Gateway and Zone Management

createGateway

Creates a new gateway.

Scenario: You have two zones, ZoneA and ZoneB. ResourceA in ZoneA is accessible from ResourceB in ZoneB, and conversely—communication between specified gateway resources is enabled with host/port information recorded in each resource object. Other resources in each zone are restricted to talking to resources within their zone only. Creating a gateway between ResourceA and ResourceB to link the two zones enables resources from one zone to communicate with the other using ResourceA and ResourceB.

You must specify gatewayName.

Arguments Descriptions

gatewayName

The name of the gateway that must be unique among all gateway names.

Argument type: String

description

(Optional) A plain text or HTML description for this object. If using HTML, you must surround your text with <html> …​ </html> tags. The only HTML tags allowed in the text are: <a> <b> <br> <div> <dl> <font> <i> <li> <ol> <p> <pre> <span> <style> <table> <tc> <td> <th> <tr> <ul>.

gatewayDisabled

(Optional) < Boolean flag— 0|1|true|false >

If set to 1 or true, the gateway is disabled.

Argument type: Boolean
