When I have a network (say, 220.127.116.11/28) defined, I can search for all the IPaddresses in the network using this syntax.
https://host/wapi/v2.9/ipv4address?network=18.104.22.168/28 The ipv4address object has a field called types which is a list.
I can narrow my list by specifying my types to a specific type, ex. BULKHOST, PTR, NETWORK, etc.
Even though all the IPs in this network , have a type value, I *can* query by types=BULKHOST or types=NETWORK, BUT, searching by BROADCAST returns an empty object. Why?
https://host/wapi/v2.9/ipv4address?network=22.214.171.124/28&types=NETWORK <-- works, gives me the first IP of the network
https://host/wapi/v2.9/ipv4address?network=126.96.36.199/28&types=BULKHOST <-- works, gives me all the IPs for the range that the BulkHost has been defined.
https://host/wapi/v2.9/ipv4address?network=188.8.131.52/28&types=BROADCAST <-- does NOT work. This returns an empty object, even though the very last IP in this range (184.108.40.206) has the value of BROADCAST in the types field.
Am I doing something wrong? Can someone tell me how to circumvent this and get the Broadcast address? Since this is already stored Infoblox, I just want to retrieve it without doing IP math to figure out what the Broadcast IP address is.
FYI: I know that the values for types is casesensitive and the values have to be exact if I am not using the ":" operator.
