Enclose all tag elements in a reply from the NETCONF server. The immediate child tag element is usually one of the following:

  • The XML tag element that encloses the data requested by a client application with an XML operational request tag element; for example, the <interface-information> tag element in response to the <get-interface-information> tag element

  • The <data> tag element, to enclose the data requested by a client application with the <get-config> tag element

  • The <ok/> tag, to confirm that the NETCONF server successfully performed an operation that changes the state or contents of a configuration (such as a lock, change, or commit operation)

  • The <output> tag element, if the XML API does not define a specific tag element for requested operational information

  • The <rpc-error> tag element, if the requested operation generated an error or warning


xmlns—Names the default XML namespace for the enclosed tag elements.
