IPAM API with VRF Group and IP relocation bug fix in v512

Starting with device42 v5.1.2, an IPAM feature enhancement allows for passing a VRF group as an optional argument to the IP RESTful API call to add/update the IP in the correct VRF group as discussed below.

Enhanced IP API call

You can now pass a vrf_group or a vrf_group_id as arguments in the IP API call (/api/ip/). With this enhancement, if you have the same IP addresses across different VRF groups, you will be able to add/update IPs into the correct group. Here is a sample curl command:

curl -X POST -u 'admin:adm!nd42' --insecure \
-d "ipaddress=" \
-d "vrf_group=Finance Group Chicago"

IP relocation bug fix

IP relocation had a bug where a relocation of an IP to a subnet with nested subnets resulted in an error. This has been addressed in v5.1.2
