1.  Introduction

   JMAP is a generic protocol for synchronising data, such as mail,
   calendars or contacts, between a client and a server.  It is
   optimised for mobile and web environments, and aims to provide a
   consistent interface to different data types.

   This specification is for the generic mechanism of data
   synchronisation.  Further specifications define the data models for
   different data types that may be synchronised via JMAP.

   JMAP is designed to make efficient use of limited network resources.
   Multiple API calls may be batched in a single request to the server,
   reducing round trips and improving battery life on mobile devices.
   Push connections remove the need for polling, and an efficient delta
   update mechanism ensures a minimum of data is transferred.

   JMAP is designed to be horizontally scalable to a very large number
   of users.  This is facilitated by the separate end points for users
   after login, the separation of binary and structured data, and a
   shared data model that does not allow data dependencies between
   accounts.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


1.1.  Notational conventions

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

   The underlying format used for this specification is JSON.
   Consequently, the terms "object" and "array" as well as the four
   primitive types (strings, numbers, booleans, and null) are to be
   interpreted as described in Section 1 of [RFC7159].  Unless otherwise
   noted, all the property names and values are case sensitive.

   Some examples in this document contain "partial" JSON documents used
   for illustrative purposes.  In these examples, three periods "..."
   are used to indicate a portion of the document that has been removed
   for compactness.

   Type signatures are given for all JSON objects in this document.  The
   following conventions are used:

   o  "Boolean|String" - The value is either a JSON "Boolean" value, or
      a JSON "String" value.

   o  "Foo" - Any name that is not a native JSON type means an object
      for which the properties (and their types) are defined elsewhere
      within this document.

   o  "Foo[]" - An array of objects of type "Foo".

   o  "String[Foo]" - A JSON "Object" being used as a map (associative
      array), where all the values are of type "Foo".

1.2.  The Number data type

   The JSON data types are limited to those found in JavaScript.  A
   "Number" in JavaScript is represented as a signed double (64-bit
   floating point).  However, except where explicitly specified, all
   numbers used in this API are unsigned integers <= 2^53 (the maximum
   integer that may be reliably stored in a double).

1.3.  The Date data types

   Where "Date" is given as a type, it means a string in [RFC3339]
   _date-time_ format.  To ensure a normalised form, the _time-secfrac_
   MUST always be omitted and any letters in the string (e.g.  "T" and
   "Z") MUST be upper-case.  For example, ""2014-10-30T14:12:00+08:00"".

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   Where "UTCDate" is given as a type, it means a "Date" where the
   _time-offset_ component MUST be "Z" (i.e. it must be in UTC time).
   For example, ""2014-10-30T06:12:00Z"".

1.4.  JSON as the data encoding format

   JSON is a text-based data interchange format as specified in
   [RFC7159].  The I-JSON format defined in [RFC7493] is a strict subset
   of this, adding restrictions to avoid potentially confusing scenarios
   (for example, it mandates that an object MUST NOT have two properties
   with the same key).

   All data sent from the client to the server or from the server to the
   client (except binary file upload/download) MUST be valid I-JSON
   according to the RFC, and is therefore case-sensitive and encoded in
   UTF-8 ([RFC3629]).

1.5.  Terminology

1.5.1.  User

   A user represents a set of permissions relating to what data can be
   seen.

1.5.2.  Accounts

   An account is a collection of data.  A single account may contain an
   arbitrary set of data types, for example a collection of mail,
   contacts and calendars.  Most operations in JMAP are isolated to a
   single account; there are a few explicit operations to copy data
   between them.  Certain properties are guaranteed for data within the
   same account, for example uniqueness of ids within a type in that
   account.

   An account is not the same as a user, although it is common for a
   primary account to directly belong to the user.  For example, you may
   have an account that contains data for a group or business, to which
   multiple users have access.  Users may also have access to accounts
   belonging to another user if that user is sharing some of their data.
   A single set of credentials may provide access to data in multiple
   accounts.

1.5.3.  Data types and records

   JMAP provides a uniform interface for creating, retrieving, updating
   and deleting various types of objects.  A *data type* is a collection
   of named, typed properties, just like the schema for a database
   table.  Each instance of a data type is called a *record*.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


1.6.  Ids

   All record ids are assigned by the server, and are immutable.  They
   MUST be unique among all records of the *same type* within the *same
   account*. Ids may clash across accounts, or for two records of
   different types within the same account.

   Ids are always "String"s.  An id MUST be at least 1 character in
   length and maximum 255 octets in size, and MUST only contain
   characters from the "URL and Filename safe" Base 64 Alphabet, as
   defined in section 5 of [RFC4648].  This is the ASCII alphanumeric
   characters ("A-Za-z0-9"), hyphen ("-"), and underscore ("_").

1.7.  The JMAP API model

   JMAP uses HTTP [RFC7230] to expose API, Push, Upload and Download
   resources.  Implementations MUST support HTTP/1.1, and MAY support
   later versions.  Support for common HTTP mechanisms such as
   redirection and caching are assumed.

   All HTTP requests MUST be authenticated.  Servers MUST conform with
   the [RFC7235] HTTP Authentication framework to reject requests that
   fail authentication and inform the client of available authentication
   schemes.

   Clients SHOULD understand and be able to handle standard HTTP status
   codes appropriately.

   An authenticated client can fetch the JMAP Session object with
   details about the data and capabilities the server can provide as
   shown in section 2.  The client may then exchange data with the
   server in the following ways:

   1.  The client may make an API request to the server to get or set
       structured data.  This request consists of an ordered series of
       method calls.  These are processed by the server, which then
       returns an ordered series of responses.  This is described in
       sections 3 and 4.

   2.  The client may download or upload binary files from/to the
       server.  This is detailed in section 5.

   3.  The client may connect to a push channel on the server, to be
       notified when data has changed.  This is explained in section 6.

2.  The JMAP Session resource

   You need two things to connect to a JMAP server:

   1.  The URL for the JMAP Session resource.  This may be requested
       directly from the user, or discovered automatically based on a
       username domain (see Service Autodiscovery section below).

