Do you have time for a two-minute survey?





Specify the index number of the first object to return (1 for the first object, 2 for the second, and so on) when requesting information about a configuration object of a specified type. If the attribute is omitted, the returned set of objects starts with the first one in the configuration hierarchy.

The attribute can be combined with one or more of the count, matching, and recurse attributes.

If the application requests Junos XML-tagged output (the default), the Junos XML protocol server includes two attributes for each returned object:

  • junos:position—Specifies the object’s numerical index.

  • junos:total—Reports the total number of such objects that exist in the hierarchy.

These attributes do not appear if the client requests formatted ASCII output by including the format="text" attribute in the opening <get-configuration> tag.
