ACSP Suggestion 2022.7: IRR Transaction Log for RESTful API


Author: Anonymous   
Submitted On: 18 February 2022


Although IRR email changes are slow, a validation and confirmation email was sent after the change was committed - so there was a record of the change. When using the API to make RPSL changes, the change is silent except for the updated record itself.

A transaction log is required of user’s org RPSL and RPKI object changes made via REST API or from within the associated account’s web interface.

If this feature exists currently within the REST API it is not documented in and it’s not available in the web UI in the Downloads & Services section.

Value to Community: Logging of changes is good practice.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2022.7 on confirmed receipt, requesting that we make a transaction log available for RPSL changes made to the IRR using the REST API, which can be accessed via the API or within the associated account’s web interface. We agree this would be a helpful change and benefit customers using the IRR API. We rely on customer input to help identify improvements and enhancements to ARIN services. Our development calendar is fully booked for 2022, but we will include your suggestion on the list of features for consideration in our 2023 prioritization process.
