Unable to get PTR records
09-07-2020 03:32 AM
I've noticed a strange behavior of REST API.
I have 0.0.14.in-addr.arpa auth zone, when I asked for all auth zone
I got <fqdn>126.96.36.199/24</fqdn>.
Then, I asked for all ptr records using just returned FQDN:
but I got an empty list.
But, when I asked for all records with <fqdn>188.8.131.52/24</fqdn> the API is able to find my records inside the zone:
Also, when I ask for PTR records with zone name '0.0.14.in-addr.arpa' I am able to get my records. However, this is not my case, I would like to use API to get information about PTR records without manually changing the zone name.
Is it a bug?
My API version: 2.7.3, NIOS: 8.2.9-383779

It's a quirky behavior, for sure. You need to specify the zone in CIDR format here, and in some other places too.

Thank you for your answer, but unfortunately, I cannot rename the reverse mapping zone in the Infoblox DNS dashboard.
I rely only on data returned by zone_auth API request, so I would like to make sure if API request for record: ptr expecting a different name than returned by zone_auth is a bug or not?
In my opinion, it is a bug because I cannot get another zone name when asking for all zones. Could you please confirm that?
