Clustering

  • Last updated on

If you want to cluster two or more Barracuda Web Application Firewalls, the following three API’s should be executed.

  1. Add Shared Secret to the First Unit/Node
  2. Retrieve Cluster Details from the First Unit/Node
  3. Add the Second Unit/Node to the First Unit/Node

To Add Shared Secret to the First Node

URL:  /v1/system
Method: POST
Description: Adds shared secret to the first node.
Parameter NameData TypeMandatoryDescription
Input Parameters:   
cluster_shared_secretAlphanumericYesPasscode to prevent unauthorized systems from accessing cluster information. All Barracuda Web Application Firewalls in a cluster must have the same shared secret.
Example:

Request:

curl http://192.168.0.1:8000/restapi/v1/system -u 'eyJldCI6IjEzNzk0OTUxOTgiLCJwYXNzd29yZCI6ImZiODljYjIyOWE5MzcyNTBiNTRkZDNmOTg3\nYmIwMzBkIiwidXNlciI6ImFkbWluIn0=\n:' -X POST -H Content-Type:application/json -d '{"cluster_shared_secret":"12345"}'

 

Response:
