Creating Basic RIPE Database Objects

You need to create a number of objects in the RIPE Database in order to fill in the RIPE Database Template.

Please follow the steps below in order to create them.

1. RIPE NCC Access Account

You need to have a RIPE NCC Access account in order to be able to use the web interface of the RIPE Database.
 
You can create your RIPE NCC Access account using https://access.ripe.net/registration
 

 
 

2. Person Object and Maintainer Object

Person objects contain information about people. Each object has a unique NIC handle.

Maintainer objects protect objects in the RIPE Database. They contain the information needed to authorise creation, deletion or modification of the objects they protect.

You can create your first person and maintainer objects using the object creation tool.

Choose a name for your maintainer object and enter it in the "mntner" field.

 

 

When you receive the message "Your objects have been successfully created", make a note of your person object's primary key and mntner object's primary key.

You can use your person object's primary key (NIC handle) in the "admin-c:", "tech-c:" and "zone-c:" fields of the RIPE Database Template.

You can use your mntner object's primary key in the "mnt-by:" field of the RIPE Database Template.

You can create additional person, role and mntner objects and also change the objects you already created using RIPE Database Webupdates.

3. Organisation Object

Organisation objects contain information about organisations. Each object has a unique organisation ID ("organisation").

You can create organisation objects using RIPE Database Webupdates.

 

 

Keep "AUTO-1" in the "organisation" field.

Enter the primary key of your mntner object in the "mnt-ref" field.

Use the "bell" icon to fill in the "abuse-c" field.

 

 

When you receive this message: "Your object has been successfully created", "organisation ORG-XYZ-RIPE", make a note of the new organisation ID (ORG-XYZ-RIPE).

You can use the organisation ID in the "org:" field of the RIPE Database Template.
