A python library to retrieve device IPs from a PHPipam installation

Project Description

What is this?

This is a tool written in python to retrieve information on devices in phpIPAM based on a keyword supplied.

This package provides a python module to retrieve info, and a command-line tool for interactive information retrieval

The tool will grab and display a switch’s IP address, hostname, and description


To Install: pip install phpIPAM-Scraper

To Use: import phpipam_scraper or from phpipam_scraper import IPAM The IPAM class accepts optional parameters for username, password, and URL. If these values are not supplied when instantiating the class, this module will attempt to prompt for them from stdin. see the API Doc for additional information.

Command Line Tool

the command line tool is called phpipam and can be used in one of two ways:

When called with an argument, it processes that specific request, and then exits. When called without a command, it drops you into a shell from which you can run multiple subcommands.

The benefit of running the shell is that phpIPAM authentication details will only be asked for once, and will be stored in memory until you exit the shell.

Warning: Please take caution when using the shell. Since phpIPAM username and password details are stored in memory for as long as the shell is active, any *disreputable* program running on your computer while the shell is running may be able to access those details while the shell is running. Most operating systems prevent this sort of behaviour, but not all do, so take care.

There are two main groups of commands which can be run from this command line tool: config and get. config commands allow you to get or set the URL of the phpIPAM installation to connect to get commands allow you to retrieve device information from phpIPAM’s search page, device page, or both. you can type phpipam [group] --help to get more information, or type help or ? from within the shell to get more information.
