how to specify network_view in object body requests?

I'm trying to get data from WAPI using object body requests, but fail to specify network view

 

Examples using object body requests — Infoblox WAPI 2.11.2 documentation (illinois.edu)

https://my_ip/wapi/v2.11.2/request

 

I tried putting network_view in to data part or args part, but no luck, it either gives error argument not supported or 

 

[
    {
        "method""GET",
        "object""extensibleattributedef",
        "data": {
            "name~""ea_",
            "network_view""testing"
        },
        "args": {
            "_return_fields""name",
            "_return_as_object"1
        }
    }
]
 
errors
 
{
    "Error""AdmConProtoError: Unknown argument/field: 'network_view'",
    "code""Client.Ibap.Proto",
    "text""Unknown argument/field: 'network_view'"
}
 
or 
 
{
    "Error""AdmConProtoError: The following argument(s) are unknown or not supported for multiple object body requests: set([u'network_view'])",
    "code""Client.Ibap.Proto",
    "text""The following argument(s) are unknown or not supported for multiple object body requests: set([u'network_view'])"
}

The object type extensibleattributedef does not have a network view attribute. EAs are not specific to a network view.

 

For objects that do fall under specific network views, adding the argument under data is correct. For example, this would be used to find an IP in a network in the mycorp network view:

[
  {
    "method": "GET",
    "object": "network",
    "data": 
    {
      "network_view": "mycorp",
      "*Site": "HQ",
      "*Building": "Two"
    },
    "assign_state": 
    {
      "netw_ref": "_ref"
    },
    "discard": true
  },
  {
    "method": "POST",
    "object": "##STATE:netw_ref:##",
    "args": 
    {
      "_function": "next_available_ip"
    },
    "enable_substitution": true
  }
]
