Invoke Infrastructure Command

Invokes an administrative command on the given Infrastructure Service instance.

For clusters that have one or more instances of the Infrastructure Service configured, this API provides a way to send infrastructure-specific commands to a particular instance of the Infrastructure Service.

Available commands and their corresponding response formats vary depending upon the infrastructure on which the cluster is running.

This API supports the Service Fabric platform; it is not meant to be used directly from your code.

Type: string
Required: Yes
Default: 6.0

The version of the API. This parameter is required and its value must be '6.0'.

Service Fabric REST API version is based on the runtime version in which the API was introduced or was changed. Service Fabric runtime supports more than one version of the API. This is the latest supported version of the API. If a lower API version is passed, the returned response may be different from the one documented in this specification.

Additionally the runtime accept any version that is higher than the latest supported version up to the current version of the runtime. So if the latest API version is 6.0, but if the runtime is 6.1, in order to make it easier to write the clients, the runtime will accept version 6.1 for that API. However the behavior of the API will be as per the documented 6.0 version.
