Request Packet Structure

A request XML packet retrieving descriptor of add-on plan hosting settings includes the get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation node:

<packet>
<service-plan-addon>
   <get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
   ...
   </get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
</service-plan-addon>
</packet>

 

The get-physical-hosting-descriptor node is presented by type DomainAddonTemplateGetInputType (domain_addon_template.xsd). Its graphical representation is as follows:

addon-get-physical-hosting-descriptor-input

  • The filter node is required. It specifies a criteria by which add-on plans will be selected. Data type: DomainAddonTemplateFilterType (domain_addon_template.xsd). See the Available Filters section for details on this node.
  • The owner-id node is optional. It specifies the ID of the add-on plan owner. Data type: integer.
  • The owner-login node is optional. It specifies the username of the add-on plan owner. Data type: string.
 

Response Packet Structure

The get-physical-hosting-descriptor node of the output XML packet is of type DomainAddonTemplateDescriptorOutput (domain_addon_template.xsd) which is structured as follows:

addon-get-physical-hosting-descriptor-output

  • The result node is required. It wraps the result of the requested get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation. Data type: ResultFilterType (common.xsd).
  • The status node is required. It returns the execution status of the get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation. Data type: result_status (common.xsd). Allowed values: ok|error.
  • The errcode node is optional. Is used to return the error code when the get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation fails. Data type: unsignedInt.
  • The errtext node is optional. Can be used to return an error message if the get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation fails. Data type: string.
  • The id node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds and the results are filtered by ID. It returns an ID of the add-on plan which hosting settings descriptor was displayed. Data type: id_type (common.xsd).
  • The name node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds and the results are filtered by name. It returns a name of the add-on plan which hosting settings descriptor was displayed. Data type: string (common.xsd).
  • The guid node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds and the results are filtered by GUID. It returns a GUID of the add-on plan which hosting settings descriptor was displayed. Data type: string (common.xsd).
  • The external-id node is optional. It is required if the operation succeeds and the results are filtered by external ID. It returns the external ID of the add-on plan which hosting settings descriptor was displayed. Data type: string (common.xsd).
  • The descriptor node is required if the get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation succeeds. It specifies object descriptor. For details, refer to the Representation of Object Descriptors section. Data type: string.

    Note: This descriptor contains hosting settings extensions. For details, refer to the Representation of Object Descriptors: Property Descriptor > Extension of Limits Descriptor section.

 

Samples

The following packet retrieves hosting settings descriptor for a service plan:

<packet>
<service-plan-addon>
<get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
   <filter>
      <name>base_plan</name>
   </filter>
<get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
</service-plan-addon>
</packet>

Response:

<packet>
  <service-plan-addon>
    <get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
      <result>
        <status>ok</status>
        <name>1 Additional Gigabyte</name>
        <descriptor>
          <property>
            <name>ftp_quota</name>
            <type>bytes</type>
            <writable-by>none</writable-by>
            <label>__hard_disk_quota</label>
            <extension>
              <levels>domain</levels>
              <levels>subdomain</levels>
            </extension>
          </property>
          <property>
            <name>fp_auth</name>
            <type>boolean</type>
            <writable-by>none</writable-by>
            <label>__fp_unix_auth</label>
            <extension>
              <levels>domain</levels>
            </extension>
          </property>
                ...
          <bind>
            <ref>cgi_mode</ref>
            <relevant>
              <name>cgi</name>
              <value>true</value>
            </relevant>
            <read-only>0</read-only>
          </bind>
                ...
        </descriptor>
      </result>
    </get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
  </service-plan-addon>
</packet>

Note: Data structures that describe a number of properties are omitted to improve the readability of the sample.

A single filter can specify multiple plans, all specified either by ID or by name.

<packet>
<service-plan-addon>
<get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
   <filter>
      <name>base_plan</name>
      <name>quick_plan</name>
   </filter>
</get-physical-hosting-descriptor>
</service-plan-addon>
</packet>
