Severity: 3-Major


When SNMP trap destinations are configured, the user can specify the network that the traps are transmitted out from. By default, the routing table is consulted. Use the network keyword to overwrite this with either "management" or "other". There is also a "default" keyword, which was removed since it was confusing. However, this broke backward compatibility of the REST API; so, it was put back.


Existing scripts may encounter errors if they used this keyword.


Including the "network default" keywords in trap configuration reports an error with version 13.0.0 where the "default" keyword was removed.


Don't use the "default" keyword with the snmp trap destination network configuration.

Fix Information

The "default" keyword was put back.
