Yep, you can search for a VM using many attributes, for example to
search for a VM using IP address:


Here you have more search parameters you can use to find a VM:

OK, that's a great place for me to start. However the problem is that all my post-install tooling is now running on a VM that knows nothing about itself (having been installed via pxe and kickstart) like it's {vm_id}.  Can the API be used to query for a VM and it's attributes based on something like a MAC address or the IP itself?

    The FQDN is listed right in the basic information of the VM quering the
    VM itself:


    You can find all the information about specific attributes returned by
    the API here in the documentation:

        Is there an API endpoint that VM's can query to discover it's

        trying to stitch a lot of automation workflow together and so
        far I have had great luck with oVirt. But the next small hurdle
        is to figure out how all the post-install setup stuff can figure
        out who the VM is so it can the appropriate configurations.
