Request processing

Microsoft Provisioning Framework (MPF) processes all requests it receives through either Delegated Administration Console or through XML generated by the user.

When a user performs an action in Delegated Administration Console, Delegated Administration Console submits an XML request to MPF. MPF parses the XML request and routes it to the appropriate namespace. The namespace then executes the procedures and the steps that are required to complete the requested action.

Processing MPF requests

If the request fails at any point, MPF and the providers implement failure handling. For more about this, see Failure handling.

The Microsoft Provisioning Framework Software Development Kit (SDK) contains additional resources and information about failure handling. For more information on the SDK and how to use it, see Microsoft Provisioning Framework SDK and documentation.