   2.  Credentials to authenticate with.  How to obtain credentials is
       out of scope for this specification.

   An authenticated GET request to the JMAP Session resource MUST return
   the details about the data and capabilities the server can provide to
   the client given those credentials.

   The response to a successful request is a JSON-encoded *JMAP Session*
   object.  It has the following properties:

   o  *username*: "String" The username associated with the given
      credentials.

   o  *accounts*: "String[Account]" A map of *account id* to Account
      object for each account the user has access to.  A single set of
      credentials may provide access to multiple accounts, for example
      if another user is sharing their mail with the logged in user, or
      if there is an account that contains data for a group or business.
      All data belongs to a single account.  With the exception of a few
      explicit operations to copy data between accounts, all JMAP
      methods take an _accountId_ argument that specifies on which
      account the operations are to take place.  This argument is always
      optional; if not specified, the primary account for the capability
      that defines the data type is used.  (Though if there is no
      primary account for that capability, an "accountNotFound" error
      will be returned.)  All ids (other than account ids, of course)
      are only unique within their account.  In the event of a severe
      internal error, a server may have to reallocate ids or do
      something else that violates standard JMAP data constraints.  In
      this situation, the data on the server is no longer compatible
      with cached data the client may have from before.  The server MUST
      treat this as though the account has been deleted and then
      recreated with a new account id.  Clients will then be forced to
      throw away any data with the old account id and refetch all data
      from scratch.  An *Account* object has the following properties:

      *  *name*: "String" A user-friendly string to show when presenting
         content from this account, e.g. the email address representing
         the owner of the account.

      *  *isReadOnly*: "Boolean" This is "true" if the entire account is
         read-only.

      *  *hasDataFor*: "String[]" A list of specification URIs for the
         object types supported in this account.  The server advertises
         the list of specifications it supports in general in the
         capabilities object, as defined below.  If the specification
         includes new object type definitions, the server MUST include
         it the _hasDataFor_ array if, and only if, the user may use
         those data types with this account.  For example, you may have
         access to your own account with mail, calendars and contacts
         data, and also a shared account that only has contacts data (a
         business address book for example).  In this case the
         _hasDataFor_ property on the first account would include
         something like "urn:ietf:params:jmap:mail",
         "urn:ietf:params:jmap:calendars",
         "urn:ietf:params:jmap:contacts", while the second account would
         just have the last of these.  Attempts to use the methods
         defined in a specification with one of the accounts that does
         not contain those data types are rejected with an
         _accountNotSupportedByMethod_ error (see the Method-level
         errors section below).

   o  *primaryAccounts*: "String[String]" A map of capability URIs (as
      found in _hasDataFor_) to the account id to be considered the
      user's main or default account for data pertaining to that
      capability.  If no account being returned belongs to the user, or
      in any other way there is no appropriate way to determine a
      default account, there MAY be no entry for a particular data
      profile name. "urn:ietf:params:jmap:core" SHOULD NOT be present.

   o  *capabilities*: "String[Object]" An object specifying the
      capabilities of this server.  Each key is a URI for a
      specification supported by the server.  The value for each of
      these keys is an object with further information about the
      server's capabilities in relation to that specification.  The
      client MUST ignore any properties it does not understand.  The
      capabilities object MUST include a property called
      "urn:ietf:params:jmap:core".  The value of this property is an
      object which MUST contain the following information on server
      capabilities:

      *  *maxSizeUpload*: "Number" The maximum file size, in octets,
         that the server will accept for a single file upload (for any
         purpose).

      *  *maxConcurrentUpload*: "Number" The maximum number of
         concurrent requests the server will accept to the upload
         endpoint.

      *  *maxSizeRequest*: "Number" The maximum size, in octets, that
         the server will accept for a single request to the API
         endpoint.

      *  *maxConcurrentRequests*: "Number" The maximum number of
         concurrent requests the server will accept to the API endpoint.

      *  *maxCallsInRequest*: "Number" The maximum number of method
         calls the server will accept in a single request to the API
         endpoint.  This MUST be greater than or equal to "32" to ensure
         clients can rely on the ability to make efficient network use.

         the client may request in a single "/get" type method call.

      *  *maxObjectsInSet*: "Number" The maximum number of objects the
         client may send to create, update or destroy in a single "/set"
         type method call.

      *  *collationAlgorithms*: "String[]" A list of identifiers for
         algorithms registered in the collation registry defined in
         [RFC4790] that the server supports for sorting when querying
         records.

      Future specifications will define their own properties on the
      capabilities object.  Servers MAY advertise vendor-specific JMAP
      extensions.  To avoid conflict, the identifiers for these MUST be
      a URI beginning with a domain owned by the vendor.  Clients MUST
      opt in to any specifications it wishes to use (see "Making an API
      request").

   o  *apiUrl*: "String" The URL to use for JMAP API requests.

   o  *downloadUrl*: "String" The URL endpoint to use when downloading
      files (see the Download section of this spec), in [RFC6570] URI
      Template (level 1) format.  The URL MUST contain variables called
      "blobId", MAY contain a variables called "accountId" and SHOULD
      contain a variable called "name".

   o  *uploadUrl*: "String" The URL endpoint to use when uploading files
      (see the Upload section of this spec), in [RFC6570] URI Template
      (level 1) format.  The URL MAY contain a variable called
      "accountId".

2.2.  Service Autodiscovery

   There are two standardised autodiscovery methods in use for internet
   protocols:

   o  *DNS SRV* ([RFC2782], [RFC6186] and [RFC6764])

   o  *.well-known/servicename* ([RFC5785])

   A JMAP-supporting host for the domain "example.com" SHOULD publish a
   SRV record "_jmap._tcp.example.com" which gives a _hostname_ and
   _port_ (usually port "443").  The JMAP Session resource is then
   "https://${hostname}[:${port}]/.well-known/jmap" (following any
   redirects).

   If the client has a username in the form of an email address, it MAY
   use the domain portion of this to attempt autodiscovery of the JMAP
   server.

3.  Structured data exchange

   The client may make an API request to the server to get or set
   structured data.  This request consists of an ordered series of
   method calls.  These are processed by the server, which then returns
   an ordered series of responses.

