BIGIQ and disable the pool member and then enable it after the work.

The question is , how to make changes to the LTM pool on the BIGIQ, can we make cli changes on the BIGIQ?

 

Thanks,

Reddy

Why not use the monitor dissable string or give the server team access to the BIG-IQ just to being able to view things and dissable pool members (with big-iq RBAC access rights this is possible):

As your VIP already exists this is perfect for you to import the legacy app and give the server team access to this application for monitoring and to disable/enable the pool members:

@Reddy1 What about using AS3 to manage your LTM configuration. It's our F5 declarative AS3 and it's super easy to automate using the API. FYI there is a new tool that can help you migrate your BIG-IP config to AS3 with the per-app migration, it is called F5 Journeys App.
