I created a prefix 2a0a:e5c1:144:1::/64 using netbox web interface. It can be seen at http://netbox-dev.ungleich.ch/ipam/prefixes/1/ then use netbox's official Python library pynetbox to get and consume next free ip

import pynetbox

# Create connection
nb = pynetbox.api('http://netbox-dev.ungleich.ch/', 
                  token='6042908243ca4b3cb81040064165eb187af48b6f')

# Get prefix of which we want to get
# next free ip address of
prefix = nb.ipam.prefixes.get(1)

# Get free IP
free_ip = prefix.available_ips.list()[0]
print("Free IP", free_ip)

# Consume or Mark that IP as used
prefix.available_ips.create(data={"address": free_ip["address"]})

print("Free IP after using last", prefix.available_ips.list()[0])

Output:

Free IP {'family': 6, 'address': '2a0a:e5c1:144:1::/64', 'vrf': None}
Free IP after using last {'family': 6, 'address': '2a0a:e5c1:144:1::1/64', 'vrf': None}