3.1.  Making an API request

   To make an API request, the client makes an authenticated POST
   request to the API resource, which is defined by the _apiUrl_
   property in the JMAP Session object.

   The request MUST be of type "application/json" and consist of a
   single JSON *Request* object.  If successful, the response MUST also
   be of type "application/json" and consist of a single *Response*
   object.

3.2.  The Request object

   A *Request* object has the following properties:

   o  *using*: "String[]" The set of capabilities the client wishes to
      use.  The client MAY include capability identifiers even if the
      method calls it makes do not utilise those capabilities.  The
      server advertises the set of specifications it supports in the
      JMAP Session object, as keys on the _capabilities_ property.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   o  *methodCalls*: "Array[]" An array of method calls to process on
      the server.  The method calls MUST be processed sequentially, in
      order.  A *method call* is represented by an array containing
      three elements:

      1.  A "String" *name* of the method to call.

      2.  An "Object" containing _named_ *arguments* for that method.

      3.  A *client id*: an arbitrary "String" to be echoed back with
          the responses emitted by that method call (a method may return
          1 or more responses, as it may make implicit calls to other
          methods; all responses initiated by this method call get the
          same client id in the response).

   o  *createdIds*: "String[String]" (optional) A map of (client-
      specified) creation id to the id the server assigned when a record
      was successfully created.  As described later in this
      specification, some records may have a property that contains the
      id of another record.  To allow more efficient network usage, you
      can set this property to reference a record created earlier in the
      same API request.  Since the real id is unknown when the request
      is created, the client can instead specify the creation id it
      assigned, prefixed with a "#".  As the server processes API
      requests, any time it successfully creates a new record it adds to
      this map the creation id, with the server-assigned real id as the
      value.  If it comes across a reference to a creation id in a
      create/update, it looks it up in the map and replaces the
      reference with the real id, if found.  The client can pass an
      initial value for this map as the _createdIds_ property of the
      Request.  This MAY be an empty object.  If given in the request,
      the response will also include a createdIds property, with any
      additionally created ids added.  This allows proxy servers to
      easily split a JMAP request into multiple JMAP requests to send to
      different servers.  For example it could send the first two method
      calls to server A, then the third to server B, before sending the
      fourth to server A again.  By passing the createdIds of the
      previous response to the next request, it can ensure all of these
      still resolve.

   Future specifications MAY add further properties to the Request
   object to extend the semantics.  To ensure forwards compatibility, a
   server MUST ignore any other properties it does not understand on the
   JMAP request object.

3.2.1.  Example request

{
  "using": [ "urn:ietf:params:jmap:core", "urn:ietf:params:jmap:mail" ],
  "methodCalls": [
    ["method1", {"arg1": "arg1data", "arg2": "arg2data"}, "c1"],
    ["method2", {"arg1": "arg1data"}, "c2"],
    ["method3", {}, "c3"]
  ]
}

3.3.  Vendor-specific extensions

   Individual services will have custom features they wish to expose
   over JMAP.  This may take the form of extra data types and/or methods
   not in the spec, or extra arguments to JMAP methods, or extra
   properties on existing data types (which may also appear in arguments
   to methods that take property names).

   The server can advertise custom extensions it supports by including
   the identifiers in the capabilities object.  Identifiers for vendor
   extensions MUST be a URL belonging to a domain owned by the vendor,
   to avoid conflict.  The URL SHOULD resolve to documentation for the
   changes the extension makes.

   To ensure compatibility with clients that don't know about a specific
   custom extension, and for compatibility with future versions of JMAP,
   to use an extension the client MUST opt in by passing the appropriate
   capability identifier in the _using_ array of the Request object.
   The server MUST only follow the specifications that are opted-into
   and behave as though it does not implement anything else when
   processing a request.

3.4.  The Response object

   A *Response* object has the following properties:

   o  *methodResponses*: "Array[]" An array of responses, in the same
      format as the _methodCalls_ on the request object.  The output of
      the methods MUST be added to the _methodResponses_ array in the
      same order as the methods are processed.

   o  *createdIds*: "String[String]" (optional; only returned if given
      in request) A map of (client-specified) creation id to the id the
      server assigned when a record was successfully created.  This
      includes all values passed in the request, as well as any
      additional ones added for newly created records.

   Unless otherwise specified, if the method call completed successfully
   its response name is the same as the method name in the request.

3.4.1.  Example response:

            {
              "methodResponses": [
                ["method1", {"arg1": 3, "arg2": "foo"}, "c1"],
                ["method2", {"isBlah": true}, "c2"],
                ["anotherResponseFromMethod2", {
                  "data": 10,
                  "yetmoredata": "Hello"
                }, "c2"],
                ["error", {"type":"unknownMethod"}, "c3"]
              ]
            }

3.5.  Omitting arguments

   An argument to a method may be specified to have a default value.  If
   omitted by the client, the server MUST treat the method call the same
   as if the default value had been specified.  Similarly, the server
   MAY omit any argument in a response which has the default value.

   Unless otherwise specified in a method description, "null" is the
   default value for any argument in a request or response where this is
   allowed by the type signature.  Other arguments may only be omitted
   if an explicit default value is defined in the method description.

3.6.  Errors

3.6.1.  Error responses

   When an HTTP error response is returned to the client, the server
   SHOULD return a JSON "problem details" object in the response body,
   as per [RFC7807].  Every JSON "problem details" object MUST include a
   "type" member with a URI either one of the following values, or a
   value defined in a future RFC, or a value beginning with a domain
   owned by the vendor.

   o  "urn:ietf:params:jmap:error:unknowncapability" The client included
      a capability in the "using" property of the request that the
      server does not support.

   o  "urn:ietf:params:jmap:error:notjson" The content type of the
      request was not "application/json" or the request did not parse as
      I-JSON.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   o  "urn:ietf:params:jmap:error:notrequest" The request parsed as JSON
      but did not match the structure of the Request object.

3.6.2.  Method-level errors

   If a method encounters an error, the appropriate "error" response
   MUST be inserted at the current point in the _methodResponses_ array
   and, unless otherwise specified, further processing MUST NOT happen
   within that method call.

