axAPIv3 TPS DDoS Dst Entry tutorial?

Hi all,

I'm working with axAPIv3 and PowerShell. I just recently wrote some functions to invoke API calls and I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around creating a 'ddos dst entry' and/or 'ddos dst zone' configuration. In the axAPIv3 Documentation for 'ddos dst entry', it provides a schema which has a ton of information, but when I perform a GET call on an existing entry, it's completely different. For example, let's take the CLI route:
show run ddos dst entry TEST_1.2.3.4
!Section configuration: 245 bytes       
!
ddos dst entry TEST_1.2.3.4 1.2.3.4 
  description TEST.domain.com 
  log-enable 
  l4-type tcp 
    glid 100 
    syn-auth disable 
  l4-type udp 
    glid 100 
    drop-frag-pkt 
  port 443 ssl-l4 
    glid 10 
  port 1001 udp 
    glid 10 
!


When I do a GET on '/axapi/v3/ddos/dst/entry/TEST_1.2.3.4' it looks nothing like ddos-dst-entry.txt from the docs schema file:

  "entry": {
    "dst-entry-name":"TEST_1.2.3.4",

        "a10-url":"/axapi/v3/ddos/dst/entry/TEST_1.2.3.4/port/1001+udp"
      }
    ],
    "a10-url":"/axapi/v3/ddos/dst/entry/TEST_1.2.3.4"
  }
}


So, I'm hoping someone could walk me through how to form the appropriate JSON object for creating, updating, and validating an entry. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Is there a better reference document for axAPI and TPS devices?
What would be the bare minimum I would need to include in the JSON object given my CLI example above?

    Hello,
    You may want to try "show json-config" command on the CLI to confirm the JSON format.

    A10-TPS.113#sh json-config?
    json-config Displays config in json format
    json-config-detail Displays config in json format with details
    json-config-with-default Displays config in json format with default values

    The "show json-config ddos dst entry TEST_1.2.3.4" will give you the confg in JSON format like you see in scheme file .
    Hope this helps.
