problem adding interoperable device via web API

Hello Guys

I am trying to create interoperable device via python web API (I have v1.1)

I have this payload to put into commend 'add-generic-object'

object = {
'create': 'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiGatewayPlain',
'name': deviceName,
'ipaddr': deviceIP,
'thirdPartyEncryption': True,
'osInfo': {
'osName': 'Gaia'
},
'vpn': {
'create': 'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiVpn',
'owned-object': {
'vpnClientsSettingsForGateway': {
'create':
'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiVpnClientsSettingsForGateway',
'owned-object': {
'endpointVpnClientSettings': {
'create':
'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiEndpointVpnClientSettingsForGateway',
'owned-object': {
'endpointVpnEnable': True
}
}
}
},
'ike': {
'create': 'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiIke',
},
'sslNe': {
'create': 'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiSslNetworkExtender',
'owned-object': {
'sslEnable': False,
'gwCertificate': 'defaultCert'
}
},
'isakmpIpcompSupport': True,
'isakmpUniversalSupport': True,
}
},
'dataSourceSettings': None,
'nat': None,
'encdomain': 'ADDRESSES_BEHIND_GW',
'ignore-warnings': True,
'color': color.upper()}

After I run script, object is visible in Interoperable devices, but I cannot use is. It is NOT visible when I try it add to VPN communities and also when I try add VPN community to this object it ends with error: A blocking validation error was found: Gateway does not comply to 'Participant Gateways' of Meshed community. In order to comply the gateway needs to be VPN installed and of type Host / Gateway / Cluster / Interoperable device.

Object can be 'fixed' via GUI by setting IPSec VPN -> Traditional mode configuration -> Select some enc and hash  (i.e. 3des sha1) -> OK, But I cannot find the way set this through set-gneric-object

this does not work:

{'uid': objectUID, 'vpn' : {'ike' : {'isakmpHashmethods': ['SHA1']}}}

what am I doing wrong? Via dbedit it works, but I would like to use clearer way ...

If you pass these both objects to editor and compare it, you will find that the objects ARE ALMOST THE SAME!. What is different are obviously UIDs of components, time of creation, admin username (I am using -API for scripts) and correct object has no snmp section while script obkect has snmp section. So... what can be wrong with second object, or other question, what to change in script to be correct???

Another strange thing is, when I run this command from command line from SmartConsole, the same object will be almost correct. But only almost... For first it will NOT be visible fro VPN Community, but if you assign VPN Community to the object, it will be OK and if you remove it again, after this it will be now visible from VPN Community too.

And If I create same object through dbedit with something like this (template for jinja2):

create gateway_plain {{ peerName }}
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} DAG false
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} color {{ color }}
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} VPN VPN
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} VPN:third_party_encryption true
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} VPN:IKE IKE
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} SNMP NULL
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} type gateway
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} add_adtr_rule false
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} ipaddr {{ peerIP }}
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} encdomain manual
modify network_objects {{ peerName }} manual_encdomain network_objects:{{ cryptoDomainGrp }}
update_all

It will work without any issue...

So it seems, that 4 different methods of creating the same Interoperable device (GUI, command line API, WEB API and dbedit) have different results... Strange, isnt't it?

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Another strange thing is that GUI created Interoperable object HAS in traditional mode parameters DES and MD5 selected, but these params are not shown in list from command, show generic-object... Why?

So after this recherche I think something like this

{'uid': result['uid'], 'vpn' : {'ike' : {'isakmpHashmethods': ['MD5']}}}
{'uid': result['uid'], 'vpn' : {'ike' : {'isakmpEncmethods': ['DES']}}}

should definitelly help to create correct iteroperable device through WEB API, but I did not find way how to set  list of methods to isakmpHashmethods and isakmpEncmethods using add generic-object or set generic-object... Is there any possibility how to do it? Thanks for help...

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Hello again ...

I finally found in other thread "hack" with dbedit - change something (for example color), update_all, change something back, update_all. And it works....

But it makes no sence, if I NEED to use dbedit, I can make whole object through it, am I right? And I really wanted to avoid in my script connecting via ssh to SmartCenter (or in our case MDS) and run dbedit commands...

There istn't really another way to make it work WITHOUT dbedit?

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Right now, you are correct: no way to make this object entirely thru API.

There are a handful of objects like this currently (gateway cluster objects being most requested).

We do plan to address this in later releases.

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

OK, thnx very much. I can live with this somehow ... Another quick question. We need also create dynamic Interoperable devices ... Problem is, that if you create dynamic interoperable device through GUI, it assign some IP 0.0.x.y and increment some internal counter. I can do the same through dbedit or generic-object API, but I need to select IP manually. Is it OK to select some random "dynamic" IP from some range? I am really afraid to pud such "workaround" to production. Best way I am doing this now is creating non dynamic device with API and then finish configuration through GUI, where I just create dynamic interface and change type to dynamic (DAG)... Is there any workaround to correctly fully automate this action?

Not sure.