   Any further method calls in the request MUST then be processed as
   normal.  Errors at the method level MUST NOT generate an HTTP-level
   error.

   An "error" response looks like this:

                         ["error", {
                           "type": "unknownMethod"
                         }, "client-id"]

   The response name is "error", and it MUST have a type property.
   Other properties may be present with further information; these are
   detailed in the error type descriptions where appropriate.

   With the exception of "serverPartialFail", the externally-visible
   state of the server MUST NOT have changed if an error is returned at
   the method level.

   The following error types are defined which may be returned for any
   method call where appropriate:

   "serverUnavailable": Some internal server resource was temporarily
   unavailable.  Attempting the same operation later (perhaps after a
   backoff with a random factor) may succeed.

   "serverFail": An unexpected or unknown error occurred during the
   processing of the call.  A _description_ property should provide more
   details about the error.  The method call made no changes to the
   server's state.  Attempting the same operation again is expected to
   fail again.  Contacting the service administrator is likely necessary
   to resolve this problem if it is persistent.

   "serverPartialFail": Some, but not all expected changes described by
   the method occurred.  The client MUST re-synchronise impacted data to
   determine server state.  Use of this error is strongly discouraged.

   "unknownMethod": The server does not recognise this method name.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   "invalidArguments": One of the arguments is of the wrong type or
   otherwise invalid, or a required argument is missing.  A
   "description" property MAY be present to help debug with an
   explanation of what the problem was.  This is a non-localised string,
   and is not intended to be shown directly to end users.

   "forbidden": The method and arguments are valid, but executing the
   method would violate an ACL or other permissions policy.

   "accountNotFound": An _accountId_ was included with the method call
   that does not correspond to a valid account, or _accountId_ was null
   but there is no primary account for the capability that defines the
   data type.

   "accountNotSupportedByMethod": An _accountId_ given corresponds to a
   valid account, but the account does not support this data type.

   "accountReadOnly": This method call would modify state in an account
   that has "isReadOnly == true".

   Further possible errors for a particular method are specified in the
   method descriptions.

   Further general errors MAY be defined in future RFCs.  Should a
   client receive an error type it does not understand, it MUST treat it
   the same as the "serverFail" type.

3.7.  References to previous method results

   To allow clients to make more efficient use of the network and avoid
   round trips, an argument to one method can be taken from the result
   of a previous method call.

   To do this, the client prefixes the argument name with "#".  The
   value is a _ResultReference_ object as described below.  When
   processing a method call, the server MUST first check the arguments
   object for any names beginning with "#".  If found, the back
   reference should be resolved and the value used as the "real"
   argument.  The method is then processed as normal.  If any back
   reference fails to resolve, the whole method MUST be rejected with a
   "resultReference" error.  If an argument object contains the same
   argument name in normal and referenced form (e.g. "foo" and "#foo"),
   the method MUST return an "invalidArguments" error.

   A *ResultReference* object has the following properties:






Jenkins                  Expires January 3, 2019               [Page 17]


Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   o  *resultOf*: "String" The client id of the method call to get the
      result from (the string given as the third item in the array for a
      method call).

   o  *name*: "String" The expected name of the response.

   o  *path*: "String" A pointer into the arguments.  This is an
      [RFC6901] JSON Pointer, except it also allows the use of "*" to
      map through an array (see description below).

   To resolve:

   1.  Find the first response with a client id identical to the
       _resultOf_ property of the _ResultReference_ in the
       _methodResponses_ array from previously processed method calls in
       the same request.  If none, evaluation fails.

   2.  If the response name is not identical to the _name_ property of
       the _ResultReference_, evaluation fails.

   3.  Apply the _path_ to the arguments object of the response (the
       second item in the response array) following the [RFC6901] JSON
       Pointer algorithm, except with the following addition in
       Section 4 (Evaluation):

   If the currently referenced value is a JSON array, the reference
   token may be exactly the single character "*", making the new
   referenced value the result of applying the rest of the JSON pointer
   tokens to every item in the array and returning the results in the
   same order in a new array.  If the result of applying the rest of the
   pointer tokens to a value was itself an array, its items should be
   included individually in the output rather than including the array
   itself (i.e. the result is flattened from an array of arrays to a
   single array).

   As a simple example, suppose we have the following API request
   _methodCalls_:

                      [[ "Foo/changes", {
                          "sinceState": "abcdef"
                      }, "t0" ],
                      [ "Foo/get", {
                          "#ids": {
                              "resultOf": "t0",
                              "name": "Foo/changes",
                              "path": "/created"
                          }
                      }, "t1" ]]

   After executing the first method call the _methodResponses_ array is:

                      [[ "Foo/changes", {
                          "accountId": "1",
                          "oldState": "abcdef",
                          "newState": "123456",
                          "hasMoreChanges": false,
                          "created": [ "f1", "f4" ],
                          "updated": [],
                          "destroyed": []
                      }, "t0" ]]

   So to execute the Foo/get call, we look through the arguments and
   find there is one with a "#" prefix.  To resolve this, we apply the
   algorithm above:

   1.  Find the first response with client id "t0".  The Foo/changes
       response fulfils this criterion.

   2.  Check the response name is the same as in the result reference.
       It is, so this is fine.

   3.  Apply the _path_ as a JSON pointer to the arguments object.  This
       simply selects the "created" property, so the result of
       evaluating is: "[ "f1", "f4" ]"

   The JMAP server now continues to process the Foo/get call as though
   the arguments were:

                         {
                             "ids": [ "f1", "f4" ]
                         }

   Now a more complicated example using the JMAP Mail data model: fetch
   the "from"/"date"/"subject" for every email in the first 10 threads
   in the Inbox (sorted newest first):

