Candidate Configuration

Candidate Configuration

This capability indicates that the device supports the <candidate/> configuration database storing configuration data that is about to be committed on the device.

The <candidate/> configuration database holds a complete set of configuration data that can be manipulated without impacting the device's current configuration. The <candidate/> configuration database serves as a work place for creating and manipulating configuration data.

Additions, deletions, and changes can be made to the data in the <candidate/> configuration database to construct the desired configuration data. The following operations can be performed at any time:

  • <commit>: converts all configuration data in the <candidate/> configuration database into running configuration data.

    If the device is unable to commit all of the changes in the <candidate/> configuration database, the running configuration data remains unchanged.

  • <discard-changes>: discards configuration data that has not been committed from the <candidate/> configuration database. After this operation is performed, the configuration data in the <candidate/> configuration database remains the same as that in the <running/> configuration database.

A device establishes an independent <candidate/> configuration database for each NETCONF session.
