API to Reserve/Assign VLAN ID

Hi community,


We are using func:nextavailablevlanid to retrieve next available VLAN ID. 


Upon receiving the VLAN ID, we would like to set the VLAN ID status to either Assigned / Reserved. May I know what would the command be for such use case? 



Thank you.

You can create a VLAN entry on the next available VLAN as follows:

curl -k -u admin:infoblox -H 'content-type: application/json' -X POST "https://grid-master/wapi/v2.11/vlan?_return_fields%2B=id,name&_return_as_object=1" -d '{"id":"func:nextavailablevlanid:vlanview/ZG5zLnZsYW5fdmlldyR0ZXN0LjEwLjIw:test/10/20","name": "next-vlan","parent": "vlanview/ZG5zLnZsYW5fdmlldyR0ZXN0LjEwLjIw:test/10/20","reserved":true,"contact":"879220","department":"ng"}'

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Krishna,


Thanks a lot for your helpful post. However, we are in a situation where we created the VLAN ranges via API calls. Is it possible to reserve in the process of VLAN range creation e.g. 1st 2 VLANs as reserved?
