8.2.0

Returns an array of IPv4 networks found under a given container object. The networks can be filtered by using ObjectProperties.hint, ObjectProperties.accessRight, and ObjectProperties.overrideType options.

Output / Response

Returns an array of IPv4 networks based on the input argument without their properties fields populated, or returns an empty array if containerId is invalid. If no access right option is specified, the View access level will be used by default.

API call:

APIEntity[] getIP4NetworksByHint ( long containerId, int start, int count, String options )
Parameter Description
containerId The object ID for the container object. It can be the object ID of any object in the parent object hierarchy. The highest parent object is the configuration level
start Indicates where in the list of objects to start returning objects. The list begins at an index of 0.
count Indicates the maximum number of child objects that this method will return. The maximum number of child objects that can be returned is 10.
options A string containing options. The Option names available in the ObjectProperties are ObjectProperties.hint, ObjectProperties.accessRight, and ObjectProperties.overrideType. Multiple options can be separated by a | (pipe) character. For example:
hint=ab|overrideType=HostRecord|accessRight=ADD
The values for the ObjectProperties.hint option can be the prefix of the IP address for a network or the name of a network.
  • Example 1
    The following example will match networks that have the network ID starting with 192.168. For example, 192.168.0.0/24 or 192.168.1.0/24.
    String options = ObjectProperties.hint + “=198.168|”
  • Example 2
    The following example will match networks that have a name starting with “abc”. For example, “abc”, “abc123” or “abcdef”.
    String options = ObjectProperties.hint + “=abc|”
Note: Matching networks to a network ID (Example 1) will take precedence over matching networks to a name (Example 2).
The values for the ObjectProperties.accessRight and ObjectProperties.overrideType options must be one of the constants listed in Access Right Values and Object Types. For example:
String options = ObjectProperties.accessRight + "=" + AccessRightValues.AddAccess + 
"|"+ ObjectProperties.overrideType + "=" + ObjectTypes.HostRecord;
