Here’s a sample POST request that sets the downstream DNS mode to advanced. The DNS mode is specified in an XML file named network.xml. The request is made using a system-level user account that has the administrator role.

Request body in XML

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<networkSettings>
    <downstreamDNSMode>ADVANCED</downstreamDNSMode>
</networkSettings>

Request with cURL command line

curl -k -i -d @network.xml -H "Content-Type: application/xml"
    -H "Authorization: HCP YWRtaW4=:e00cf25ad42683b3df678c61f42c6bda"
    "https://admin.hcp.example.com:9090/mapi/network"

Request in Python using PycURL

import pycurl
import os
filehandle = open("network.xml", 'rb')
curl = pycurl.Curl()
curl.setopt(pycurl.HTTPHEADER, ["Content-Type: application/xml", / "Authorization: HCP YWRtaW4=:e00cf25ad42683b3df678c61f42c6bda"])
curl.setopt(pycurl.URL,
