Hi,

I want to send a request to the netbox API and find one device with a specific IP address.


fails and returns a list of all devices. Ideas?

Hmm, I thought of https://127.0.0.1/api/dcim/devices/?primary_ip4=192.2.0.16 but that doesn't work either.

The available filters are in class DeviceFilterSet. I think a primary_ip(|4|6) filter here is a reasonable thing to want.

(It would also be nice if unrecognized query parameters gave a 400 error, but I expect that's a limitation of an underlying library)

Hi,

it seems that these filter primary_ip(|46) just do not exist. That would be bad for my task.

You can create a Feature Request on github.

I think it should also be straightforward to make a code contribution for - but pull requests must be linked to feature requests anyway.