   After executing the first 3 method calls the _methodResponses_ array

[[ "Email/query", {
    "accountId": "1",
    "filter": { "inMailbox": "id_of_inbox" },
    "sort": [{ "property": "receivedAt", "isAscending": false }],
    "collapseThreads": true,
    "queryState": "abcdefg",
    "canCalculateChanges": true,
    "position": 0,
    "total": 101,
    "ids": [ "msg1023", "msg223", "msg110", "msg93", "msg91", "msg38", "msg36", "msg33", "msg11", "msg1" ]
}, "t0" ],
[ "Email/get", {
    "accountId": "1",
    "state": "123456",
    "list": [{
        "id": "msg1023",
        "threadId": "trd194",
    }, {
        "id": "msg223",
        "threadId": "trd114"
    },
    ...
    ],
    "notFound": []
}, "t1" ],
[ "Thread/get", {
    "accountId": "1",
    "state": "123456",
    "list": [{
        "id: "trd194",

}, "t2" ]]

   So to execute the final Email/get call, we look through the arguments
   and find there is one with a "#" prefix.  To resolve this, we apply
   the algorithm:

   1.  Find the first response with client id "t2".  The "Thread/get"
       response fulfils this criterion.

   2.  "Thread/get" is the name specified in the result reference, so
       this is fine.

   3.  Apply the _path_ as a JSON pointer to the arguments object.
       Token-by-token: a) "list": get the array of thread objects b)
       "*": for each of the items in the array:

 i) `emailIds`: get the array of email ids
 ii) Concatenate these into a single array of all the ids in the result.

   The JMAP server now continues to process the Email/get call as though
   the arguments were:

{
    "ids": [ "msg1020", "msg1021", "msg1023", "msg201", "msg223", ... ],
    "properties": [ "from", "receivedAt", "subject" ]
}

3.8.  Security

   As always, the server must be strict about data received from the
   client.  Arguments need to be checked for validity; a malicious user
   could attempt to find an exploit through the API.  In case of invalid
   arguments (unknown/insufficient/wrong type for data etc.) the method
   MUST return an "invalidArguments" error and terminate.

3.9.  Concurrency

   Method calls within a single request MUST be executed in order.
   However, method calls from different concurrent API requests may be
   interleaved.  This means that the data on the server may change
   between two method calls within a single API request.

4.  Standard methods and naming convention

   JMAP provides a uniform interface for creating, retrieving, updating
   and deleting objects of a particular type.  For a "Foo" data type,
   records of that type would be fetched via a Foo/get call and modified
   via a Foo/set call.  Delta updates may be fetched via a Foo/changes
   call.  These methods all follow a standard format as described below.

4.1.  /get

   Objects of type *Foo* are fetched via a call to _Foo/get_.

   It takes the following arguments:





Jenkins                  Expires January 3, 2019               [Page 22]


Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   o  *accountId*: "String|null" The id of the Account to use.  If
      "null", the primary account for the capability that defines the
      data type is used.

   o  *ids*: "String[]|null" The ids of the Foo objects to return.  If
      "null" then *all* records of the data type are returned, if this
      is supported for that data type.

   o  *properties*: "String[]|null" If supplied, only the properties
      listed in the array are returned for each Foo object.  If "null",
      all properties of the object are returned.  The id of the object
      is *always* returned, even if not explicitly requested.  If an
      invalid property is requested, the call MUST be rejected with an
      "invalidArguments" error.

   The response has the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String" The id of the account used for the call.

   o  *state*: "String" A string representing the state on the server
      for *all* the data of this type in the account (not just the
      objects returned in this call).  If the data changes, this string
      MUST change.  If the Foo data is unchanged, servers SHOULD return
      the same state string on subsequent requests for this data type.
      When a client receives a response with a different state string to
      a previous call, it MUST either throw away all currently cached
      objects for the type, or call _Foo/changes_ to get the exact
      changes.

   o  *list*: "Foo[]" An array of the Foo objects requested.  This is
      the *empty array* if no objects were found, or if the _ids_
      argument passed in was also the empty array.  The results MAY be
      in a different order to the _ids_ in the request arguments.  If an
      identical id is included more than once in the request, the server
      MUST only include it once in either the _list_ or _notFound_
      argument of the response.

   o  *notFound*: "String[]" This array contains the ids passed to the
      method for records that do not exist.  The array is empty if all
      requested ids were found, or if the _ids_ argument passed in was
      either "null" or the empty array.

   The following additional error may be returned instead of the _Foo/
   get_ response:

   "requestTooLarge": The number of _ids_ requested by the client
   exceeds the maximum number the server is willing to process in a
   single method call.

4.2.  /changes

   When the state of the set of Foo records changes on the server
   (whether due to creation, updates or deletion), the _state_ property
   of the _Foo/get_ response will change.  The _Foo/changes_ method
   allows a client to efficiently update the state of its Foo cache to
   match the new state on the server.  It takes the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String|null" The id of the Account to use.  If
      "null", the primary account for the capability that defines the
      data type is used.

   o  *sinceState*: "String" The current state of the client.  This is
      the string that was returned as the _state_ argument in the _Foo/
      get_ response.  The server will return the changes that have
      occurred since this state.

   o  *maxChanges*: "Number|null" The maximum number of ids to return in
      the response.  The server MAY choose to return fewer than this
      value, but MUST NOT return more.  If not given by the client, the
      server may choose how many to return.  If supplied by the client,
      the value MUST be a positive integer greater than 0.  If a value
      outside of this range is given, the server MUST reject the call
      with an "invalidArguments" error.

   The response has the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String" The id of the account used for the call.

   o  *oldState*: "String" This is the _sinceState_ argument echoed
      back; the state from which the server is returning changes.

   o  *newState*: "String" This is the state the client will be in after
      applying the set of changes to the old state.

   o  *hasMoreChanges*: "Boolean" If "true", the client may call _Foo/
      changes_ again with the _newState_ returned to get further
      updates.  If "false", _newState_ is the current server state.

   o  *created*: "String[]" An array of ids for records which have been
      created since the old state.

   o  *updated*: "String[]" An array of ids for records which have been
      updated since the old state.

   o  *destroyed*: "String[]" An array of ids for records which have
      been destroyed since the old state.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   If a _maxChanges_ is supplied, or set automatically by the server,
   the server MUST ensure the number of ids returned across _created_,
   _updated_ and _destroyed_ does not exceed this limit.  If there are
   more changes than this between the client's state and the current
   server state, the update returned SHOULD generate an update to take
   the client to an intermediate state, from which the client can
   continue to call _Foo/changes_ until it is fully up to date.  If it
   is unable to calculate an intermediate state, it MUST return a
   "cannotCalculateChanges" error response instead.

