GetSet

Description#

The getset command is a combination of the gNMI Get RPC and the gNMI Set RPC.

It allows to conditionally execute a Set RPC based on a condition evaluated against a GetResponse.

The condition written as a jq expression, is specified using the flag --condition.

The SetRPC is executed only if the condition evaluates to true

Usage#

gnmic [global-flags] getset [local-flags]

gnmic [global-flags] gas [local-flags]

gnmic [global-flags] gs [local-flags]

Flags#

prefix#

As per path prefixes, the prefix [--prefix] flag represents a common prefix that is applied to all paths specified using the local --get, --update, --replace and --delete flags.

Defaults to "".

get#

The mandatory get flag [--get] is used to specify the single path used in the Get RPC.

model#

The optional model flag [--model] is used to specify the schema definition modules that the target should use when returning a GetResponse. The model name should match the names returned in Capabilities RPC. Currently only single model name is supported.

target#

With the optional [--target] flag it is possible to supply the path target information in the prefix field of the GetRequest message.

type#

The type flag [--type] is used to specify the data type requested from the server.

One of: ALL, CONFIG, STATE, OPERATIONAL (defaults to "ALL")

condition#

The [--condition] is a jq expression that can be used to determine if the Set Request is executed based on the Get Response values.

update#

The [--update] specifies a jq expression used to build the Set Request update path.

replace#

The [--replace] specifies a jq expression used to build the Set Request replace path.

delete#

The [--delete] specifies a jq expression used to build the Set Request delete path.

value#

The [--value] specifies a jq expression used to build the Set Request value.

Examples#

The command in the below example does the following:

  • gets the list of interface indexes to interface name mapping,

  • checks if the interface index (ifindex) 70 exists,

  • if it does, the set request changes the interface state to enable using the interface name.

gnmic getset -a <ip:port> \
    --get /interface/ifindex \
    --condition '.[] | .updates[].values[""]["srl_nokia-interfaces:interface"][] | select(.ifindex==70) | (.name != "" or .name !=null)' \
    --update '.[] | .updates[].values[""]["srl_nokia-interfaces:interface"][] | select(.ifindex==70) | "interface[name=" + .name + "]/admin-state"' \
    --value enable
