replace

 

Usage

Description

Specify that the configuration element completely replace the element that has the same identifier (in the Usage section, the identifier tag element is called <name>) in the candidate configuration or open configuration database. If the attribute is omitted, the Junos XML protocol server merges the element with the existing element as described in Merging Elements in Configuration Data Using the Junos XML Protocol. The only acceptable value for the attribute is "replace".

The client application must also include the action="replace" attribute in the opening <load-configuration> tag.

Note

Starting in Junos OS Release 18.1R1, the ephemeral configuration database supports loading configuration data using the <load-configuration> action attribute values of override and replace in addition to the previously supported values of merge and set.

The replace attribute can be combined with either the active or inactive attribute, as described in Changing a Configuration Element’s Activation State Simultaneously with Other Changes Using the Junos XML Protocol.
