portobject

This module contains PortObject implementation.

There is no need to import this module directly. Use the methods of the Ruleset object to create and manipulate PortObjects.

>>> o = r.object_add("/PortObjects/Test")
>>> o.add("80")
>>> o.add("6667-6669")
>>> print o.items
['80', '6667-6669']

Rename the current object
set_visible(self, visible)
Set or reset the visible flag on the current object
Class Variables:
Item PortObject Item implementation.
Properties:
attributes Arbitrary key/value attributes stored for this object
base_path Only the type portion of the path
creation_date Date and time when this object was created
creator Username that created this object
fullpath Complete path including name of object
id Database id of object

add(self, value, exclude=False)

Adds a PortObject item to this PortObject.

Parameters:
  • value (str) - The value is a string describing the PortObject item. The type of the item will be automatically detected from the string. The following syntax is valid:
    • Single port, just give the plain number nn
    • Port range, give the start and stop port number with a dash as delimiter nn-mm
  • exclude (boolean) - If this is set to True the item will be a exclude Item instead of a include Item.

move(self, newparent)

Moves a object to somewhere else in the tree

destroys the cache

Parameters:
  • newparent (str) - a path where the new object should reside. Must start with the same objecttype. I.e. you can't move a NetObject to VlanIdObject.
Exceptions raised:
  • ValueError - If the rule is global.
  • ValueError - If you specify an invalid path.

remove(self, item)

Removes an Item from this Object

Parameters:
  • item (Item or str) - Either you send in the Item class there or you send a string with the value. The first Item that matches will be removed.
remove is deprecated: The item argument can also be an integer specifying the id number of the item to be removed. This is usage deprecated, instead use the remove_id method.

remove_id(self, id)

Removes an Item from this Object by its idnumber.

>>> i=o.add(7)
>>> o.remove_id(i.id)
Parameters:
  • item (int) - ID-number of the item to remove

rename(self, newname)

Rename the current object

destroys netobject cache

Parameters:
  • newname (str) - The name that the object should have after rename process
Exceptions raised:
  • ValueError - If the rule is global.

set_visible(self, visible)

Set or reset the visible flag on the current object.

Parameters:
  • visible (bool) - True or False value for the flag.
Exceptions raised:
  • ValueError - If the rule is global.

attributes

Arbitrary key/value attributes stored for this object.

Attributes stored on objects doesn't affect ruleset evaluation, and are designed to be used by integrations to assign integration specific data to objects. The client does special handling for some attributes, such as "hidden" and "automatic".

>>> o.attributes
{}
>>> o.attributes['test'] = "Arbitrary string value"
>>> o.attributes
{'test': "Arbitrary string value"}

base_path

Only the type portion of the path

creation_date

Date and time when this object was created

creator

Username that created this object

fullpath

Complete path including name of object

id

Database id of object.

The unique (for this object type) id number used to refer to the object in rule conditions.

is_global

True if this is object is not from the local system

items

List of items associated with this object

machineid

Deprecated method to access 'systemid'.

modification_date

Date and time when this object was last modified

modified

Deprecated method to access 'modification_date'.

modified_by

Username that last modified this object

name

Name of the object.

This is the name of the object, excluding path. Note that name is utf-8 encoded data in a string, to get a unicode string use o.name.decode("utf-8").

To change the name of an object use the rename method.

parent

id of parent object (or zero)

path

Complete path to where the object is excluding the object name.

systemid

System ID of the PacketLogic this object belongs to

type

Number representing the type of object

visible

True if the object is visible in the GUI
