What’s Changed in Release 21.3R3

Junos XML API and Scripting

  • Changes to how command-line arguments are passed to Python action scripts (ACX Series, EX Series, MX Series, PTX Series, QFX Series, SRX Series, vMX, and vSRX)—When a custom YANG RPC invokes a Python action script and passes command-line arguments to the script, the device prefixes a hyphen (-) to single-character argument names, and it prefixes two hyphens (--) to multi-character argument names. The prefix enables you to use standard command-line parsing libraries to handle the arguments. In earlier releases, the device passes the unmodified argument names to the script.

  • Refreshing scripts from an HTTPS server requires a certificate (ACX Series, EX Series, MX Series, PTX Series, QFX Series, SRX Series, vMX, and vSRX)—When you refresh a local commit, event, op, SNMP, or Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET) script from an HTTPS server, you must specify the certificate (Root CA or self-signed) that the device uses to validate the server's certificate, thus ensuring that the server is authentic. In earlier releases, when you refresh scripts from an HTTPS server, the device does not perform certificate validation. When you refresh a script using the <codeph>request system scripts refresh-from</codeph> operational mode command, include the <codeph> cert-file </codeph> option and specify the certificate path. Before you refresh a script using the <codeph>set refresh</codeph> or <codeph>set refresh-from </codeph> configuration mode command, first configure the <codeph> cert-file </codeph> statement under the hierarchy level where you configure the script. The certificate must be in Privacy-Enhanced Mail (PEM) format.
