Infoblox network activities

The Infoblox network activities manage networks using an Infoblox DDI Grid Server.

Use these activities to create, list, or delete networks on an Infoblox server.

Create Network activity

The Create Network activity creates new networks on a specified Infoblox server.

The network activities use the REST Web Service activity designer template to manage network 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 > Network.

Input variables

Table 1. Create Network input variables
Variable Description
InfobloxServer Name of the Infoblox DDI Grid Server.
network Address of the network to create.
restCredentials The sys_id of the REST credentials from the ServiceNow instance.

Output variables

Table 2. Create Network output variables
Variable Description
NetworkCreated Address of the network created.
error Displays the message for any REST error encountered.

Conditions

Table 3. Create Network conditions
Variable Description
Success Activity successfully created the network.
Failure Activity failed to create the network.

Get Network Details activity

The Get Network Details activity retrieves the information about a specific network on an Infoblox server.

The network activities use the REST Web Service activity designer template to manage network 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 > Network.

Input variables

Table 4. Get Network Details input variables
Variable Description
InfobloxServer Name of the Infoblox DDI Grid Server.
network Address of the network whose details you want to see.
restCredentials The sys_id of the REST credentials from the ServiceNow instance.

Output variables

The output variables from this activity are objects on the Infoblox server used to identify network details. For more information, refer to the Infoblox documentation.

Table 5. Get Network Details output variables
Variable Description
error Displays the message for any REST error encountered.
NetworkOptions The NetworkOptions array contains these attributes:
  • reference: Reference value for the network requested. This value is in the form of network/ZG5zLm5ldHdvcmskMTAuMS4wLjAvMTYvMA:10.1.0.0%2F1
  • options: The options array contains these attributes:
    • name: Name of the network option returned, such as domain-name-server.
    • num: Index number of the option. For example, the index for domain-name-server is 6.
    • use_option: Indicates whether a DHCP option is used at that level in the network heirarchy. Set this value to True to override the Grid Level DHCP option with this option at the network level.
    • value: Value to use for this option. For example, the value for the domain-name-server option is the IP address of the server machine.
    • vendor_class: The class of the network object. The options are DHCP, DNS, or IPAM.

Conditions

Table 6. Get Network Details conditions
Variable Description
Success Activity successfully retrieved network details from the Infoblox server.
Failure Activity failed to retrieve network details from the Infoblox server.

Delete Network activity

The Delete Network activity deletes a network from an Infoblox server.

The network activities use the REST Web Service activity designer template to manage network 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 > Network.

Input variables

Table 7. Delete Network input variables
Variable Description
InfobloxServer Name of the Infoblox DDI Grid Server.
networkToDelete Reference number of the network to delete from the Infoblox server. You can obtain this value either by using the List Registered Networks activity or when creating a network with the Create Network activity. An example of the network reference value is: network/ZG5zLm5ldHdvcmskMTUuMC40NS4wLzI0LzA:15.0.45.0/24/default.
restCredentials The sys_id of the REST credentials from the ServiceNow instance.

Output variables

Table 8. Delete Network output variables
Variable Description
DeletedNetwork Reference number of the deleted network from the Infoblox server.
error Displays the message for any REST error encountered.

Conditions

Table 9. Delete Network conditions
Variable Description
Success Activity successfully deleted the network.
Failure Activity failed to delete the network.

List Registered Networks activity

The List Registered Networks activity retrieves all the networks associated with an Infoblox server.

The network activities use the REST Web Service activity designer template to manage network 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 > Network.

Input variables
