API Additions in v14.15.0

We are excited to announce general availability of v14.15.0 with the following changes:



We have created a new version (v1.1) of DNS Zones API to allow API consumers to create multiple DNS zones with the same name but different nameservers.  v1.0 limited this functionality as the name field was the only key fields. With v1.1, you may now create multiple records with unique combinations of name and nameserver.  If you need to update the nameserver, you may provide the parameter new_nameserver to update the existing record.

curl -X POST -d "name=zonename&nameserver=servername" -u "admin:adm!nd42" --insecure
curl -X POST -d "name=zonename&nameserver=oldName&new_nameserver=updatedToName" -u "admin:adm!nd42" --insecure


Device Name Profile API

You can now create, update and delete Device Name Profiles via the API.
curl -X GET -u 'admin:adm!nd42' https://yourdevice42address/api/1.0/device_name_profile --insecure

Operating Systems API

We have modified Operation System API to return and filter by manufacturer.


curl -X GET -u 'admin:adm!nd42' https://yourdevice42address/api/1.0/operatingsystems/?manufacturer=Microsoft --insecure
