Python Question

Get IP from VM object using azure sdk in python

I am trying to get all the IPs (attached to VMs) from an azure subscription.

I have pulled all the VMs using

compute_client = ComputeManagementClient(credentials, subscription_id)
network_client = NetworkManagementClient(credentials,subscription_id)


for vm in compute_client.virtual_machines.list_all():
print(vm.network_profile.network_interface)


But the network_profile object seems to only be a pointer, I have read through the documentation and can not figure out how to link each vm to its attached IP addresses

I came across this: Is there any python API which can get the IP address (internal or external) of Virtual machine in Azure

But it seems that something has changed.

I am able to resolve the IPs of a machine only if I know the name of the Public_IP address object(Which not all of them have public IPs).

I need to be able to take this network_interface and resolve the IP on it

Answer

So It seems that in order to get the IPs, you need to parse the URI given in the vm.network_profile.network_interface. Then use the the subscription and the nic name to get the IP using network_client.network_interfaces.get().

The code I used is below:

compute_client = ComputeManagementClient(credentials, subscription_id)
network_client = NetworkManagementClient(credentials,subscription_id)
        try:
            get_private(compute_client, network_client)
        except:
            print("Auth failed on "+ subscription_id)



def get_private(compute_client, network_client):


    for vm in compute_client.virtual_machines.list_all():
        for interface in vm.network_profile.network_interfaces:
            name=" ".join(interface.id.split('/')[-1:])
            sub="".join(interface.id.split('/')[4])

            try:
                thing=network_client.network_interfaces.get(sub, name).ip_configurations

                for x in thing:
                    print(x.private_ip_address)

            except:
                print("nope")

In this example you could also do x.public_ip_address to get the public IPs
