Reminder: Community Consultation on Automated Templates Closes 30 January

This is a reminder of the ongoing community consultation, originally 
announced as follows on 19 December.

In response to Suggestion 2008.5: Testbed for Checking ARIN Template 
Syntax, ARIN would like additional community input regarding 
expectations for format/delivery and test/validation of automated 
templates.

ARIN is creating a new provisioning system for its customers as part of 
the Secure Login initiative. In upcoming releases, many of the templates 
that are currently submitted via e-mail will be available for online 
submission. However, there are a few templates that are currently 
delivered to ARIN via e-mail in an automated fashion. These forms do not 
lend themselves easily to manual web-based template submission system.

As ARIN is updating our provisioning systems, we would like community 
feedback on alternative methods and/or formats for delivery templates 
that are automated by our customers. There are several options under 
consideration: maintaining the current submission format for automated 
forms; providing a secure, authenticated conduit for these same forms; 
offering an XML format using a RESTFUL interface; or some other option, 
like using EPP. For example LACNIC is in the development stages of 
creating an EPP interface for their customers.

ARIN would also like input on what the community wants in terms of 
testing and validation. Connection-oriented solutions such as RESTFUL 
HTTP and EPP are more readily integrated into test frameworks and 
validation suites than e-mail templates. ARIN would know your 
expectations for both format/delivery and test/validation for automated 
templates.
