Looking for API info on adding "DHCP -> Shared Networks" and other Infoblox objects

GitHub - infobloxopen/infoblox-client: Infoblox NIOS Python WAPI Client or

Seem to be the only place I can find documentation I'm using these Infoblox objects. Any additional information would be appreciated. I would like to see some examples of what the parameters might look like for different objects.

 

Primarily using Python but some JavaScript React.

 

Thanks in advance.

The best way to create your own examples is to create something once in the GUI, and use WAPI to see what the JSON looks like.  Turn it into a REST call, modify the JSON payload appropriately, and send the JSON as a new call.

In general, POST is for creating new stuff and PUT is for modifying existing stuff using the _ref.

Create a shared network, using the _ref for each network to be added:

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X POST 'https://192.168.1.2/wapi/v2.11/sharednetwork' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d \
'{
	"name": "my_shared_network", 
	"network_view": "default", 
	"networks": [
		{
			"_ref": "network/ZG5zLm5ldHdvcmskMTkyLjE2OC4xLjAvMjQvMA:192.168.1.0/24/default"
		}, 
		{
			"_ref": "network/ZG5zLm5ldHdvcmskMTkyLjE2OC4yNTUuMC8yNC8w:192.168.255.0/24/default"
		}
	]
}'

returns the _ref of the shared network:

"sharednetwork/ZG5zLnNoYXJlZF9uZXR3b3JrJG15X3NoYXJlZF9uZXR3b3JrLjA:my_shared_network/default"                         


Define the DHCP options (lease tine & dns servers) on a shared network:

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X PUT 'https://192.168.1.2/wapi/v2.11/sharednetwork/ZG5zLnNoYXJlZF9uZXR3b3JrJG15X3NoYXJlZF9uZXR3b3JrLjA:my_shared_network/default' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d \
'{
	"options": [
		{
			"name": "dhcp-lease-time", 
			"num": 51, 
			"use_option": true, 
			"value": "259200", 
			"vendor_class": "DHCP"
        }, 
		{
			"name": "domain-name-servers", 
			"num": 6, 
			"use_option": true, 
			"value": "192.168.1.2,192.168.2.2", 
			"vendor_class": "DHCP"
		}
	]
}'

returns the _ref of the shared network again:

"sharednetwork/ZG5zLnNoYXJlZF9uZXR3b3JrJG15X3NoYXJlZF9uZXR3b3JrLjA:my_shared_network/default"

Thank you. This is helpful. I'm surprised there is not an infoblox-client built with JavaScript/Node.js.
