Apple Business Manager: verify ownership of wikimedia.org
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Updated Requirement
Starting May 26, 2021, Apple will require organizations to verify all existing and new domains associated with Apple Business Manager.

The domain @wikimedia.org has not been verified. If we do not verify this domain, we will no longer be able to create new Managed Apple IDs using this domain after May 26, 2021.

Action Required
To continue to use and create new Managed Apple IDs on @wikimedia.org, we must verify the wikimedia.org domain by pasting the following txt record into the DNS zone file:

apple-domain-verification=yYhpGRw8Sw0KZA7k

Is this possible? Thanks.

@bcampbell sorry for the delays, this has repeatedly fallen through the cracks, but it's reviewed + merged now and should verify!

Hey @BBlack all good, thanks for the help. Unfortunately, the verification random string resets itself every 14 calendar days, so the txt record in the original request is now invalid. Can we update with the new txt record below?

apple-domain-verification=2mPSlDXQGJaNf9gd

Once we're able to successfully verify our domain, we can remove this record from the zone file. Thanks!

@bcampbell - Updated with the new record, try again?

@BBlack Bingo, that worked. Our domain is now verified. Apple's documentation says you can remove the record now if you want.
