Bases: object

Implementation of the ‘ActiveDirectoryPrincipalsAddParameters’ model.

Specifies the settings for adding new users and groups for Active Directory principals. These users and groups are added to the Cohesity Cluster. You cannot create users and groups in the default Cohesity domain called ‘LOCAL’ using this operation.

description (string): Specifies a description about the user or


domain (string): Specifies the domain of the Active Directory where

the referenced principal is stored.

object_class (ObjectClassActiveDirectoryPrincipalsAddParametersEnum):

Specifies the type of the referenced Active Directory principal. If ‘kGroup’, the referenced Active Directory principal is a group. If ‘kUser’, the referenced Active Directory principal is a user. ‘kUser’ specifies a user object class. ‘kGroup’ specifies a group object class. ‘kComputer’ specifies a computer object class. ‘kWellKnownPrincipal’ specifies a well known principal.

principal_name (string): Specifies the name of the Active Directory

principal, that will be referenced by the group or user. The name of the Active Directory principal is used for naming the new group or user on the Cohesity Cluster.

restricted (bool): Whether the principal is a restricted principal. A

restricted principal can only view the objects he has permissions to.

roles (list of string): Array of Roles. Specifies the Cohesity roles

to associate with this user or group such as ‘Admin’, ‘Ops’ or ‘View’. The Cohesity roles determine privileges on the Cohesity Cluster for this group or user. For example if the ‘joe’ user is added for the Active Directory ‘joe’ user principal and is associated with the Cohesity ‘View’ role, ‘joe’ can log in to the Cohesity Dashboard and has a read-only view of the data on the Cohesity Cluster.

classmethod from_dictionary(dictionary)[source]

Creates an instance of this model from a dictionary


dictionary (dictionary): A dictionary representation of the object as obtained from the deserialization of the server’s response. The keys MUST match property names in the API description.


object: An instance of this structure class.
