Provisioning Schema::errorDescription

Element that encapsulates an XML error description. This element is part of the provisioning schema of Microsoft Provisioning Framework (MPF).

The HTTP and SOAP Provider returns SOAP and HTTP errors in XML format. Whenever a provisioning engine receives an XML error, it generates an errorContext node and returns it to either the calling procedure or (for try-catch blocks) to the procedures in the catch node. The engine parses the code to extract the error description, then assigns this string to /errorContext/@description. It then executes an XSL transformation to translate the error nodes to corresponding child nodes of errorContext.
