IPAM Reserve IP Address activity

The IPAM Reserve IP Address activity reserves an IP address in a network using Infoblox IPAM.

The output of this activity produces an InfoBlox IP address record that can be used for other IPAM functions in the format fixedaddress/<encrypted key>:<reserved ip address>/<view>.

The IPAM activities use the REST Web service activity designer template to manage IP addresses using an Infoblox DDI Grid Server. These activities are configured to use a MID Server with REST capabilities.

To access this activity in the workflow editor, select the Custom tab, and then navigate to Custom Activities > Infoblox DDI > IPAM.
