Automation & Monitoring

AKA is a DNS management system for IT staff. It allows you to view both internal (Duke University & Duke Health) and external (public) views on a single page and edit them as one. 

Primary Goals:

  • Simplify management across Internal/External DNS View
  • Visualize relationships between DNS records
  • Allow departments to manage permissions
  • Track changes
  • Easy-to-use API 
  • Cleanup of unused IPs

Permissions are: 

  • Based on groups in Group Manager
  • Set at DNS Zone and Subnet level
  • Allows IT Staff to see and edit permissions
  • Two levels
  • Operator (can create/delete/edit records)
  • Owner (operator + set permissions)
