3.2.1 Abstract Data Model

This protocol shares the abstract data model used by the SharePoint Client Query protocol, as described in [MS-CSOM] section 3.1.1, to communicate with the protocol server.

This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This specification does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with that described in this specification.

This protocol deals with various structures associated with sites (2), lists, items, navigation, and other structures as specified in [MS-WSSTS].
