Reproduce nslookup or dig with API queries

I would like to create a web based site that will return the same results produced by either nslookup or dig.  You can find many public tools to do this and they all work against public DNS servers.  I would like something similar except that it will query our internal DNS.  We would use the tool when we are connected internally.

 

Can I reproduce the results from nslookup or dig by calling API queries?  Any advice for me? thanks.

Yes!  All API calls will go to the Grid Manager, and the GM will send the query task out to the specified appliance.  Here's a curl example, to send a query to two different appliances simultaneously, to compare the answers.

 

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X POST 'https://192.168.1.2/wapi/v2.12/request' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d \
'[{
  "method":"POST",
  "object":"grid",
  "args":{"_function":"query_fqdn_on_member"},
  "data":{
    "name_server":"8.8.8.8",
    "fqdn":"infoblox.com",
    "record_type":"A",
    "member":"gm.blox.corp"
  }
},
{
  "method":"POST",
  "object":"grid",
  "args":{"_function":"query_fqdn_on_member"},
  "data":{
    "name_server":"8.8.8.8",
    "fqdn":"infoblox.com",
    "record_type":"A",
    "member":"gmc.blox.corp"
  }
}]'
