Powerful technique to provide updates to RESTCONF servers

RESTCONF provides a standard RESTful API that vendors can implement to make it easy for customers to work with a uniform REST interface across all devices rather than a diverse set of vendor-defined proprietary REST interfaces.

One weakness of RESTCONF, as defined in RFC 8040, when compared with NETCONF, is in its inability to combine multiple different edit operations into a single operation and therefore a single transaction.

To remedy this, the IETF NETCONF Working Group created a new media type, the YANG Patch media type, which is used with the HTTP PATCH method.
