transaction_commit

Code

BIGIP.transaction_commit() → bigrest.common.restobject.RESTObject

Commit a transaction on the device.

Sends an HTTP PATCH request to the iControl REST API.

Exceptions:
RESTAPIError: Raised when iControl REST API returns an error.

Example

transaction_create = device.transaction_create()
data = {}
data["name"] = "/bigrest/bigrest_pool"
device.create("/mgmt/tm/ltm/pool", data)
data = {}
data["name"] = "/bigrest/bigrest_vs"
data["destination"] = "10.17.0.2%0:80"
device.create("/mgmt/tm/ltm/virtual", data)
device.transaction_commit()

Explanation

Commit will run all commands you added to the transaction.
In this context, commands are all actions you added to the transaction.
In this example, we create a pool and a virtual server.
However, they will only be created when we commit the transaction.
Also, if one of the commands fails, all commands are canceled.
