- The no-plan node is required. Use this node if want a subscription that is not associated with any of the service plans. Data type: none.
Response Packet Structure
The switch-subscription node of the output XML packet is structured as follows:
- The result node is required. It wraps the response retrieved from the server. Data type: ResultFilterType (
- The status node is required. It specifies the execution status of the operation. Data type: string. Allowed values: ok | error.
- The errcode node is optional. It is used to return the error code when the operation fails. Data type: unsignedInt.
- The errtext node is optional. Can be used to return the error message if the operation fails. Data type: string.
- The filter-id node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds. Returns a filtering rule. For info on filters, refer to the Available Filters section. Data type: anySimple.
- The id node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds. Returns the unique identifier of the subscription. Data type: integer.

The Current column contains the current value of the option. The Requested column contains the requested value for the option. The Allowed column contains the changed values. The other values remain in the Current state after the operation is performed.
