ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

security session limit create

Create default session limit

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.


This command allows creation of a default management session limit that does not yet exist. The default limits can be overridden for specific values within each category by using advanced privilege level commands.


-interface {cli|ontapi|rest} - Interface

The interface (CLI, ONTAPI, or REST) to which the limit applies.

-category {application|location|request|user|vserver} - Category

The session type for this default limit. The following categories are supported: application, location, request, user, Vserver.

-max-active-limit <integer> - Max-Active Limit

The maximum number of concurrent sessions allowed for this interface and category.


The following example illustrates creating a default limit for management sessions using the same application.

cluster1::> security session limit create -interface ontapi -category application -max-active-limit 8
