Host Database 'Date to Delete' Field Added

OIT Network Systems
January 2 2008

The Host Database has been enhanced to add a 'Date to Delete' field.

This new field may be specified in a Host Database entry to cause the entry to be deleted automatically on a specified date. (Occasionally the deletion is a few business days later, if for example, the deletion requires special handling.)

The field is optional. If unspecified, the Host Database entry will continue to have no specified deletion date, as in the past.

This field may not be specified in Host Database entries that represent Dormnet subscriptions. Dormnet subscriptions are already deleted automatically once the customer is no longer eligible for a Dormnet subscription.

Detailed documentation is available for the new DATE-TO-DELETE field.
