  • Use the get(), add(), delete(), and update() methods to manipulate Address Manager entities. This example shows the addition of a new configuration with a shared network:
    # Add a new configuration with a shared network
    my $configuration = APIEntity->new( "id" => 0,
                 "name" => "Test Configuration",
                 "type" => ObjectTypes::Configuration,
                 "properties" =>              ObjectProperties::sharedNetwork."=".$existingSharedNetwork1->
                 get_id()."|" );
    my $configurationId = $service->addEntity( SOAP::Data->type( 'long' )->
                 name( 'parentId' )->
                 value( 0 )->
                 attr({xmlns => ''}),
    SOAP::Data->type( 'APIEntity' )->name( 'entity' )->
                 value( $configuration )->
                 attr({xmlns => ''}) )->
    print "New Configuration id = ".$configurationId.->get_id()."\n";
  • Use the getUserDefinedFields() method to find the user-defined fields with their settings and values in Address Manager. For example:
    my @udfs= $service->getUserDefinedFields( SOAP::Data->type( 'string' )->name( 'type' )->value( ObjectTypes::Device )->attr({xmlns => ''}),
    SOAP::Data->type( 'boolean' )->name( 'requiredFieldsOnly' )->value( 'false' )
    ->attr({xmlns => ''}) )
    print"number of fields=".@udfs."\n";
    for my $eachUDF ( @udfs )
    my $udf = BAMConnection->blessAPIUserDefinedField( "object" => $eachUDF );
    print $udf->get_name()."\n";
    print "Name=".$udf->get_name()."\n";
    print "DisplayName=".$udf->get_displayName()."\n";
    print "Type=".$udf->get_type()."\n";
    print "defaultValue=".$udf->get_defaultValue()."\n";
    print "Validator Properties=".$udf->get_validatorProperties()."\n";
    print "PredefinedValues=".$udf->get_predefinedValues()."\n";
    print "Required=".$udf->get_required()."\n";
    print "Hide from search=".$udf->get_hideFromSearch()."\n";
    print "Radio=".$udf->get_renderAsRadioButton()."\n";
Note: The renderAsRadioButton property has been deprecated. For more information, refer to Changes in behavior.

For almost all object types, the add() and most get() methods require parentID, which is the ID of the parent object. The following objects can take 0 (zero) as the parentID: Configuration, TagGroup, User, UserGroup, and Authenticator.
