Child Resources for Non-CRUD Operations

The Enterprise Server REST interfaces also support operations other than create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations, for example:

These operations are supported through child resources of the resource on which the operation is performed. The child resources do not represent nodes in the configuration object tree.

For example, the resource for managing a domain provides child resources for non-CRUD operations as shown in the following table.
