Description

The New-NetworkControllerCredential cmdlet adds a new device credential to the Network Controller. If the credential is already present, this cmdlet will modify the properties of the credential. Network Controller uses the device credential to connect to a southbound device for managing the device. This cmdlet adds or modifies credentials based on username and password, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based credentials and certificate-based credentials.

Examples

Example 1: Create a network credential

PS C:\> $cred=New-Object Microsoft.Windows.Networkcontroller.credentialproperties
$cred.type="usernamepassword"
$cred.username="admin"
$cred.value="abcd"

New-NetworkControllerCredential -ConnectionUri "https://restserver" -Properties $Cred -ResourceId "Cred1"

This command creates a credential object and uses New-NetworkControllerCredential to add it to the network controller.

To get the Properties, put the output of New-NetworkControllerCredential in a variable (for example, x) and execute x.properties in the Powershell prompt.

Required Parameters

-ConnectionUri

Specifies the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the Network Controller, used by all Representational State Transfer (REST) clients to connect to the Network Controller.

Type:Uri
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Properties

This contains details about the Credential resource, such as the type of credential (can be username and password, SNMP community string or certificate), the user name of the resource (only applicable if the type is username and password) and the value of the credential.

Type:CredentialProperties
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ResourceId

This is the ID of the credential that will be created or modified.

Type:String
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-CertificateThumbprint

Specifies the digital public key X.509 certificate of a user account that has permission to perform this action. This is the certificate thumbprint of the certificate. This thumbprint must also be provided in the ClientCertificateThumbprint parameter in the Install-NetworkController or Set-NetworkController cmdlet so that Network Controller can authorize this user.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies a user credential that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user. This user must be present in the security group provided in the ClientSecurityGroup parameter in the Install-NetworkController cmdlet or the Set-NetworkController cmdlet.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Etag

Specifies the entity tag (ETag) of the resource. An ETag is an HTTP response header returned by an HTTP-compliant web server. An ETag is used to determine change in the content of a resource at a given URL. The value of the header is an opaque string representing the state of the resource at the time the response was generated.

Type:String
Position:5
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:7
Default value:None

Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassInnerException

This thumbprint must also be provided in the ClientCertificateThumbprint parameter in the Install-NetworkController or Set-NetworkController cmdlet so that Network Controller can authorize this user.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ResourceMetadata

This parameter contains metadata information for the client, such as the tenant ID, group ID, and resource name.
