Hi there,

 

Signal Draft 4.4.1.  Request Mitigation

 

   In the PUT request at least one of the attributes 'target-prefix',

   'target-fqdn', 'target-uri', or 'alias-name' MUST be present.

 

Data Draft 6.1.  Create Aliases

 

   In POST or PUT requests, at least one of the 'target-prefix',

   'target-fqdn', or 'target-uri' attributes MUST be present.  DOTS

   agents can safely ignore Vendor-Specific parameters they don't

   understand.

 

So, it is not possible to have an Alias template that contains just ports or
protocols that can be used in a mitigation request that does include the
'target-prefix', 'target-fqdn', or 'target-uri' attributes.  Is this too
restrictive?

 

Possible updates

 

Signal Draft 4.4.1.  Request Mitigation

 

NEW:

   In the PUT request at least one of the attributes 'target-prefix',

   'target-fqdn', 'target-uri', or 'alias-name' where the alias contains at
least one of the attributes 'target-prefix', 'target-fqdn', 'target-uri',
MUST be present.

 

Data Draft 6.1.  Create Aliases

 

NEW:

   In POST or PUT requests, at least one of the 'target-',

   attributes MUST be present.  DOTS

   agents can safely ignore Vendor-Specific parameters they don't

   understand.

 

 

Regards

 

Jon
