I want to get a permission to delete devices with a particular manufacturer name.
For example, I have a manufacturer named "GRSM". As per my logic, I need a constraint, something as: 
[{"device_type__manufacturer": {"name": "GRSM"}}]
But got the error below while trying to create it:
--------------------------------
<class 'TypeError'>

Field 'id' expected a number but got {'name': 'GRSM'}.

Python version: 3.7.3
NetBox version: 2.11.3
--------------------------------
What is the correct way to do what I want?

I was able to do what I want. Instead of the manufacturer name I've used its ID. My final constraint is: [{"device_type__manufacturer": 26}]

You can use dunders (double underscores) to navigate related object attributes. So to match many manufacturer name, you would do:

  [{"device_type__manufacturer__name": "GRSM"}]

Hope that helps!

You could also try {"device_type__manufacturer__name": "GRSM"}  [untested]
