Updating the Secure Shell Password field in CUCM using AXL updatePhone

Hi - I'm trying to 'blank' out both the  'sshUserId' and 'sshPwd' fields using the updatePhone method but this only works on the former (sshUserId) and not with sshPwd.
Using Python 3.7.x - here's my snippet: 

resp = service.updatePhone(name = 'SEP12345678901112', sshUserId='', sshPwd='')

Can anyone confirm if this should work? Much appreciated!

I also can't seem to clear the sshpassword field via <updatePhone> - this would likely be a defect.

I think I was successfully able to use <executeSqlUpdate> as a workaround, hope it helps:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:ns="http://www.cisco.com/AXL/API/14.0">
   <soapenv:Header/>
   <soapenv:Body>
      <ns:executeSQLUpdate sequence="1">
         <sql>UPDATE device SET (sshuserid, sshpassword) = ("", "") WHERE name="SEP886100000000"</sql>
      </ns:executeSQLUpdate>
   </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

Note, it wouldn't let me set the fields to NULL, but it seems an empty string is acceptable.

For a database an empty string is not logically equivalent to a no/Null value.
Can you try setting the sshUserId/sshPwd keys to 'xsd.Nil' (you'll first need to import zeep.xsd?)

This sample demonstrates the usage: https://github.com/CiscoDevNet/axl-python-zeep-samples/blob/master/axl_list_Sip_Trunk.py

Hi David - thanks for your response. after importing  zeep.xsd, I attempted the following:

resp1 = service.updatePhone(name='SEP12345678901112', sshUserId=xsd.Nil, sshPwd=xsd.Nil)


But this failed to update the fields correctly. Is there a step that I'm missing?

FYI this defect has been opened for tracking: CSCwb05685 - Unable to clear Secure Shell Password using <updatePhone>

Hi David, SQLUpdate method works and I can used that as a workaround - thank you. I appreciate you opening the defect!
