The architecture for the Interface to the Routing System [RFC7921] specifies that I2RS clients wishing to retrieve or change the routing state on a routing element MUST authenticate to an I2RS agent. The I2RS client will have a unique identity it provides for authentication, and should provide another opaque identity for applications communicating through it. The programming of routing state will produce a return code containing the results of the specified operation and associated reason(s) for the result. All of this is critical information to be used for understanding the history of I2RS interactions.

Interface to the Routing System (I2RS) Traceability: Framework and Information Model
This document describes a framework for traceability in the Interface to the Routing System (I2RS) and the information model for that framework. It specifies the motivation, requirements, and use cases, and defines an information model for recording interactions between elements implementing the I2RS protocol. This framework provides a consistent tracing interface for components implementing the I2RS architecture to record what was done, by which component, and when. It aims to improve the management of I2RS implementations, and can be used for troubleshooting, auditing, forensics, and accounting purposes.
