Make configuration changes — <edit-config>

An example of how to use the <edit-config> RPC to modify the candidate datastore.

You can add, modify, replace or delete the configuration. You can make multiple <edit-config> RPCs if you wish.

Depending on the precise parameters that you use in your request, the operation may terminate on an error, or continue.

Note that <edit-config> will affect only the part of the configuration that you explicitly reference. You should not use it to replace the whole configuration — for that, use <copy-config> instead.

A <default-operation> set to replace will only replace the configuration where you provide a replacement, and nowhere else.

In this example, we set the description on a loopback interface. Note that the operation attribute must use the namespace of the <config> operation.

Use the <edit-config> RPC.
<rpc message-id="101" xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
  <edit-config>
    <target>
      <candidate/>
    </target>
    <config xmlns:xc="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
      <interfaces xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-interfaces:1">
        <loopback xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-interfaces-loopback:1">
          <tagnode>lo</tagnode>
          <description xc:operation="merge">Set from NETCONF</description>
        </loopback>
      </interfaces>
    </config>
  </edit-config>
</rpc>
