Just wondering if someone can please help me to create a A record in aparticular Zone and then Apply a specific EA to it.

 

At the moment i am just trying to do a Post:

wapi/v2.7/record:a -d '{"ipv4addr":"10.2.0.1","name":"xyz.com"}'/default

 

And i keep getting this Error;

 

"code": "Client.Ibap.Proto",
"text": "Unknown object type (record:a -d '{\"ipv4addr\":\"10.2.0.1\",\"name\":\"xyz.com\"}')"

me\":\"xyz.com\"}')"

Here is an example using curl, to create a record with an EA value.  Note: the zone, and the EA defninition, must already exist.

 

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X POST 'https://192.168.1.2/wapi/v2.7/record:a' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d \
'{
  "ipv4addr":"10.2.0.1",
  "name":"host1.xyz.com",
  "view": "default",
  "extattrs":{"Organization":{"value":"Engineering"}}
}'

This curl works---I would love to know if we can add the getnextavailableIP function works. I keep getting errors on this curl:

curl -k -u xxxx:xxxx -X POST https://iblox.mkcorp.com/wapi/v2.2/record:a?_return_fields=ipv4addrs \

-H Content-Type:application/json \

-d '{
         "ipv4addrs": [{
         "ipv4addr": "func:nextavailableip:10.4.5.0/24",
         "configure_for_dhcp": false
         }],
     "name": "wapitest.mkcop.com",
     "configure_for_dns": true,
     "view": "default"
     }'

 

I get this error: Unknown argument/field: 'ipv4addrs'

--Tried every other possible scenario that I know of with errors...

 

I don't know if it's possible, but would also like to chain the create record:host and create record:a calls together...

Hi,

 

You need to change your request to look like below.

curl -k -u xxxx:xxxx -X POST https://iblox.mkcorp.com/wapi/v2.2/record:a?_return_fields=ipv4addrs \

-H Content-Type:application/json \

-d '{
     "ipv4addr": "func:nextavailableip:10.4.5.0/24",
     "name": "wapitest.mkcop.com",
     "view": "default"
     }'
