Boundaries

Geo location and IP boundaries are managed together. Geo locations have a locations field and IPs have an ips field.

Fields

  • external_ref - Arbitrary identifier used to cross reference this boundary with a record in your app.
  • id - DNScaster’s ID for the boundary, eg: bnd_sample123456. (Read-only)
  • in_use - When true, ineligible to be deleted (likely in use by a host). (Read-only)
  • ips - For IP boundaries, an array of CIDR IP address blocks.
  • locations - For Geo location boundaries, an array of location tags.
  • name - A descriptive name of the boundary.
  • nameserver_set_id - Nameserver set to which this boundary belongs.
  • object - Always boundary. (Read-only)
