RFC 8040, "RESTCONF Protocol", January 2017

Source of RFC: netconf (ops)

Errata ID: 5761
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 4.4.1 says:

If the data resource already exists, then the POST request MUST fail
and a "409 Conflict" status-line MUST be returned.  The error-tag
value "resource-denied" is used in this case

It should say:

If the data resource already exists, then the POST request MUST fail
and a "409 Conflict" status-line MUST be returned.  The error-tag 
value "data-exists" is used in this case

Notes:

The error-tag value should be corrected as "data-exists" in this case
based on the context. According to error-tag definition in RFC6241:

error-tag: resource-denied
error-type: transport, rpc, protocol, application
error-severity: error
error-info: none
Description: Request could not be completed because of
insufficient resources.

It is apparent error-tag value "data-exists" should be corresponding
to the data resource already exists condition.
