|_create_time||Timestamp of resource creation||EpochMsTimestamp||Readonly
|_create_user||ID of the user who created this resource||string||Readonly|
|_last_modified_time||Timestamp of last modification||EpochMsTimestamp||Readonly
|_last_modified_user||ID of the user who last modified this resource||string||Readonly|
|_links||References related to this resource
The server will populate this field when returing the resource. Ignored on PUT and POST.
|array of ResourceLink||Readonly|
|_protection||Indicates protection status of this resource
Protection status is one of the following:
PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is not allowed
to modify it.
NOT_PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is allowed
to modify it
REQUIRE_OVERRIDE - the client who retrieved the entity is a super
user and can modify it, but only when providing
the request header X-Allow-Overwrite=true.
UNKNOWN - the _protection field could not be determined for this
|_revision||Generation of this resource config
The _revision property describes the current revision of the resource. To prevent clients from overwriting each other's changes, PUT operations must include the current _revision of the resource, which clients should obtain by issuing a GET operation. If the _revision provided in a PUT request is missing or stale, the operation will be rejected.
|_schema||Schema for this resource||string||Readonly|
|_self||Link to this resource||SelfResourceLink||Readonly|
|_system_owned||Indicates system owned resource||boolean||Readonly|
|allow_changing_vdr_mac_in_use||A flag to indicate if changing the VDR MAC being used is allowed
When this flag is set to true, it is allowed to change the VDR MAC being used by existing transport nodes in a NSX system. The VDR MAC used by a host switch in a transport node is decided by the OVERLAY transport zone(s) which the host switch joins. If any of the OVERLAY transport zone(s) has "nested_nsx" property set to true, the MAC in "vdr_mac_nested" is used; otherwise the MAC in "vdr_mac" is used. Thus the VDR MAC being used by a host switch in a transport node can be changed in below ways. If the host switch is not in any OVERLAY transport zone whose "nested_nsx" property is true but is in an OVERLAY transport zone, the first way is updating the "vdr_mac" property. The 2nd way is updating one of the OVERLAY tranport zones joined by the host switch to set "nested_nsx" property true which will make the host switch use the VDR MAC in "vdr_mac_nested". The third way is directly updating the transport node to add an OVERLAY transport zone whose "nested_nsx" property is true into the host switch which will also make the host switch use the VDR MAC in "vdr_mac_nested". If the host switch is in some OVERLAY transport zone(s) whose "nested_nsx" property is true, the first way is updating the "vdr_mac_nested" property. The 2nd way is updating all those OVERLAY tranport zones to set "nested_nsx" property false which will make the host switch use the VDR MAC in "vdr_mac". The third way is directly updating the transport node to remove all those OVERLAY transport zones from the host switch which will also make the host switch use the VDR MAC in "vdr_mac". Please note that changing the VDR MAC being used by existing transport nodes will most likely cause traffic disruption and network outage!
|arp_limit_per_gateway||ARP limit per Tier0/Tier1 gateway
Global configuration of maximum number of ARP entries per transport
node at each Tier0/Tier1 gateway.
|children||subtree for this type within policy tree
subtree for this type within policy tree containing nested elements.
|array of ChildPolicyConfigResource
Children are not allowed for this type
|description||Description of this resource||string||Maximum length: 1024
|display_name||Identifier to use when displaying entity in logs or GUI
Defaults to ID if not set
|string||Maximum length: 255
|fips||FIPS enabled config
Contains the FIPSGlobalConfig object.
|id||Unique identifier of this resource||string||Sortable|
|l3_forwarding_mode||L3 forwarding mode
Configure forwarding mode for routing. This setting does not
restrict configuration for other modes.
|string||Enum: IPV4_ONLY, IPV4_AND_IPV6
|marked_for_delete||Indicates whether the intent object is marked for deletion
Intent objects are not directly deleted from the system when a delete
is invoked on them. They are marked for deletion and only when all the
realized entities for that intent object gets deleted, the intent object
is deleted. Objects that are marked for deletion are not returned in
GET call. One can use the search API to get these objects.
Maximum transmission unit (MTU) specifies the size of the largest
packet that a network protocol can transmit.
This is the global default MTU for all the EXTERNAL (uplink) and
SERVICE (CSP) interfaces in the NSX domain. There is no option to
override this value at the transport zone level or transport node
|operation_collectors||Operation global collector config
The operation collector is defined to receive stats from hosts.
The VRNI and WAVE_FRONT collector type can be defined to collect the metric data.
The WAVE_FRONT collector type can only be used in VMC mode.
|array of GlobalCollectorConfig
(Abstract type: pass one of the following concrete types)
|overridden||Indicates whether this object is the overridden intent object
Global intent objects cannot be modified by the user.
However, certain global intent objects can be overridden locally by use
of this property. In such cases, the overridden local values take
precedence over the globally defined values for the properties.
|parent_path||Path of its parent
Path of its parent
|path||Absolute path of this object
Absolute path of this object
|relative_path||Relative path of this object
Path relative from its parent
|resource_type||Must be set to the value GlobalConfig||string|
|tags||Opaque identifiers meaningful to the API user||array of Tag||Maximum items: 30|
|unique_id||A unique identifier assigned by the system
This is a UUID generated by the GM/LM to uniquely identify
entites in a federated environment. For entities that are
stretched across multiple sites, the same ID will be used
on all the stretched sites.
|uplink_mtu_threshold||Upper threshold for MTU on physical and logical uplinks
This value defines the upper threshold for the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) value that can be configured at a physical uplink level or a logical routing uplink level in a NSX domain. All Uplink profiles validate against this value so that the MTU specified in an Uplink profile does not exceed this global upper threshold. Similarly, when this value is modified, the new value must be greater than or equal to any existing Uplink profile's MTU.
|vdr_mac||MAC address of the Virtual Distributed Router (VDR) port
This is the global default MAC address for all VDRs in all transport nodes in a NSX system. It can be changed only when there is no transport node in the NSX system. This value cannot be same as vdr_mac_nested. When the property "allow_changing_vdr_mac_in_use" is false, it can not be changed if the current VDR MAC is being used by any transport node. A transport node uses this VDR MAC if any host switch in the node is in OVERLAY transport zone(s) but none of the transport zone(s) has "nested_nsx" property being true.
|vdr_mac_nested||The MAC address of the Virtual Distributed Router (VDR) port in a nested NSX environment.
This is the global default MAC address for all VDRs in all transport nodes in a NSX system nested in another NSX system. It can be changed only when there is no transport node in the NSX system. All transport zones in such a nested NSX system will have the "nested_nsx" property being true so that all transport nodes will use this MAC for the VDR ports to avoid conflict with the VDR MAC in the outer NSX system. When the property "allow_changing_vdr_mac_in_use" is false, it can not be changed if the current VDR MAC is being used by any transport node in a nested NSX environment. A transport node uses this VDR MAC if any host switch in the node is in an OVERLAY transport zone whose "nested_nsx" property is true.
