Your suggestion that ARIN create a search function within the ARIN Online to eliminate the need to manually search for resources will be added as an improvement to be implemented in the future. We understand that this is can be cumbersome process for organizations with multiple networks and ASNs.

Until a search function is in place, you do have a number of options available. If you just want to see a list, you are welcome to generate an “Associations Report” located under “Manage Resources” and view it locally. If you want to modify a resource directly through ARIN Online, you can log in and use URLs to directly access to your desired record by following the pattern of<Object_Type>/view/<Handle> .

Two examples are: to look at AS 3470, you can type in the browser .

To look at a network you can type in your browser

Thank you for your suggestion; it will remain open until implementation.

During ARIN XXVIII in Philadelphia, there will be an ARIN Online Users Forum, during which this and several other ARIN Online-related suggestions will be discussed. We encourage you to attend and participate. If you are unable to participate in person, we will also be offering remote participation and encourage you to participate remotely. Discussing ehancements with a larger audience will help us determine need and priority. This suggestion will remain open until resolved.

Per your suggestion, on 24 September as part of our latest ARIN Online release we added the capability for users to search for an IP address or AS number using the Search action within the Manage Resources tab. The search will only return resources the user has permission to view; this functionality is not an alternative to Whois.

We thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. This suggestion is now closed.
