ACSP Suggestion 2021.14: Add Ability to Modify Existing Reassignments in ARIN Online


Author: Kathleen Hunter   
Submitted On: 01 July 2021

Description: Add the ability to Modify an existing WHOIS record via ARIN online. Currently, the only way to do a modify on an existing reassign is to do it through the email service. Online, there is only the ability to either delete or add. For historical purposes, deleting a block that has been added 5 years ago could have investigative implications if it is deleted and readded. Modify keeps the history of the block intact. I would suggest on the IP Address reassign area that there be the ability to add or modify existing. Most key fields would remain the same.

Value to Community: I believe most in the community are trying their best to use API services or ARIN online and move away from the email updates. Currently, the modify function just isn’t available within ARIN online
