Net::DRI::Protocol::ResultStatus - Encapsulate Details of an Operation Result (with Standardization on EPP) for Net::DRI


An object of this class represents all details of an operation result as given back from the registry, with standardization on EPP as much as possible, for error codes and list of fields available.

One object may contain one or more operation results. The object is in fact a list, starting with the chronologically first/top operation result, and then using the next() call progressing toward other operation results, if available (each call to next gives an object of this class). The last operation result can be retrieved with last().

When an operation is done, data retrieved from the registry is also stored inside the ResultStatus object (besides being available through $dri->get_info()). It can be queried using the get_data() and get_data_collection() methods as explained below. The data is stored as a ref hash with 3 levels: the first keys have as values a reference to another hash where keys are again associated with values being a reference to another hash where the content (keys and values) depends on the registry, the operation attempted, and the result.

Some data will always be there: a "session" first key, with a "exchange" subkey, will have a reference to an hash with the following keys:


the duration of the exchange with registry, in a floating point number of seconds


the message sent to the registry, as string


the message received from the registry, as string


either 0 or 1 if these results were retrieved from Net::DRI Cache object or not


name of the action that has been done to achieve these results (ex: "info")


name (or ID) of the object on which the action has been performed (not necessarily always defined)


type of object on which this operation has been done (ex: "domain")

registry, profile, transport, protocol

registry name, profile name, transport name+version, protocol name+version used for this exchange


transaction ID of this exchange



returns 1 if the operation was a success


returns the EPP code corresponding to the native code (which depends on the registry) for this operation (see RFC for full list and source of this file for local extensions)


gives the true status code we got back from registry (this breaks the encapsulation provided by Net::DRI, you should not use it if possible)


gives the message attached to the the status code we got back from registry


gives the language in which the message above is written


gives back an array with additionnal result information from registry, especially in case of errors. If no data, an empty array is returned.

This method was previously called info(), before Net::DRI version 0.92_01


See explanation of data stored in "DESCRIPTION". Can be called with one or three parameters and always returns a single value (or undef if failure).

With three parameters, it returns the value associated to the three keys/subkeys passed. Example: get_data("domain","","exist") will return 0 or 1 depending if the domain exists or not, after a domain check or domain info operation.

With only one parameter, it will verify there is only one branch (besides session/exchange and message/info), and if so returns the data associated to the parameter passed used as the third key. Otherwise will return undef.

Please note that the input API is not the same as the one used for $dri-get_info()>.

You should not try to modify the data returned in any way, but just read it.


See explanation of data stored in "DESCRIPTION". Can be called with either zero, one or two parameters and may return a list or a single value depending on calling context (and respectively an empty list or undef in case of failure).

With no parameter, it returns the whole data as reference to an hash with 2 levels beneath as explained in "DESCRIPTION" in scalar context, or the list of keys of this hash in list context.

With one parameter, it returns the hash referenced by the key given as argument at first level in scalar context, or the list of keys of this hash in list context.

With two parameters, it walks down two level of the hash using the two parameters as key and subkey and returns the bottom hash referenced in scalar context, or the list of keys of this hash in list context.

Please note that in all cases you are given references to the data itself, not copies. You should not try to modify it in any way, but just read it.


returns a string with all details, with the extended_results part if passed a true value


same as CORE::print($rs->as_string(0)) or CORE::print($rs->as_string(1)) if passed a true value


in scalar context, gives the transaction id (our transaction id, that is the client part in EPP) which has generated this result, in array context, gives the transaction id followed by other ids given by registry (example in EPP: server transaction id)


returns 1 if the operation was flagged as pending by registry (asynchronous handling)


returns 1 if the operation made the registry close the connection (should not happen often)


if you really need to test some other codes (this should not happen often), you can using symbolic names defined inside this module (see source). Going that way makes sure you are not hardcoding numbers in your application, and you do not need to import variables from this module to your application.
