send_aci_action

The send_aci_action method sends a query to an ACI server. This method takes the action parameters as a table instead of the full action as a string, as with send_aci_command. This avoids issues with parameter values containing an ampersand (&).

Syntax

send_aci_action( host, port, action [, parameters] [, timeout] [, retries] [, sslParameters] )

Arguments

Argument Description
host (string) The ACI host to send the query to.
port (number) The port to send the query to.
action (string) The action to perform (for example, query).
parameters (table) A Lua table containing the action parameters, for example, { param1="value1", param2="value2" }
timeout (number) The number of milliseconds to wait before timing out. The default is 3000.
retries (number) The number of times to retry if the request fails. The default is 3.
sslParameters (table) A Lua table containing the SSL settings.

Returns

(String). Returns the XML response as a string. If required, you can call parse_xml on the string to return a LuaXmlDocument. If the request fails, it returns nil.

Example

send_aci_action( "localhost", 9000, "query" ,
			{text = "*", print = "all"} );
