REST API call for query_fqdn_on_member

In the Perl API you can use query_fqdn_on_member, but I can't seem to locate this functionality on REST API.


Does anyone know if it is there or an RFE request for it to be added?

The function call is available with the grid object in WAPIs. You can invoke it as shown below.


curl -k -u admin:infoblox -H 'content-type: application/json' -X POST "https://grid-master/wapi/v2.7/grid/b25lLmNsdXN0ZXIkMA:Infoblox?_function=query_fqdn_on_member" -d '{"fqdn" : "","member": ""}'

Sample output:
    "dig_started": 1541748509,
    "result": "NOERROR",
    "result_text": "\n; <<>> DiG 9.10.2-ECS-M3 <<>> @localhost ANY -b \n; (2 servers found)\n;; global options: +cmd\n;; Got answer:\n;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 28541\n;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1\n;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available\n\n;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION:\n; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 4096\n;; QUESTION SECTION:\n;\t\t\tIN\tANY\n\n;; ANSWER SECTION:\\t\t28800\tIN\tSOA\ please_set_email.absolutely.nowhere. 19 10800 3600 2419200 900\\t\t28800\tIN\tNS\\n\n;; Query time: 0 msec\n;; SERVER:\n;; WHEN: Fri Nov 09 12:58:29 IST 2018\n;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 132\n\n",
    "source_address": ""

Here are more details on the function call:

Question: I want to use this function to lookup records on DNS servers outside my org - I'm especially interested in SOA-records. The GUI allows me to overrule the list of record types, and type in "SOA" and click "Perform dig". But in the API an error is returned:


"Error": "AdmConProtoError: Invalid value for record_type (\"SOA\") valid values are: ANY, A, AAAA, CNAME, DNAME, MX, NAPTR, NS, PTR, SRV, TXT, AXFR"
To be honest this is highly frustrating, since the GUI allows it ;-) (and the arguments are just handed off to `dig` that does support the SOA)
Any suggestions?
