API request validation/filter

Hi All,

Is there a way of ensuring that a host object created via the API meets certain requirement (among other things a valid IPv4 address is a requirement)? Given that filters are not supported on object/create/ I cannot see a way of accomplishing this without an intermediate API which I am keen to avoid.

Thanks in advance.

i guess you could check your object after creating it to validate the values of fields you would need

Thanks Someone,

I am assuming this will end up being my solution unless I can find a relatively simple API.
