I'd like to get a list of devices connected to each switch in Infoblox. Our Infoblox has discovery devices available in the grid and discovers networks devices. I have read the NGIOS API documentation (https://www.infoblox.com/wp-content/uploads/infoblox-deployment-infoblox-rest-api.pdf) but didn't find how to do it. Could someone help? Many thanks

Try the discovery:deviceneighbor object, and include the reference to the device for which you want to get the connected devices.  These are what's displayed in the "Assets" tab in the GUI, for that device.

 

I did this:

 

https://192.168.1.2/wapi/v2.9/discovery:deviceneighbor?device=discovery:device/Li5kZXZpY2UkODI2MjY4NzYzNDUxORI1NDM0LzEwLjkuETYuMjcvMC9jaXNjby5yaWNoY7JkLm5ldHdvcms:switch.example.org/default&_return_fields=address,interface,mac,name,vlan_infos

 

and got a long list of results like this.:

 

 

{
	"_ref": "discovery:deviceneighbor/Li5uZWlnaGJvcl9kZXZpY2UkNzQwODk:pdu.example.org",
	"address": "192.168.1.23",
	"interface": {
		"_ref": "discovery:deviceinterface/Li5pbnRlcmZhY2UkNzk4NTkyMTQ4NzQ2MDg3NDA0NQ:Fa0%2F10"
	},
	"mac": "00:C0:B7:4F:12:34",
	"name": "pdu.example.org",
	"vlan_infos": [
		{
			"id": 1,
			"name": "default"
		}
	]
}