   If a Foo record has been created AND destroyed since the old state,
   the server SHOULD remove the id from the response entirely, but MAY
   include it in the _destroyed_ list, and if so MAY also include it in
   the _created_ list.

   If a Foo record has been updated AND destroyed since the old state,
   the server SHOULD just return the id in the _destroyed_ list, but MAY
   return it in the _updated_ list as well.

   The following additional errors may be returned instead of the _Foo/
   changes_ response:

   "cannotCalculateChanges": The server cannot calculate the changes
   from the state string given by the client.  Usually due to the
   client's state being too old, or the server being unable to produce
   an update to an intermediate state when there are too many updates.
   The client MUST invalidate its Foo cache.

   Maintaining state to allow calculation of _Foo/changes_ can be
   expensive for the server, but always returning
   _cannotCalculateChanges_ severely increases network traffic and
   resource usage for the client.  To allow efficient sync, servers
   SHOULD be able to calculate changes from any state string that was
   given to a client within the last 30 days (but of course may support
   calculating updates from states older than this).

4.3.  /set

   Modifying the state of Foo objects on the server is done via the
   _Foo/set_ method.  This encompasses creating, updating and destroying
   Foo records.  This allows the server to sort out ordering and
   dependencies that may exist if doing multiple operations at once (for
   example to ensure there is always a minimum number of a certain
   record type).

   The _Foo/set_ method takes the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String|null" The id of the Account to use.  If
      "null", the primary account for the capability that defines the
      data type is used.

   o  *ifInState*: "String|null" This is a state string as returned by
      the _Foo/get_ method.  If supplied, the string must match the
      current state, otherwise the method will be aborted and a
      "stateMismatch" error returned.  If "null", any changes will be
      applied to the current state.

   o  *create*: "String[Foo]|null" A map of _creation id_ (an arbitrary
      string set by the client) to Foo objects, or "null" if no objects
      are to be created.  The Foo object type definition MAY define
      default values for properties.  Any such property MAY be omitted
      by the client.  The client MUST omit any properties that may only
      be set by the server (for example, the _id_ property on most
      object types).

   o  *update*: "String[PatchObject]|null" A map of id to a Patch object
      to apply to the current Foo object with that id, or "null" if no
      objects are to be updated.  A _PatchObject_ is of type
      "String[*]", and represents an unordered set of patches.  The keys
      are a path in [RFC6901] JSON pointer format, with an implicit
      leading "/" (i.e. prefix each key with "/" before applying the
      JSON pointer evaluation algorithm).  All paths MUST also conform
      to the following restrictions; if there is any violation, the
      update MUST be rejected with an "invalidPatch" error:

      *  The pointer MUST NOT reference inside an array (i.e. you MUST
         NOT insert/delete from an array; the array MUST be replaced in
         its entirety instead).

      *  All parts prior to the last (i.e. the value after the final
         slash) MUST already exist on the object being patched.

      *  There MUST NOT be two patches in the PatchObject where the
         pointer of one is the prefix of the pointer of the other, e.g.
         "alerts/1/offset" and "alerts".

      The value associated with each pointer determines how to apply
      that patch:

      *  If "null", set to the default value if specified for this
         property, otherwise remove the property from the patched
         object.  If the key is not present in the parent, this a no-op.

      *  Anything else: The value to set for this property (this may be
         a replacement or addition to the object being patched).

      Any server-set properties MAY be included in the patch if their
      value is identical to the current server value (before applying
      the patches to the object).  Otherwise, the update MUST be
      rejected with an _invalidProperties_ SetError.  This patch
      definition is designed such that an entire Foo object is also a
      valid PatchObject.  The client MAY choose to optimise network
      usage by just sending the diff, or MAY just send the whole object;
      the server processes it the same either way.

   o  *destroy*: "String[]|null" A list of ids for Foo objects to
      permanently delete, or "null" if no objects are to be destroyed.

   Each creation, modification or destruction of an object is considered
   an atomic unit.  It is permissible for the server to commit changes
   to some objects but not others, however it is not permissible to only
   commit part of an update to a single record (e.g. update a _name_
   property but not a _count_ property, if both are supplied in the
   update object).

   The final state MUST be valid after the Foo/set is finished, however
   the server may have to transition through invalid intermediate states
   (not exposed to the client) while processing the individual
   create/update/destroy requests.  For example, suppose there is a
   "name" property that must be unique.  A single method call could
   rename an object A => B, and simultaneously rename another object B
   => A.  If the final state is valid, this is allowed.  Otherwise, each
   creation, modification or destruction of an object should be
   processed sequentially and accepted/rejected based on the current
   server state.

   If a create, update or destroy is rejected, the appropriate error
   MUST be added to the notCreated/notUpdated/notDestroyed property of
   the response and the server MUST continue to the next create/update/
   destroy.  It does not terminate the method.

   If an id given cannot be found, the update or destroy MUST be
   rejected with a "notFound" set error.

   The server MAY skip an update (rejecting it with a "willDestroy"
   SetError) if that object is destroyed in the same /set request.

   Some record objects may hold references to others (foreign keys).
   When records are created or modified, they may reference other
   records being created _in the same API request_ by using the creation
   id prefixed with a "#".  The order of the method calls in the request
   by the client MUST be such that the record being referenced is
   created in the same or an earlier call.  The server thus never has to
   look ahead.  Instead, while processing a request (a series of method

   calls), the server MUST keep a simple map for the duration of the
   request of creation id to record id for each newly created record, so
   it can substitute in the correct value if necessary in later method
   calls.

   Creation ids are not scoped by type but are a single map for all
   types.  A client SHOULD NOT reuse a creation id anywhere in the same
   API request.  If a creation id is reused, the server MUST map the
   creation id to the most recently created item with that id.  To allow
   easy proxying of API requests, an initial set of creation id to real
   id values may be passed with a request (see The Request object
   specification above).

