WAPI: Add new IP for existing host

Posts: 2
589     0

I've tried to add a new IP for an existing host via a python script and the WAPI.

 

To crate a new host is not a problem and this works fines.

url = f"https://{self.config['Infoblox']['host']}{self.config['Infoblox']['url']}record:host?_return_fields={return_fields}"
data = {
    "name": hostname,
    "configure_for_dns": False,
    "network_view": self.config['Infoblox']['network_view'],
    'ipv4addrs': [
        {
            'configure_for_dhcp': False,
            'ipv4addr': f"func:nextavailableip:{subnet},{self.config['Infoblox']['network_view']}"
        }
    ]
}

Then use requests and post the data to the infoblox server.

 

But when i try the same for an existing host i've always get the error 

{'Error': 'AdmConProtoError: IP address for the Host record is missing.', 'code': 'Client.Ibap.Proto', 'text': 'IP address for the Host record is missing.'}

 

The code looks bit different

url = f"https://{self.config['Infoblox']['host']}{self.config['Infoblox']['url']}{hostname_ref}{self.config['Infoblox']['network_view']}?_return_fields={return_fields}"
data = {
    "name": hostname_ref,
    "configure_for_dns": False,
    "network_view": self.config['Infoblox']['network_view'],
    'ipv4addrs+': [
        {
            'configure_for_dhcp': False,
            'ipv4addr': f"func:nextavailableip:{subnet},{self.config['Infoblox']['network_view']}"
        }
    ]
}

The URL called to add an IP address is
https://<srv>/wapi/v2.12/record:host/ZG5zLmhvc3QkLm5vbl9ETlNfaG9zdF9yb290My4wLjE2NTI3OTE1MTQzMzUudGVzdDI:test2/Testing?_return_fields=ipv4addrs

It doesn't work even if i try it with a fixed address.

 

I also tried to get all the existing IPs for an host and pass it so it should overwrite the existing IPs for that host. But the WAPI always created a new host object and doens't alter the existing one.

 

I don't see my error, has someone an idea what's the problem?

I've figured it out. Cost some time but the Problem was that both calls are transported as the HTML method "POST" but to alter a host record it has to be "PUT".