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Just for you guys, If you will have same problem. You really don't need use dbedit for alter color. But you really have to change something on newly created object (for example color is easiest). It works for me when I create interoperable device using add-generic-object and publish, then I change color with command set-generic-object (color is in CAPS) and again publish and then object is finally visible in VPN communities.

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Hello,

I have maybe final question regarding this Interoperable device creation. I see, that if you creating some section or list of interfaces for example, with add-generic-object you are using "com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CPSomething" .

Is there any list of these dummy classes? Because I finally don't need use dbedit at all, as I mentioned in my last comment, but if I have Interoperable device with certificate and I want to check DN, in object created via GUI show-generic-object looks like this:

isakmpMatchpeer:
  - "DN"

and same object without checked DN checkbox looks like this

isakmpMatchpeer: []

With dbedit I can create this "DN" element with command

addelement network_objects someObjectName VPN:isakmp.matchpeer DN.

I expect that for the same action in add-generic-objects it should be something like this:

'isakmpMatchpeer' : {'create' : 'com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CP????} . maybe CPDN

Shortly: I need create in tree vpn ->  isakmpMatcheer list with one element "DN".

Is there any way how to do it with add-generic-object or set-generic-object or I still need to use for this dbedit?

thnx much.

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Hello Michael,

I'm experiencing same "problems".

Maybe I'm something for you: I've discovered the class "com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiDAGInterface" usefull to add an external interface with dynamic IP without getting into problems when try to modify the object from GUI (if I create an "com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiInterface" with dynamicIp field setted to true when I try to modify object usong GUI it raise a strange error ... before this 'discovery' the only solution I had was to add the interface using GUI).

Shoud be wonderfull if CheckPoint will provide more complete documentation about Man API usage.

Now I'm trying to solve the "other problem": add elements using API.

I've to add elements to "isakmpHashmethods" and "isakmpEncmethods" ..... but at the moment I'm able to do it only using dbedit Smiley Sad ..... I keep trying ...

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

I've realized that I'd made a typo on class name (no copy'n'paste), the correct class name is "com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiDagInterface"

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Thnx for info I will test it ...I have issue with DAG, that if you create object through GUI it will assign to this object some phantom IP (0.0.x.y) and keeps counter for already assigned addresses somewhere. But if I will create object with dbedit, I don't know how to use this internal counter, I need to choose object IP by myself. And I don't know if I choose something, if it will not mess whole database or SmartCenter at all. So I am afraid to do it in production. In testing management it kinda works. Anyway here is my dbedit script for create DAG Interoprable device.

I don't think you need to add isakmp methods to the Interoperable device... Methods in interoperable device are important only if you run VPN rulebase in traditional mode (Which is not supported now). It is totally ok to set up crypto methods only in VPN community ... If you want I can pass my solution for VPN community also... 

But even with possibility adding DAG interface, it is not solving my problem with adding DN list. I need dummy class like this. But I dont know if it exists

com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiDN

If I can ask, how and where did you discover this DAG dummy class? Maybe we can find another classes, which checkpoint is silently hiding from us :-)

Re: problem adding interoperable device via web API

Hi Michael,

I'm not able to find where checkpoint puts the "DAG IP counter", as you know checkpoint increment this every time you configure a gw from SmartConsole (even if you discard changes).

In ipaddr filed of a dag gw you have to use an IP from 0.0.0.0/8 network (0.0.0.0 excluded)

I think that checkpoint do it in that way hoping that nobody will configure more that ~16581375 gateways ....

If you configure through api a gw using a following IP smartconsole it doesn't check if the ip exists, and a duplication results in (I doesn't test the consequences of this situation ... ).

A workaround could be to use the same "checkpoint thinking" .... but in reverse order: starting using 0.255.255.255 and go backwards, maybe using a script that will find the last used IP to assign the previous one to the new gw. In that way is improbable that the two counters will meed each others.

To discover checkpoint classes .... I've started doing "bruteforce" .... but then I've found the ws schema!

isakmpMatchpeer type is not related to a class, let me show:

--------------------------------------------

               <xs:element maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="0" name="isakmpMatchpeer" nillable="true" type="tns:CpmiPublicKeyMatchingCriteriaIntCpmiPublicKeyMatchingCriteriaIsakmpMatchpeer">
                        <xs:annotation>
                            <xs:appinfo>
                                <DisplayName description="" value="Matching Criteria List"/>
                            </xs:appinfo>
                        </xs:annotation>
                </xs:element>

--------------------------------------------

is only a restriction (I think ... I'm not so 'in touch' with web services schemas)

--------------------------------------------

    <xs:simpleType name="CpmiPublicKeyMatchingCriteriaIntCpmiPublicKeyMatchingCriteriaIsakmpMatchpeer">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
            <xs:enumeration value="DN"/>
            <xs:enumeration value="EMAIL"/>
            <xs:enumeration value="DNS_IP"/>
        </xs:restriction>
    </xs:simpleType>

--------------------------------------------

but a wasn't able to fill isakmpMatchpeer field anyway.

Maybe using two brains we can reach a solution ...
