Hi,

 

I was wandering if anyone can help me use the infoblox API to update the name attribute for a fixed IP adress. 

I know that its possible to update record fo type host, but is there capability in the API to update that name attribute if the record wasnt of type host?

Yes, it is possible to update the 'name' field of the Fixed Address. But beware that 'name' is not the same as a hostname in DNS, it is just a name of the object and it has no impact to DNS resolution. Below I show 3 steps:

 

1. Lookup the fixed address 172.16.4.4, to retrieve the object reference (_ref).

 

$ curl -k -u admin:infoblox -X GET 'https://192.168.2.51/wapi/v2.10.5/fixedaddress?ipv4addr=172.16.4.4'
[
    {
        "_ref": "fixedaddress/ZG5zLmZpeGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTcyLjE2LjQuNC4wLi4:172.16.4.4/default", 
        "ipv4addr": "172.16.4.4", 
        "network_view": "default"
    }
]

 

2. Use the object reference to perform an update, changing 'name' to "NameTwo".

 

$ curl -k -u admin:infoblox -H 'Content-Type:application/json' \
-X PUT
'https://192.168.2.51/wapi/v2.10.5/fieGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTcyLjE2LjQuNC4wLi4:172.16.4.4/default' \ 
--data '{"name":"NameTwo"}'

 

 

3. Lookup the fixed address 172.16.4.4 again with _ref to verify the 'name' field has changed. 

 

$ curl -k -u admin:infoblox -X GET 'https://192.168.2.51/wapi/v2.10.5/fixedaddress?ipv4addr=172.16.4.4&_return_fields%2B=name'
[
    {
        "_ref": "fixedaddress/ZG5zLmZpeGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTcyLjE2LjQuNC4wLi4:172.16.4.4/default", 
        "ipv4addr": "172.16.4.4", 
        "name": "NameTwo", 
        "network_view": "default"
    }
]
