ACSP Suggestion 2014.11: Changes to Template & Process for NETMODs


Heather Schiller

The netmod template reverts to manual processing by hostmaster when the prefix length matches the allocation. For example, ARIN allocates a /18 and you have swip'd out the entire /18. It seems the automation doesn't understand which record to remove (the parent or the subdelegation)

Suggestion: Change the netmod template and process to accept submissions to Modify or Remove by Net Handle. When you swip the prefix it has a unique nethandle, separate from the parent allocation. This should be sufficient to tell which record should be modified. If you don't want to allow modification or removal of the direct allocation with a Netmod, and if all direct allocation NetHandles end in -01, it should be easy enough to exclude those.

This would cut down the number of templates that have to be manually processed.

Timeframe: Immediate
