whois -h whois.afrinic.net -t as-set
.. ‘org’ is an optional element, when registering an as-set. (it is
the same at ripe-ncc and apnic)
this is true if you try to register an as-set via the cli (ie. sending
pgp-signed email to the robot).
however, when trying to register an as-set via the my.afrinic.net member
portal, the afrinic portal user interface *requires* this? (ie. this
is not optional)
i logged “[AFRINIC Hostmaster #768859] error in as-set registration
form on my.afrinic.net”, with the afrinic team, and i was told:
“If an AS-SET is created without the ORG, it would not populate under
list for the member organisation. Meanwhile, we are working on removing
mandatory aspect of having the organisation during the as-set creation
when i objected to the discrepancy, and asked when this would be
normalised, i received:
“We shall get back to you in due course to share the ETR”.
the ticket has no confidential information, and, if you want to be added
as a cc: to track progress, you can simply email hostmaster at afrinic.net
with the subject line containing: “[AFRINIC Hostmaster #768859]”
