Users

API Module for working with EOS local user resources

The Users resource provides configuration of local user resources for an EOS node.

param username:The username parameter maps to the local username defined in the running-config.
type username:string
param nopassword:
 Configures the username to use no password at login. This parameter is mutually exclusive with secret
type nopassword:
 boolean
param privilege:
 Configures the user privilege level in EOS
type privilege:integer
param role:Configures the users role in EOS
type role:string
param secret:Configures the users secret (password) to use at login. This parameter is mutually exclusive with secret and is used in conjunction with format.
type secret:string
param format:Configures the format of the secret value. Accepted values for format are “cleartext”, “md5” and “sha512”
type format:string
class pyeapi.api.users.Users(node)

Bases: pyeapi.api.abstract.EntityCollection

The Users class provides a configuration resource for local users. The regex used here parses the running configuration to find username entries. There is extra logic in the regular expression to store the username as ‘user’ and then creates a backreference to find a following configuration line that might contain the users sshkey.

create(name, nopassword=None, secret=None, encryption=None)

Creates a new user on the local system.

Creating users requires either a secret (password) or the nopassword keyword to be specified.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – The name of the user to craete
  • nopassword (bool) – Configures the user to be able to authenticate without a password challenage
  • secret (str) – The secret (password) to assign to this user
  • encryption (str) – Specifies how the secret is encoded. Valid values are “cleartext”, “md5”, “sha512”. The default is “cleartext”
Returns:

True if the operation was successful otherwise False

Raises:

TypeError – if the required arguments are not satisfied

create_with_nopassword(name)

Creates a new user on the local node

Parameters:name (str) – The name of the user to create
Returns:True if the operation was successful otherwise False
create_with_secret(name, secret, encryption)

Creates a new user on the local node

Parameters:
  • name (str) – The name of the user to craete
  • secret (str) – The secret (password) to assign to this user
  • encryption (str) – Specifies how the secret is encoded. Valid values are “cleartext”, “md5”, “sha512”. The default is “cleartext”
Returns:

True if the operation was successful otherwise False

get(name)

Returns the local user configuration as a resource dict

Parameters:name (str) – The username to return from the nodes global running- config.
Returns:A resource dict object

If the name does not exist, then None is returned

Return type:dict
getall()

Returns all local users configuration as a resource dict

Returns:A dict of usernames with a nested resource dict object
Return type:dict
set_privilege(name, value=None)

Configures the user privilege value in EOS

Parameters:
  • name (str) – The name of the user to craete
  • value (int) – The privilege value to assign to the user. Valid values are in the range of 0 to 15
Returns:

True if the operation was successful otherwise False

Raises:

TypeError – if the value is not in the valid range

set_role(name, value=None, default=False, disable=False)

Configures the user role vale in EOS

Parameters:

set_sshkey(name, value=None, default=False, disable=False)

users_re = <_sre.SRE_Pattern object at 0x2249570>
pyeapi.api.users.instance(node)

Returns an instance of Users

This method will create and return an instance of the Users object passing the value of API to the object. The instance method is required for the resource to be autoloaded by the Node object

Parameters:node (Node) – The node argument passes an instance of Node to the resource
pyeapi.api.users.isprivilege(value)

Checks value for valid privilege level

Parameters:value (str, int) – Checks if value is a valid user privilege
Returns:True if the value is valid, otherwise False
