Add Host Record - BlueCat Address Manager - 9.0.0

Address Manager API Guide

English (United States)
Product name
BlueCat Address Manager

Adds host records for IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. All addresses must be valid addresses.

This method will add the record under a zone. In order to add records under templates, you must use Add Entity for Resource Records.

When adding a host record, the reverseRecord property, if not explicitly set in the properties string, is set to true and Address Manager creates a reverse record automatically. IPv4 addresses can be added in both workflow and non-workflow mode. IPv6 addresses can be added in non-workflow mode only. For more information on workflow mode, see Workflow Change Requests.
