Trying to set autoremove to yes on robot in Nimbus with Nimbus API and C#

I have tried something like this - using C# and the Nimbus APU fro, NimbusAPI.dll:

NimbusSession contSession = new NimbusSession("localhost", (int)NimbusPort.Controller);
contSession.Login("user", "password", true);
ControllerConfig conTest = new ControllerConfig("controller", contSession);
conTest.SetValue("controller", "autoremove", "yes");
conTest.Save();

Open in new window


But here I am not able to choose what robot to do the changes for. The first argument on method SetValue is "Section," where do I find this?

How am I able to set the raw configuration "autoremove" to "yes" on a robots control probe?

This is how you do it using a console application:

   class Program {
      //The following is implemented in case this code is compiled as a console application:
      static void Main(string[] args) {
         if (args.Length < 1) {
            Console.WriteLine("First argument needs to be the IP address or name of the Nimbus robot you want to remove at shutdown of robot.");
            System.Environment.Exit(0);
         }
         Console.WriteLine("Write in username to authenticate with Nimbus:");
         String username = Console.ReadLine();
         Console.WriteLine("Write in password to authenticate with Nimbus:");
         String password = Console.ReadLine();

         Console.WriteLine("Removing robot named: " + args[0]);
         try {
            NimbusSession contSession = new NimbusSession(args[0], (int)NimbusPort.Controller);
            contSession.Login(username, password, true);         
            ControllerConfig conConfig = new ControllerConfig("controller", contSession);
            conConfig.SetValue("controller", "autoremove", "yes");
            conConfig.Save();
         } catch (Exception e) {
             Console.WriteLine(e.ToString());
         }
         Console.WriteLine("\nExecution done! Press a button to continue.");
         Console.ReadLine();
      }
    }
}
