I want to deploy configurations (virtual server, pools) to my bigip server, based on the files which have same format as /config/bigip.conf.
However, the iControl 'create' API for virtual server and pool only accept string values rather than the whole file, so that I have to parse values from the configuration file, then call the API, which is not straightforward and hard to maintain.
I want to find an iControl API which is equivalent to 'b merge', so that I can load configurations into the system incrementally based on the .conf file.
I don't want to transfer the file to bigip server and do 'b merge' directly for permission issue. Does anyone know if we can do this?
