Disabling Wire-Level Security for a Volume Using the CLI and REST API

You can disable encryption of data on wire at the volume level.

Set the value for the wiresecurityenabled parameter to false when you:
  • Create the volume. For example:
    maprcli volume create -name <volName> -path <volMountPath> -wiresecurityenabled false
  • Modify the volume. For example:
    maprcli volume modify -name <volName> -wiresecurityenabled false
Send a request of type POST and set the value for the wiresecurityenabled parameter to false when you:
  • Create the volume. For example:
    curl -k -X POST 'https://abc.sj.us:8443/rest/volume/create?name=<volName>&path=<volMountPath>&wiresecurityenabled=false' --user mapr:mapr
  • Modify the volume. For example:
    curl -k -X POST 'https://abc.sj.us:8443/rest/volume/modify?name=<volName>&wiresecurityenabled=false' --user mapr:mapr
