Client for interacting with Infoblox NIOS over WAPI.

* Free software: Apache license
* Documentation: https://infoblox-client.readthedocs.org.

Installation
------------

Install infoblox-client using pip:

::

pip install infoblox-client

Usage
-----

Configure logger prior to loading infoblox_client to get all debug messages in console:

.. code:: python

import logging
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG)

Low level API, using connector module
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Retrieve list of network views from NIOS:

.. code:: python

from infoblox_client import connector

opts = {'host': '192.168.1.10', 'username': 'admin', 'password': 'admin'}
conn = connector.Connector(opts)
# get all network_views
network_views = conn.get_object('networkview')
# search network by cidr in specific network view
network = conn.get_object('network', {'network': '100.0.0.0/8', 'network_view': 'default'})


For these request data is returned as list of dicts:

.. code:: python

network_views:
[{u'_ref': u'networkview/ZG5zLm5ldHdvcmtfdmlldyQw:default/true',
u'is_default': True,
u'name': u'default'}]

network:
[{u'_ref': u'network/ZG5zLm5ldHdvcmskMTAwLjAuMC4wLzgvMA:100.0.0.0/8/default',
u'network': u'100.0.0.0/8',
u'network_view': u'default'}]

High level API, using objects
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Example of creating Network View, Network, DNS View, DNSZone and HostRecord using NIOS objects:

.. code:: python

from infoblox_client import connector
from infoblox_client import objects

opts = {'host': '192.168.1.10', 'username': 'admin', 'password': 'admin'}
conn = connector.Connector(opts)

Create a network view, and network:

.. code:: python

nview = objects.NetworkView.create(conn, name='my_view')
network = objects.Network.create(conn, network_view='my_view', cidr='192.168.1.0/24')

Create a DNS view and zone:

.. code:: python

view = objects.DNSView.create(conn, network_view='my_view', name='my_dns_view')
zone = objects.DNSZone.create(conn, view='my_dns_view', fqdn='my_zone.com')

Create a host record:

.. code:: python

my_ip = objects.IP.create(ip='192.168.1.25', mac='aa:bb:cc:11:22:33')
hr = objects.HostRecord.create(conn, view='my_dns_view',
name='my_host_record.my_zone.com', ip=my_ip)

Create host record with Extensible Attributes (EA):

.. code:: python

ea = objects.EA({'Tenant ID': tenantid, 'CMP Type': cmptype,
'Cloud API Owned': True})
host = objects.HostRecord.create(conn, name='new_host', ip=my_ip, extattrs=ea)

Set the TTL to 30 minutes:

.. code:: python

hr = objects.HostRecord.create(conn, view='my_dns_view',
name='my_host_record.my_zone.com', ip=my_ip,
ttl = 1800)

Create a new host record, from the next available IP in a CIDR, with a MAC address, and DHCP enabled:

.. code:: python

next = objects.IPAllocation.next_available_ip_from_cidr('default', '10.0.0.0/24')
my_ip = objects.IP.create(ip=next, mac='aa:bb:cc:11:22:33', configure_for_dhcp=True)
host = objects.HostRecord.create(conn, name='some.valid.fqdn', view='Internal', ip=my_ip)

Reply from NIOS is parsed back into objects and contains next data:

.. code:: python

In [22]: hr
Out[22]: HostRecordV4: _ref=record:host/ZG5zLmhvc3QkLjQuY29tLm15X3pvbmUubXlfaG9zdF9yZWNvcmQ:my_host_record.my_zone.com/my_dns_view, name=my_host_record.my_zone.com, ipv4addrs=[<infoblox_client.objects.IPv4 object at 0x7f7d6b0fe9d0>], view=my_dns_view

High level API, using InfobloxObjectManager
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Create a new fixed address, selecting it from the next available IP in a CIDR:

.. code:: python

from infoblox_client.object_manager import InfobloxObjectManager

new_address = InfobloxObjectManager(conn).create_fixed_address_from_cidr(netview='default', mac='aa:bb:cc:11:22:33', cidr='10.0.0.0/24', extattrs=[])

What you get back is a ``FixedAddressV4`` object.

Objects Interface
-----------------

All top level objects support interface for CRUD operations. List of supported objects is defined in next section.

- ``create(cls, connector, check_if_exists=True, update_if_exists=False, **kwargs)``
Creates object on NIOS side.
Requires connector passed as the first argument, ``check_if_exists`` and ``update_if_exists`` are optional.
Object related fields are passed in as kwargs: ``field=value``, ``field2=value2``.

- ``search(cls, connector, return_fields=None, search_extattrs=None, force_proxy=False, **kwargs)``
Search single object on NIOS side, returns first object that match search criteria.
Requires connector passed as the first argument.
``return_fields`` can be set to retrieve particular fields from NIOS,
for example ``return_fields=['view', 'name']``.
If ``return_fields`` is ``[]`` default ``return_fields`` are returned by NIOS side for current ``wapi_version``.
``search_extattrs`` is used to filter out results by extensible attributes.
``force_proxy`` forces search request to be processed on Grid Master (applies only in cloud environment)

- ``search_all(cls, connector, return_fields=None, search_extattrs=None, force_proxy=False, **kwargs)``
Search all objects on NIOS side that match search criteria. Returns a list of objects.
All other options are equal to ``search()``.

- ``update(self)``
Update the object on NIOS side by pushing changes done in the local object.

- ``delete(self)``
Deletes the object from NIOS side.

Supported NIOS objects
----------------------

* ``NetworkView`` for 'networkview'
* ``DNSView`` for 'view'
* ``DNSZone`` for 'zone_auth'
* ``Member`` for 'member'
* ``Network`` (V4 and V6)

* ``NetworkV4`` for 'network'
* ``NetworkV6`` for 'ipv6network'

* ``IPRange`` (V4 and V6)

* ``IPRangeV4`` for 'range'
* ``IPRangeV6`` for 'ipv6range'

* ``HostRecord`` (V4 and V6)

* ``HostRecordV4`` for 'record:host'
* ``HostRecordV6`` for 'record:host'

* ``FixedAddress`` (V4 and V6)

* ``FixedAddressV4`` for 'fixedaddress'
* ``FixedAddressV6`` for 'ipv6fixedaddress'

* ``IPAddress`` (V4 and V6)

* ``IPv4Address`` for 'ipv4address'
* ``IPv6Address`` for 'ipv6address'

* ``ARecordBase``

* ``ARecord`` for 'record:a'
* ``AAAARecord`` for 'record:aaaa'

* ``PtrRecord`` (V4 and V6)

* ``PtrRecordV4`` for 'record:ptr'
* ``PtrRecordV6`` for 'record:ptr'

* ``EADefinition`` for 'extensibleattributedef'
* ``CNAMERecord`` for 'record:cname'


Search by regular expression
----------------------------

Search for partial match is supported only by low-level API for now.
Use '~' with field name to search by regular expressions. Not all
fields support search by regular expression. Refer to wapidoc to find
out complete list of fields that can be searched this way. Examples:

Find all networks that starts with '10.10.':

.. code:: python

conn = connector.Connector(opts)
nw = conn.get_object('network', {'network~': '10.10.'})


Find all host records that starts with '10.10.':

.. code:: python

conn = connector.Connector(opts)
hr = conn.get_object('record:host', {'ipv4addr~': '10.10.'})
