I was one staffing the ape sector. Aircraft X was filed ord..ape.J186.odf.WHINZ1.atl. I clicked on the routing portion of the flight plan in uret and tried to give direct hmv. The routing pops up as ape.J186.sot.FLCON3.atl. If I do a quick search while one staffing a sector and click on hmv and send the amendment it will change the arrival into atl. I would have thought that all I did was give direct hmv and the routing to stay the same. This is a known trap happening quite frequently and has to do with the automation between ZID and ZTL not wanting the same thing. ZID wants to be able to put in an amendment without having to do extra work and worry about the arrival changing inadvertently.

Title: ZID CTLR VOICED CONCERN REGARDING URET PROTOCOLS USED IN VARIOUS CENTERS THAT RESULTED IN UNWANTED/UNKNOWN ROUTING CHANGES.
Narrative: I WAS ONE STAFFING THE APE SECTOR. ACFT X WAS FILED ORD..APE.J186.ODF.WHINZ1.ATL. I CLICKED ON THE ROUTING PORTION OF THE FLT PLAN IN URET AND TRIED TO GIVE DIRECT HMV. THE ROUTING POPS UP AS APE.J186.SOT.FLCON3.ATL. IF I DO A QUICK SEARCH WHILE ONE STAFFING A SECTOR AND CLICK ON HMV AND SEND THE AMENDMENT IT WILL CHANGE THE ARR INTO ATL. I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT ALL I DID WAS GIVE DIRECT HMV AND THE ROUTING TO STAY THE SAME. THIS IS A KNOWN TRAP HAPPENING QUITE FREQUENTLY AND HAS TO DO WITH THE AUTOMATION BTWN ZID AND ZTL NOT WANTING THE SAME THING. ZID WANTS TO BE ABLE TO PUT IN AN AMENDMENT WITHOUT HAVING TO DO EXTRA WORK AND WORRY ABOUT THE ARR CHANGING INADVERTENTLY.
