ACSP Suggestion 2018.4: Mass Delete of Managed Reassignments Within ARIN Online


Author: Anthony Delacruz   
Submitted On: 28 March 2018

Description: Feature in webportal to do mass deletes on a network range. Say I have a parent big block lets call it a /13. Within that there is a contiguous /19 worth that has 80-100 of reassignments all to different entities, all of which I know are old, unused, and wrong. Rather than having to delete every single one by one could we have an option in the webportal to match on range and after say a 2 or 3 safety clicks are you really sure you want to nuke everything in this confirm blow it away.

Value to Community: I’ve spent the last day clearing out old entries on a /19 worth to repurpose using the search and delete on numerous /29’s thru /24’s that are all within a contiguous block but I don’t want to use the option to clear out the entire parent which has other valid entries. There must be others that don’t follow-up on cleanup because of the hassle in getting it done. This could make it easier to clean out large sections of stale whois.
