    Hi, I'm looking for a means of adding and/or modifying multiple DNS records for a single domain in one go, via a WHM API. Domains in the DNS have no relation to a WHM user.

    When using multiple "editzonerecord" API calls, the SOA serial is +1'ed at every request and I have to juggle with line numbers when changing and removing multiple records in one go...

    How can I achieve a DNS zone modification in a transaction of some sort?

    We document how to use this WHM API 1 function at:

    WHM API 1 Functions - editzonerecord - Developer Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Using the dumpzone function and line numbers is the most effective way to use this API function, as noted:

    Otherwise, an alternative would be to manually modify the zone file directly via the command line (/var/named/$domain.tld.db) outside of the API.

    Thank you.
