Please check my xpath for me

Hi I'm creating a new admin role via api but it is not working. Here is my complete request:

 

 

https://192.168.10.1/api/?type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/shared/admin-role/entry[@name='test_name']/role/device/xmlapi<config>enable</config>&key=mykeyhere
 

 

 

 

The error I get is:

<response status="error" code="13">
<msg>
<line>
Could not find schema node for xpath /config/shared/admin-role/entry[@name='test_name']/role/device/xmlapi
<config>enable</config>
</line>
</msg>
</response>
 
 
It looks like it is looking for that name in the configs rather than creating it for me.
Spent enough time going through all the available methods of getting the xpath(https://ip/debug or debug cli on) but still getting an error.
Any help is appreciated.

Re: Please check my xpath for me

You have too much of your configuration in the xpath - since much of that configuartion does nto exist until you create your role.

I think your xpath should be /config/shared/admin-role and all the details of your role should be in the element XML.

 

SET type of config commands are very similar to EDIT, hopefully the documentation for those will help
