#24 closed protocol defect (fixed)

Clarification about repeated options

Reported by: zach@… Owned by: zach@…
Priority: minor Milestone: coap-02
Component: coap Version:
Severity: - Keywords:


coap-01 did not specify whether an option can appear multiple times in a CoAP header. It was pointed out in Maastricht that coap-02 should clearly either allow or forbid repeated options. This ticket is to decide whether we should allow (and have any real use for) repeated options in coap-02.

Based on the list discussion, multiple options are not forbidden, but each option must describe if it can occur multiple times and the resulting meaning in that case. Current options in coap-02 can occur only once, with the possible exception of Etag (TBD).
