Is it possible to get the CIDR for subnets for a given network by using the Infoblox API?

Similar to what this tool is doing:

Basically, what the tool does is to divide IP addresses or CIDR notation into subnets.

My question is: does the infoblox API provides this feature.

Thanks in advance,

While the API does not have an embedded calculator it is easy to manipulate address space under the network object through the the functions that are available:


  • next_available_network
  • expand_network
  • resize
  • split_network


In most scenarios the language of your choice should provide you with a library to help with subnetting like netaddr for python.

How to use above network object function in powershell through API? Is the same as next_available_network functionality?
