Request Packet Structure

A request XML packet retrieving information on a subdomain includes the get operation node:

<packet version="1.5.2.0">
<subdomain>
   <get>
   ...
   </get>
</subdomain>
</packet>

The get node is presented by the SubdomainGetInputType (subdomain.xsd). Its graphical representation is as follows:

SubdomainGetInputType

  • The filter node is required. It specifies the filtering rule. For information on filters, refer to the Available Filters section. Data type: SubdomainFilterType (subdomain.xsd).

 

 

Response Packet Structure

The get node of the output XML packet is structured as follows:

SubdomainGetOutputType

  • The result node is required. It wraps the response retrieved from the server. Data type: resultFilterType (common.xsd).
  • The status node is required. It specifies the execution status of the get operation. Data type: result_status (common.xsd). Allowed values: ok|error.
  • The errcode node is required if the get operation fails. It returns the error code. Data type: unsignedInt.
  • The errtext node is required if the get operation fails. It returns the error message. Data type: string.
  • The filter-id node is required if the get operation succeeds. It returns the parameter by which the subdomain was filtered in the request packet. Data type: anySimple.
  • The id node is required if the get operation succeeds. It returns the ID of the subdomain which settings are retrieved in the response packet. Data type: id_type (common.xsd).
  • The data node is required if the get operation succeeds. It returns a collection of requested subdomain settings. Data type: SubdomainObjectType (subdomain.xsd). See the structure of this node below.

The data node is defined by complex type SubdomainObjectType (subdomain.xsd). It is structured as follows:

SubdomainObjectType

  • The parent node is required. It returns a name of a parent site/subdomain. Data type: string.
  • The name node is required. It returns subdomain name. Data type: string.
  • The home node is used on Plesk for Windows only. It returns a path to the subdomain's home directory relative to the parent site root directory. If the home node is left blank (<home/>), the root directory of the parent site is used. Data type: string
  • The property node is required. It returns a hosting setting. To see the structure of this node, refer to the section Subdomain Properties. Data type: SubdomainPropertyType (subdomain.xsd).

 

Possible Errors

  • 1006 - Permission is denied.
  • 1013 - Subdomain does not exist.
  • 1015 - Parent site/subdomain is not found.
  • 1023 - Operation failed.
