I need your suggestion in below mentioned situation:
If I am not wrong , my understanding is that Infoblox provides next available IP by starting with the lowest ip address in a subnet .
What if , i want infoblox to give me next available IP starting with highest ip address?? For example, in the below scenario:
If the device type is "C" and the selected subnet type begins with "V" and the selected subnet floor is not equal to "XX", we will look for the next free ip in the subnet starting by the highest ip address of the selected subnet??
Can I achieve this ? If yes, what kind of paraemeters can we provide in our API request for next available IP?

You are correct, it starts with the lowest number IP address and works up from there. That algorithm cannot be changed.

Can I still play with API to get IP from top of the subnet i.e from highest address?

Personally I would not. If you have a need for such a behavior, I suppose you could get the full list of free addresses, and then use your own algorithm to choose an address. However that would be quite inefficient.
