Debugging can be enabled by setting the following environment variable prior to using the SDK.
Ignore HTTPS warnings¶
To ignore HTTPS warnings while the SDK is making HTTP requests, set the following environment variable prior to using the SDK.
This is not recommended for production use, please configure the BIG-IP with a valid certificate.
Alternate Management Port¶
To connect to a BIG-IP using a non-default management port, such as 8443, it should be provided during management client instantiation.
device = ManagementClient('192.0.2.10', user='admin', password='admin', port=8443)
The BIG-IP management client will attempt to discover the management port using the order 443 > 8443 > 443 (fallback). However this may result in an unwanted delay for BIG-IPs using 8443 as a management port.
