All, trying to send a command via the API to change the metric value of a static route, this is because occassionally my primary connection is extremely slow, but doesnt fail so path monitoring doesnt remove the primary static route. I'd like to be able to integrate this into some other home automation I have.
I feel like I'm close, but cant seem to get the correct syntax from debug CLI ouput, I've done it with SET commands easily enough.
The below returns an error:
My not working command:
https://FIREWALL/api?key=APIKEY&type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/devices/entry[@name='localhost.localdomain']/network/virtual-router/entry[@name='default']/routing-table/ip/static-route/entry[@name='Backup Default Route']/metric&element=<'entry name='200''/>
My Debug CLI output after successful SET command:
<request cmd="set" obj="/config/devices/entry[@name='localhost.localdomain']/network/virtual-router/entry[@name='default']/routing-table/ip/static-route/entry[@name='Backup Default Route']" cookie="7921424603090921"><metric>200</metric></request>
As a bonus, the commit command for the API would also be nice 🙂
Help would be appreciated.
