How do I enable configure commands via HTTP API?

I'm working with a 7050s which has the http interface enabled and I am able to post non-privileged show commands and receive successful json output (e.g. show interfaces).  However, when I attempt to execute a command that requires configuration mode the command fails with the error message: ' 'configure' failed: invalid command.'   Executing 'show privilege' from the client indicates that the privilege level is 1, and so I assumed that by assigning the default privilege of 15 to the user that the configure command would be successful.  After adding a user: username newuser privilege 15 secret 0 ######  role...

How do you enable ports on the switch?

I started configuring an Arista 7150 switch:  I created two VLANs (VLAN 10 and VLAN 20) and assigned the front panel ports to the two VLANs (ports 1-12 assigned  to VLAN 10, ports 13-24 assigned to VLAN 20).  The VLANs are active, but none of the ports seem to be enabled (even though when I run the command to see the configured ports for each VLAN, all if the ports show up in the output). I attempted to run ‘no shutdown’ for each port in order to enable the interfaces, with no luck (although I was able to confirm that...
