# Example of how to transfer zones from pycontrol v.2. This example passes in
# the  'fromurl' keyword as True (default is False), which tells pycontrol
# to fetch the WSDL from the remote BigIP.
# For more information:

# transfer_zone() function takes four params:
#
# transfer_zone(
    # in String [] server_names,
    # in String [] src_zone_names,
    # in String [] dst_view_names,
    # in Management__ZoneInfo [] zone_records
# );

# You pass arrays in iControl to do things in batch
# so even though you may be grabbing all zones from one server, 
# you need to repeat that same server for every zone 
# ex.
# src_zone_names = ["f5lab1.com.", "f5lab2.com.", "f5lab3.com." ]
# server_names =   ["10.70.65.1", "10.70.65.1", "10.70.65.1" ]
#
# so will assume 
#   1) transfering from one dns server 
#   2) Zones will end up as type Master
#   3) Zones will be named same as zone name with "db." + view prepended similar to BIGIP Defaults 
#  and just auto-populate the arrays 
#
# obviously make sure you have the BIGIP Self IP in "allow-transfer {10.70.11.1;};" options of originating zone.

#Master Lists to pack things in so can make batch calls:
src_zone_names_array = src_zone_names

dst_view_names_array = []
zone_records_array = []

#Autopopulate other arrays using src_zone_names info
for zone_name in src_zone_names_array:
    
    #1st Param
    server_names_array.append(dns_server)
    #3rd Param
    dst_view_names_array.append(view)

    #Set up ZoneInfo [] object which you feed to zone_records array
    zone_info_obj = z.typefactory.create('Management.ZoneInfo')
