    RESTCONF Extensions to Support the Network Management Datastore
                              Architecture
                  draft-ietf-netconf-nmda-restconf-02

Abstract

   This document extends the RESTCONF protocol defined in RFC 8040 in
   order to support the Network Management Datastore Architecture
   defined in I-D.ietf-netmod-revised-datastores.

   This document updates RFC 8040 by introducing new datastore
   resources, adding a new query parameter, and requiring the usage of
   I-D.ietf-netconf-rfc7895bis by RESTCONF servers implementing the
   Network Management Datastore Architecture.

   REF Editor: please replace "I-D.ietf-netmod-revised-datastores" and
   "I-D.ietf-netconf-rfc7895bis" above with their final RFC assignments.

1.  Introduction

   This document extends the RESTCONF protocol defined in [RFC8040] in
   order to support the Network Management Datastore Architecture (NMDA)
   defined in [I-D.ietf-netmod-revised-datastores].

   This document updates [RFC8040] in order to enable RESTCONF clients
   to discover which datastores are supported by the RESTCONF server, as
   well as determine which modules are supported in each datastore and,
   finally, to interact with all the datastores supported by the NMDA.
   Specifically, the update introduces new datastore resources, adds a
   new query parameter, and requires the usage of
   [I-D.ietf-netconf-rfc7895bis] by RESTCONF servers implementing the
   NMDA.

   The solution presented in this document is backwards compatible with
   [RFC8040].  This is achieved by only adding new resources and leaving
   the semantics of the existing resources unchanged.
