Automate with Citrix ADC and Nitro API
Time & Location
About the Event
Would you like to learn how to automate some repetitive Citrix ADC engineering and administrative tasks? Spend less time on admin work and more time innovating!!
Join us for this technical webinar where we will discuss the business value of automating common tasks on your Citrix ADC deployment. We will also review and demonstrate techniques for introducing automation using the NITRO API. The NITRO API is part of the Citrix ADC (formerly NetScaler) platform. It gives you full coverage access using your favorite programming or scripting languages.
Some topics we will cover:
- Creating/Modifying Load Balanced VIPS
- Binding Service Groups
- Enabling/Disabling Services
- Managing Certificates
- End-To-End Troubleshooting
In addition, we will discuss and demonstrate how you can build automation to empower your support team. Provide end to end visibility and troubleshooting data to the Line of Business and Support Teams. This will help minimize calls to your Network Engineering team during reported outages.
This discussion and demonstration will provide you with all the tools needed to get started with the NITRO API. Enabling faster issue resolution and visibility to your DevOps colleagues.
In short, we can show you how to use the NITRO API to reduce “Blame Management”.
Technical Background: In very complex environments, root cause is difficult to determine! We will show you how to gather all the necessary artifacts to determine the culprit.
To speed up this process, we have developed a script to check all load balancers, service groups, backend servers, and test custom monitor URIs. This will quickly identify the problem or eliminate the load balancer from the troubleshooting equation.
During this webinar we will discuss the following the high-level topics:
- Common Tasks to target for automation
- Deploying and Leveraging the NITRO API
- Developing Solutions with Python
- Inspecting and formatting JSON Output Data
- Why you should use REST API(s) to manage your infrastructure
The deep-dive technical topics:
- Citrix ADC Nitro API Overview
- Exploring and Testing REST API(s) with CURL, PostMan, and Python
- Scheduling, Formatting, and Presenting your output.
The webinar will be heavy on demonstrations and light on slides. We will also provide many reference links to use for following up and developing your knowledge.
