Properties (click to see Operations)

Name Data Type Permissions Description
name
<String>
Read-write
Name of the compression action. Must begin with an ASCII alphabetic or underscore (_) character, and must contain only ASCII alphanumeric, underscore, hash (#), period (.), space, colon (:), at (@), equals (=), and hyphen (-) characters. Can be changed after the action is added.

The following requirement applies only to the NetScaler CLI:
If the name includes one or more spaces, enclose the name in double or single quotation marks (for example, "my cmp action" or 'my cmp action').
Minimum length = 1
cmptype
<String>
Read-write
Type of compression performed by this action.
Available settings function as follows:
* COMPRESS - Apply GZIP or DEFLATE compression to the response, depending on the request header. Prefer GZIP.
* GZIP - Apply GZIP compression.
* DEFLATE - Apply DEFLATE compression.
* NOCOMPRESS - Do not compress the response if the request matches a policy that uses this action.
Possible values = compress, gzip, deflate, nocompress
addvaryheader
<String>
Read-write
Control insertion of the Vary header in HTTP responses compressed by NetScaler. Intermediate caches store different versions of the response for different values of the headers present in the Vary response header.
Default value: GLOBAL
Possible values = GLOBAL, DISABLED, ENABLED
varyheadervalue
<String>
Read-write
The value of the HTTP Vary header for compressed responses.
Minimum length = 1
deltatype
<String>
Read-write
The type of delta action (if delta type compression action is defined).
Default value: PERURL
Possible values = PERURL, PERPOLICY
newname
<String>
Read-write
New name for the compression action. Must begin with an ASCII alphabetic or underscore (_) character, and must contain only ASCII alphanumeric, underscore, hash (#), period (.), space, colon (:), at
(@), equals (=), and hyphen (-) characters.
Choose a name that can be correlated with the function that the action performs.

The following requirement applies only to the NetScaler CLI:
If the name includes one or more spaces, enclose the name in double or single quotation marks (for example, "my cmp action" or 'my cmp action').
Minimum length = 1
builtin
<String[]>
Read-only
Flag to determine whether compression is default or not.
Possible values = MODIFIABLE, DELETABLE, IMMUTABLE, PARTITION_ALL
isdefault
<Boolean>
Read-only
A value of true is returned if it is a default policy.
__count
<Double>
Read-only
count parameter

Operations (click to see Properties)

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the "warning" query parameter as "yes". For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http://<netscaler-ip-address>/nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code "209 X-NITRO-WARNING".

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER:<username>

    X-NITRO-PASS:<password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN=<tokenvalue>
