4 September 2018 – UK EPP Validate Extension

From 4 September the .UK platform will support the Validate Mapping for EPP (draft-ietf-regext-validate-03) extension.

Using the Validate Mapping extension, registrars can check potential contact data using the extension to identify whether any fields are invalid.  This enables a check to be performed in advance of a contact:create or contact:update which gives confidence about whether a request will succeed.

Following the release of the Validate Mapping extension on 4 September, .UK registrars will see the extension listed in the EPP greeting’s svcExtension element:

<extURI>urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:validate-0.1</extURI>

Example of a <greeting> element

What action do I need to take?
