Request Packet Structure

A request XML packet retrieving a database server info includes the get operation node:

<packet>
<db_server>
  <get>
  ...
  </get>
</db_server>
</packet>

 

The get node has the following graphical representation:

  • The filter node is required. It specifies the filtering rule. Data type: none.
  • The id node is optional. Specifies the database server ID. Data type: integer.

Note: If the filter node is left blank (<filter/>), the operation will return info on all database servers.

Remarks

A single operation can retrieve the data of multiple database servers. Add as many different id parameters as the number of database servers info on which you want to retrieve.

<db_server>
   <get>
   ...
   </get>
...
   <get>
   ...
   </get>
</db_server>
