#328 closed protocol enhancement (fixed)

Allow multicast POST under specific conditions

Reported by: esko.dijk@… Owned by: draft-ietf-core-groupcomm@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: groupcomm Version:
Severity: - Keywords:


Currently groupcomm-08 forbids use of multicast POST because it is a non-idempotent method used in an unreliable network situation without delivery guarantees. Text to be added that in specific conditions multicast POST would be allowed.

Example text: “Group communication MAY be used for non-idempotent methods (i.e., CoAP POST) if the resource being POSTed is designed to support the lossy nature of multicast. This is because not all group members are guaranteed to receive the multicast request, and the sender cannot readily find out which group members did not receive it.”
