Is it possible to change the 'mac' property on an existing fixedaddress object through the WAPI?

Yes. This can be acomplished by first requesting the reference for the fixed-address and then sending an API call to update the fixed-address.


Example of using WAPI to request (GET) the _ref for a specific fixed address IP address:


curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X GET ''
        "_ref": "fixedaddress/ZG5zLmZpeGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTAuNjEuMy4yMjIuMC4u:", 
        "ipv4addr": "", 
        "network_view": "default"

Example of updating (PUT) the MAC address:


curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X PUT  '' -d '{"mac": "03:03:33:33:33:38"}'

I'm sorry, I should have been more clear on what I was trying to do. I'm actually trying to change the Mac Address on a IPv4 Reservation. I assumed that the Reservation object was a fixed address object because I created it through the REST api by creating a fixedaddress with a Mac address of all 0's (00:00:00:...). Maybe these are actually different objects?
