apic.exe management of Remote Gateways

There is only the UI available to configure and update Remote Gateways.

If you have 100 Remote Gateways, and they all need a certificate updated, then you have to do them 1 by 1 in the UI.

I'd like to have apic.exe perform this type of configuration/update task.

Secondary would be to actually create the Remote Gateway via apic.exe, but primarily I think we should be able to script the certificate/config updates.

    Thank you for the additional details and screenshot. This was very help to scope the request to understand as we evaluate it for the future.

    The use case is such:

    I use APIC Reserved Instance, so I can only comment on that environment.

    When you are renewing the API Gateway Certificates and Management Certificate, currently you have to go into the UI on the CloudAdmin panel and open, configure, and save each Gateway to get the Gateway to accept the updated certificates.

    This would be better served by a command line, especially for larger environment and/or routine certificate updates.

    See screenshot for the window that I'm talking about.

    Thank you for providing feedback. Can you confirm if this is just the certificates for MTSL between the API Connect Subsystems (e.g. Gateway and Manager) or if the scope is large. If larger please some examples so we can evaluate the scope.

    Beyond the APIc Toolkit CLI (apic.exe or apicslim) - should there be some terraform support for this process?
