ACSP Suggestion 2018.7: Improve POC Validation Functionality


Author: Andrew Dul   
Submitted On: 16 April 2018


Allow POCs to validate all direct resource POCs for a related organization

A point of contact (POC) which is associated with an organization should be able to quickly review and validate all the POCs for directly assigned or allocated records for an organization.

Note: This requested features should only be applied to directly assigned or allocated resource records.

Value to Community: This improvement in ARIN Online would allow an authorized user of an to confirm the accuracy of all of the POCs associated with the directly allocated or assigned resources. This should hopefully improve the number of validated POCs since this will allow someone to easily validate multiple POCs. Today many POC records may not be formally validated because the email address associated with the record may be sent to a role or automated response system where the validation email cannot be easily obtained for validation.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2018.7 upon confirmed receipt, requesting ARIN make improvements to POC validation functionality.

We have reviewed your suggestion and understand the request would allow an individual associated with a POC under a particular Org ID to be able to validate other POCs associated with that same Org ID, including in situations where the subject individual does not control the other associated POCs.

There are several ways this type of functionality could be implemented, especially considering differences between “role” and “individual” POC record types. We will open a formal community consultation for this suggestion to determine community support for making the requested changes. Feedback received during the consultation will help inform how ARIN will proceed in this area.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Your suggestion will remain open until we are able to provide a new update following the closure of the related community consultation.
