REST APIs for NETGEAR

Hi Netgear support, I see in the latest firmware release notes that REST API's are now supported on the platform.

 

Enhancements:

  • Added REST APIs for NETGEAR partners to develop the applications.

 

Will the REST API's ever be published for users/consumers for network automation ? We've been using raw ssh commands via ansible for scripting/automation but working with API's is a lot less cludgy than just plain ssh.

 

Would be really awesome if something at this price point could be API programmable and managed fully via Ansible/Python.

Hi there

 

thank you, good spot!

 

Yes absolutely, the Rest API is now available in M4300 and M4500 switches, the agent is built-in in the firmware already.

 

We have all the documentation ready, but we have a special process to deliver it. Please reach out to ProAVDesign@netgear.com by email and we will deliver it to you.

 

Regards,

Re: REST APIs for NETGEAR

I would also vey really interested in their being a vendor supported Ansible Collection/Module for Netgear M4300's. 

 

Someone who is more versed with the Netgear Rest API could possibly use ansible-community/ansible.content_builder: A collection to scaffold Ansible plugins. (github.com) to build an ansible module.

 

I gave it a very quick go and had no luck but I am pretty sure its something in my environment. Someone else might have more luck.
