Add simple-cluster with groups over API

Hello everybody!

I wanted to add a new simple cluster object over the mgmt-API including a list of groups with the "add-simple-cluster" command.

However if i add the "groups" parameter with a list of group names as value an error occurs:
"Validation failed with 1 blocking-error -> blocking-errors: -message: One of the objects that you selected could not be linked."

I think the "groups" parameter is not expecting a list of group names.

I don't understand it because with the "add-simple-gateway" command it works as expected.

So does anybody know what the groups parameter expects and can provide an example? Because in the Management API Reference it only says "Object" as an expected value for the "groups" parameter, but i don't know what is meant by that?

Here is a sample json where i get this error:

{
"name" : <name>,
"ip-address" : <ip-address>,
"groups" : [list of group names]
}

Can you send an example of command you tried? I can give it a go in R81.20 lab

I use the Python sdk API library: 
GitHub - CheckPointSW/cp_mgmt_api_python_sdk: Check Point API Python Development Kit simplifies the ...

Here is sample:

MGMT_SERVER_IP = <server-ip>
client_args = APIClientArgs(server=MGMT_SERVER_IP)
with APIClient(client_args) as client:
data = {
    "name" : "cluster-name",
    "ip-address" : "1.1.1.1",
    "groups" : [list of existing group names]
}
response = client.api_call("add-simple-cluster", data)
if response.success:
    print("success")
else:
    print(f"{response.error_message}")

I was thinking below is what you tried, but let me test it.

I am using the WEB-API and therefore a python library exist which handles the https connection and so on.

But basically it is the same as normal, because i have to build the json and then call the library function to send it to the server.

Surely I have to login before calling the library function with the login command.

Sorry, forgot to update, apologies. I got same issue as you in my R81.20 lab, but will check again tomorrow. Seems like there is minor syntax error somewhere, just my gut feeling, but I could be mistaken.

Did you use a list of groups or what did you use?

And I am using a R81.10 Management Server, can you test it with this version as well?

Honestly, I would contact TAC and provide all the details, as it appears R81.10 code related.