   The response has the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String" The id of the account used for the call.

   o  *oldState*: "String|null" The state string that would have been
      returned by _Foo/get_ before making the requested changes, or
      "null" if the server doesn't know what the previous state string
      was.

   o  *newState*: "String" The state string that will now be returned by
      _Foo/get_.

   o  *created*: "String[Foo]|null" A map of the creation id to an
      object containing any properties of the created Foo object that
      were not sent by the client.  This includes all server-set
      properties (such as the _id_ in most object types) and any
      properties that were omitted by the client and so set to a default
      by the server.  This argument is "null" if no Foo objects were
      successfully created.

   o  *updated*: "String[Foo|null]|null" The _keys_ in this map are the
      ids of all Foos that were successfully updated, or "null" if none
      successful.  The _value_ for each id is a Foo object containing
      any property that changed in a way _not_ explicitly requested by
      the _PatchObject_ sent to the server, or "null" if none.  This
      lets the client know of any changes to server-set or computed
      properties.

   o  *destroyed*: "String[]|null" A list of Foo ids for records that
      were successfully destroyed, or "null" if none successful.

   o  *notCreated*: "String[SetError]|null" A map of creation id to a
      SetError object for each record that failed to be created, or
      "null" if all successful.

   o  *notUpdated*: "String[SetError]|null" A map of Foo id to a
      SetError object for each record that failed to be updated, or
      "null" if all successful.

   o  *notDestroyed*: "String[SetError]|null" A map of Foo id to a
      SetError object for each record that failed to be destroyed, or
      "null" if all successful.

   A *SetError* object has the following properties:

   o  *type*: "String" The type of error.

   o  *description*: "String|null" A description of the error to help
      debug with an explanation of what the problem was. This is a non-
      localised string, and is not intended to be shown directly to end
      users.

   The following SetError types are defined and may be returned for set
   operations on any record type where appropriate:

   o  "forbidden": (create; update; destroy) The create/update/destroy
      would violate an ACL or other permissions policy.

   o  "overQuota": (create) The create would exceed a server-defined
      limit on the number or total size of objects of this type.

   o  "rateLimit": (create) Too many objects of this type have been
      created recently, and a server-defined rate limit has been
      reached.  It may work if tried again later.

   o  "notFound": (update; destroy) The id given cannot be found.

   o  "invalidPatch": (update) The PatchObject given to update the
      record was not a valid patch (see the patch description).

   o  "willDestroy" (update) The client requested an object be both
      updated and destroyed in the same /set request, and the server has
      decided to therefore ignore the update.

   o  "invalidProperties": (create; update) The record given is invalid
      in some way.  For example:

      *  It contains properties which are invalid according to the type
         specification of this record type.

      *  It contains a property that may only be set by the server (e.g.
         "id") and are different to the current value.  Note, to allow
         clients to pass whole objects back, it is not an error to

         include a server-set property so long as the value is identical
         to the current value on the server (or the value that will be
         set by the server if a create).

      *  There is a reference to another record (foreign key) and the
         given id does not correspond to a valid record.

      The SetError object SHOULD also have a property called
      _properties_ of type "String[]" that lists *all* the properties
      that were invalid.  Individual methods MAY specify more specific
      errors for certain conditions that would otherwise result in an
      invalidProperties error.  If the condition of one of these is met,
      it MUST be returned instead of the invalidProperties error.

   o  "singleton": (create; destroy) This is a singleton type, so you
      cannot create another one or destroy the existing one.

   Other possible SetError types MAY be given in specific method
   descriptions.  Other properties MAY also be present on the _SetError_
   object, as described in the relevant methods.

   The following additional errors may be returned instead of the _Foo/
   set_ response:

   "requestTooLarge": The total number of objects to create, update or
   destroy exceeds the maximum number the server is willing to process
   in a single method call.

   "stateMismatch": An "ifInState" argument was supplied and it does not
   match the current state.

4.4.  /query

   For data sets where the total amount of data is expected to be very
   small, clients can just fetch the complete set of data and then do
   any sorting/filtering locally.  However, for large data sets (e.g.
   multi-gigabyte mailboxes), the client needs to be able to
   search/sort/window the data type on the server.

   A query on the set of Foos in an account is made by calling _Foo/
   query_. This takes a number of arguments to determine which records
   to include, how they should be sorted, and which part of the result
   should be returned (the full list may be _very_ long).  The result is
   returned as a list of Foo ids.

   A call to _Foo/query_ takes the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String|null" The id of the Account to use.  If
      "null", the primary account for the capability that defines the
      data type is used.

   o  *filter*: "FilterOperator|FilterCondition|null" Determines the set
      of Foos returned in the results.  If "null", all objects in the
      account of this type are included in the results.  A
      *FilterOperator* object has the following properties:

      *  *operator*: "String" This MUST be one of the following strings:
         "AND"/"OR"/"NOT":

         +  *AND*: all of the conditions must match for the filter to
            match.

         +  *OR*: at least one of the conditions must match for the
            filter to match.

         +  *NOT*: none of the conditions must match for the filter to
            match.

      *  *conditions*: "(FilterOperator|FilterCondition)[]" The
         conditions to evaluate against each email.

      A *FilterCondition* is an "object", whose allowed properties and
      semantics depend on the data type and is defined in the _/query_
      method specification for that type.

   o  *sort*: "Comparator[]|null" Lists the names of properties to
      compare between two Foo records, and how to compare them, to
      determine which comes first in the sort.  If two Foo records have
      an identical value for the first comparator, the next comparator
      will be considered and so on.  If all comparators are the same
      (this includes the case where an empty array or "null" is given as
      the _sort_ argument), the sort order is server-dependent, but MUST
      be stable between calls to Foo/query.  A *Comparator* has the
      following properties:

      *  *property*: "String" The name of the property on the Foo
         objects to compare.

      *  *isAscending*: "Boolean" (optional; default: "true") If true,
         sort in ascending order.  If false, reverse the comparator's
         results to sort in descending order.

