Convert Partial Zone to Full Zone

In the near future I would like to convert a partial zone into a full zone, without downtime. The documentation suggests to delete the zone activation TXT record and wait for the TTL to expire.

In a similar issue asked here, this step is not mentioned.

Is the step of deleting the TXT record necessary? Will it cause problems for the existing partial records that are in use?


Deletion of the txt record will not impact other records in use unless Cloudflare has been unable to renew your SSL cert in the 30 days before it expires and it would have succeeded in the time between the deletion of thebTXT record and the expiration of your cert where you still hadn’t gotten around to updating nameservers.

Which is to say effectively… no it won’t impact the existing records.
