DEPRECATED The SoftLayer_Network_Subnet_Swip_Transaction data type contains basic information tracked at SoftLayer to allow automation of Swip creation, update, and removal requests. A specific transaction is attached to an accountId and a subnetId. This also contains a “Status Name” which tells the customer what the transaction is doing:

  • REQUEST QUEUED: Request is queued up to be sent to ARIN
  • REQUEST SENT: The email request has been sent to ARIN
  • REQUEST CONFIRMED: ARIN has confirmed that the request is good, and should be available in 24 hours
  • OK: The subnet has been checked with WHOIS and it the SWIP transaction has completed correctly
  • REMOVE QUEUED: A subnet is queued to be removed from ARIN’s systems
  • REMOVE SENT: The removal email request has been sent to ARIN
  • REMOVE CONFIRMED: ARIN has confirmed that the removal request is good, and the subnet should be clear in WHOIS in 24 hours
  • DELETED: This specific SWIP Transaction has been removed from ARIN and is no longer in effect
  • SOFTLAYER MANUALLY PROCESSING: Sometimes a request doesn’t go through correctly and has to be manually processed by SoftLayer. This may take some time.
