  • remove: Removes existing properties that are defined in the XML file.

  • overwrite: Replaces the existing property values with the new values.

  • create: A new object is created from the XML description and processing continues.

  • error: The command fails with an error. (Default)

  • ignore: The new description is ignored and processing continues.
