Adding host and installing policy simulteneously

Jump to solution

Hello There,

 

I want to add host via web-service on a periodic basis with python script along with policy installation. after host adding there will be a policy installation. Is there any way to have host addition and policy installation side by side in the same session. I want to save time.

Thanks in advance

Not side by side as you must publish all changes before being able to perform a gateway installation, but you can do all of that within the same session.  Order would be:

1) Login and be granted Session-ID

2) Add Host Object

3) Publish Changes

4) Install policy to gateway

5) Logout session to de-allocate Session-ID.  (Very important to not forget this, otherwise if there are too many Session-IDs left hanging around waiting to be idled out it can cause various issues)
