DNS Delete activity

The DNS Delete activity deletes DNS records of any type from in Infoblox server, such as C and A records.

The DNS activities use the REST Web Service activity designer template to manage DNS records using an Infoblox DDI Grid Server. These activities are configured to use a MID Server with REST capabilities.

To access this activity in the workflow editor, select the Custom tab, and then navigate to Custom Activities > Infoblox DDI > DNS.

Note: It is faster to create a new record than recover one that has been deleted.
