[arin-tech-discuss] Restful Question -- Error 403

Hello Gavin,

The parent org handle field should be left blank, IIRC. That's the only thing I spotted with a quick look. Perhaps give that a try and see if it goes through OK. If not, reply back to the list or me directly so we can figure out what's going on.

Apologies if this is a repeat, I am unsure if the first message I sent went through...

I am trying to automate some ARIN registrations and am running into an odd error...

When I try to create a new customer record, submitting this data (with actual values) via a python requests.post call, I get an error 403 with the error text as {'componentErrors': [], 'additionalMessages': [], 'code': 'E_UNSPECIFIED', 'message': 'This method for internal ARIN use only.'}.  Any idea on what method they are referring to and how to correct it?  This happens on both the OTE database and the live database.

Thank you!
