    Hi Avinash,

    Thanks for starting this discussion. We had an internal discussion
    about which way (IRR->ROAs or ROAs -> IRR) would be best.

    IMO, creating route objects from the current MyAFRINIC ROA interface
    doesn’t seem to be practical, as a ROA can contain several prefixes
    (v4 and/or v6) + max length. We can have a section on MyAFRINIC
    where the user can manage all IRR objects related to the resources
    the member holds. During creation of a route(6) object, if the
    member’s RPKI engine is activated, an option to create a ROA
    appears, the user ticks the “Create ROA” checkbox and both route
    objects and the ROAs are generated. Similarly, when a route object
    is deleted, the equivalent ROA is revoked.

    Caveats to be dealt with:
    - ROAs have additional information such as start and end dates and
    max length, route objects have prefix-length only.
    - ROAs cannot be modified, they can only be revoked
    - Route objects do not have max-length i.e. the max-length in the
    ROA should be set equal to the prefix-length to match the route object


This article [1] would, perhaps, be of interest. 

Amresh, can we also have a similar OT&E (Operational Test & Evaluation)
[2] environment in our context ?

I suggest you to implement your idea in a test environment then allow
users to try it and propose changes|ameliorations until we reach the
next 'release'...
