Check keygroup[Link]


to check the existence of a keygroup.

Specify one <keygroup:name> element for every keygroup that you want to check:

  • <keygroup:name> is required. Contains the name of the keygroup.

Many keygroup objects can be checked with a single check command.

Please refer to the examples to see a complete request.


A check keygroup command for 2 objects looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   <keygroup:check xmlns:keygroup="">

In case of success, the EPP server responds:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0" xmlns:keygroup="">
    <result code="1000">
      <msg>Command completed successfully</msg>
          <keygroup:name avail="false">mykeygroup</keygroup:name>
          <keygroup:name avail="true">otherkeygroup</keygroup:name>

The following information can be seen in the reply:

  • <keygroup:name> Contains the name of the keygroup that was checked. The ‘avail’ attribute contains a value of ‘false’ if the keygroup is not available, a value of ‘true’ if the keygroup is available, at the time of the check.

There is an entry in the command for each of the keygroups that were checked.
