[arin-tech-discuss] Reassignment Net Payload Example Request

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
I am now able to make reassignments.  I built an XML blob using only the fields in the example you sent me, rather than the full payload from the documents.

Here's a basic new simple reassignment payload I just whipped up to reply to your email with. In it, is assigned out of the block the ISP is the registrant of, (which has a net handle of

<net xmlns="http://www.arin.net/regrws/core/v1" >
	<netBlocks>		<netBlock>
			<startAddress></startAddress>			<endAddress></endAddre
		</netBlock>	</netBlocks>

The type is set to s for "assign"ment.

The customerHandle is set to C0123456789, a handle I made up for example purposes, but which you would obtain from creating the recipient customer record described at:

The parentNetHandle is set to the block we're assigning from, which in this example is a /24 direct allocation to our fake ISP. There are a few different methodologies available to you for teaching your software how to figure out the parentNetHandle.

netName is a string of text that is set by your organization, but is required in Whois.

Hope this helps some!

I¹m working on a SWIP tool that uses the restful API.  After reading the docs and fiddling around with the payload for some time I keep getting the following error:

Would it be possible for someone to reply to this message with a
(sanitized) copy of a net payload that has been used for a simple reassignment?
Thank you for your time,
