"Only the uuid attribute is read by the AXL API." Means...?

I've been trying to create a simplified documentation of some AXL methods by editing the schema and was wondering the exact meaning of the title statement (Only the uuid attribute is read by the AXL API).

Does this annotation mean that a created request only requires the uuid as an attribute for this element? Will the CallManager simply ignore the sub-elements in the type definition?


Re: "Only the uuid attribute is read by the AXL API." Means...?

Basically that means that whenever the documentation lists a whole element structure, the only thing you have to specify is the uuid.

E.g. the element in a element - for an updatePhone, you'd specify


instead of going into the details of directoryNumber. Of course, you could specify the whole directoryNumber element, but the XML parser on the CCM (which by the way appears to be using regexp matching and is not a real xml parser) would simply look for the uuid, and if it's not there, refuse to process the command.
