Automatic script for Mikrotik RouterOS updating record on CloudFlare.
#########################################################################
# ================================================== #
# $ Mikrotik RouterOS update script for CloudFlare $ #
# ================================================== #
# #
# - You need a CloudFlare account & api key (look under settings), #
# a zone and A record in it #
# - All variables in first section are obvious, except CFid, #
# To obtain CFid use following command in any unix shell: #
# curl https://www.cloudflare.com/api_json.html -d 'a=rec_load_all' -d 'tkn=YOUR_API_KEY' -d 'email=email@example.com' -d 'z=domain.com'|python -mjson.tool
# - Enable CFDebug if needed - it'll print some info to logs #
# - Put script under /system scripts giving "read" policy access. #
# For 6.29 and older "test" policy is also needed. #
# - Add script to /system scheduler using it's name in "on-event" #

Hello,

I've been doing the same (update DNS record from my Mikrotik) for quite a while but some days ago I received a mail saying API v1 is deprecated. v4 should be used and it uses headers to authenticate. Apparently fetch doesn't support headers. Did you find any solution?

Thank you

I would also use that solution. @dynek @kiler129

curl -X GET "https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones/[Zone ID]/dns_records"
-H "X-Auth-Email: [Email]"
-H "X-Auth-Key: [API Key]"
-H "Content-Type: application/json"

To be fair I never updated that script (and @viritt's fork mentioned above should work) because since introduction of MikroTik IP Cloud there's no point in doing so.

You can just set-up a CNAME on CF like so:

If it bothers you that there's an extra DNS query (I cannot think about any realistic scenario here) you can even enable CNAME Flattening and it will look like a standard A record.
