RESTCONF

RESTCONF as defined in RFC 8040 is used to programmatically interface with data defined in YANG models whilst also using datastore concepts defined in NETCONF.

The goal of RESTCONF is to provide a RESTful API experience whilst still leveraging device abstraction capabilities provided by NETCONF.

RESTCONF supports the following HTTP methods and CRUD operations:

  • GET
  • POST
  • PUT
  • DELETE
  • OPTIONS

The RESTCONF requests and responses can be XML or JSON formats.