      *  *collation*: "String" (optional; default is server-dependent)
         The identifier, as registered in the collation registry defined
         in [RFC4790], for the algorithm to use when comparing the order

         of strings.  The algorithms the server supports are advertised
         in the capabilities object returned with the JMAP Session
         object.  If omitted, the default algorithm is server-dependent,
         but:

         1.  It MUST be unicode-aware.

         2.  It SHOULD have reasonable default behavior for many
             languages when the user's language is unknown.

         3.  It MAY be selected based on out-of-band information about
             the user's language/locale.

         4.  It SHOULD be case-insensitive where such a concept makes
             sense for a language/locale.

         The "i;unicode-casemap" collation ([RFC5051]) and the Unicode
         Collation Algorithm (<http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr10/>)
         are two examples that fulfil these criterion.  When the
         property being compared is not a string, the _collation_
         property is ignored and the following comparison rules apply
         based on the type.  In ascending order:

         +  "Boolean": "false" comes before "true".

         +  "Number": A lower number comes before a higher number.

         +  "Date"/"UTCDate": The earlier date comes first.

   o  *position*: "Number" (default: "0") The 0-based index of the first
      id in the full list of results to return.  If a negative value is
      given, it is an offset from the end of the list.  Specifically,
      the negative value MUST be added to the total number of results
      given the filter, and if still negative clamped to "0".  This is
      now the 0-based index of the first id to return.  If the index is
      greater than or equal to the total number of objects in the
      results list then the _ids_ array in the response will be empty,
      but this is not an error.

   o  *anchor*: "String|null" A Foo id.  If supplied the _position_
      argument is ignored.  The index of this id in the results will be
      used in combination with the "anchorOffset" argument to determine
      the index of the first result to return (see below for more
      details).

   o  *anchorOffset*: "Number|null" The index of the first result to
      return relative to the index of the anchor.  This MAY be negative.
      For example, "-1" means the first Foo before the anchor Foo should

      be the first result in the results returned (see below for more
      details).

   o  *limit*: "Number|null" The maximum number of results to return.
      If "null", no limit presumed.  The server MAY choose to enforce a
      maximum "limit" argument.  In this case, if a greater value is
      given (or if it is "null"), the limit should be clamped to the
      maximum; since the total number of results in the query is
      returned, the client can determine if it has received all the
      results.  If a negative value is given, the call MUST be rejected
      with an "invalidArguments" error.

   If an *anchor* argument is given, then after filtering and sorting
   the anchor is looked for in the results.  If found, the *anchor
   offset* is then added to its index.  If the resulting index is now
   negative, it is clamped to 0.  This index is now used exactly as
   though it were supplied as the "position" argument.  If the anchor is
   not found, the call is rejected with an "anchorNotFound" error.

   If an _anchor_ is specified, any position argument supplied by the
   client MUST be ignored.  If _anchorOffset_ is "null", it defaults to
   "0".  If no _anchor_ is supplied, any anchor offset argument MUST be
   ignored.

   A client can use _anchor_ instead of _position_ to find the index of
   an id within a large set of results.

   The response has the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String" The id of the account used for the call.

   o  *filter*: "FilterOperator|FilterCondition|null" The filter used.
      Echoed back from the call.

   o  *sort*: "Comparator[]|null" The sort options used.  Echoed back
      from the call.

   o  *queryState*: "String" A string encoding the current state of the
      query on the server.  This string MUST change if the results of
      the query (i.e. the matching ids and their sort order) have
      changed.  The queryState string MAY change if something has
      changed on the server which means the results may have changed but
      the server doesn't know for sure.  The queryState string only
      represents the ordered list of ids that match the particular query
      (including its sort/filter).  There is no requirement for it to
      change if a property on an object matching the query changes but
      the query results are unaffected (indeed, it is more efficient if
      the queryState string does not change in this case).  The

      queryState string only has meaning when compared to future
      responses to a query with the same type/sort/filter, or when used
      with /queryChanges to fetch changes.  Should a client receive back
      a response with a different queryState string to a previous call,
      it MUST either throw away the currently cached query and fetch it
      again (note, this does not require fetching the records again,
      just the list of ids) or, call _Foo/queryChanges_ to get the
      difference.

   o  *canCalculateChanges*: "Boolean" This is "true" if the server
      supports calling _Foo/queryChanges_ with these "filter"/"sort"
      parameters.  Note, this does not guarantee that the _Foo/
      queryChanges_ call will succeed, as it may only be possible for a
      limited time afterwards due to server internal implementation
      details.

   o  *position*: "Number" The 0-based index of the first result in the
      "ids" array within the complete list of query results.

   o  *total*: "Number" The total number of foos in the results (given
      the _filter_).

   o  *ids*: "String[]" The list of ids for each foo in the query
      results, starting at the index given by the _position_ argument of
      this response, and continuing until it hits the end of the results
      or reaches the "limit" number of ids.  If _position_ is >=
      _total_, this MUST be the empty list.

   The following additional errors may be returned instead of the _Foo/
   query_ response:

   "anchorNotFound": An anchor argument was supplied, but it cannot be
   found in the results of the query.

   "unsupportedSort": The _sort_ is syntactically valid, but includes a
   property the server does not support sorting on, or a collation
   method it does not recognise.

   "unsupportedFilter": The _filter_ is syntactically valid, but the
   server cannot process it.

4.5.  /queryChanges

   The "Foo/queryChanges" call allows a client to efficiently update the
   state of any cached foo query to match the new state on the server.
   It takes the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String|null" The id of the account to use.  If
      "null", the primary account for the capability that defines the
      data type will be used.

   o  *filter*: "FilterOperator|FilterCondition|null" The filter
      argument that was used with _Foo/query_.

   o  *sort*: "Comparator[]|null" The sort argument that was used with
      _Foo/query_.

   o  *sinceQueryState*: "String" The current state of the query in the
      client.  This is the string that was returned as the _queryState_
      argument in the _Foo/query_ response with the same sort/filter.
      The server will return the changes made to the query since this
      state.

   o  *maxChanges*: "Number|null" The maximum number of changes to
      return in the response.  See error descriptions below for more
      details.

   o  *upToId*: "String|null" The last (highest-index) id the client
      currently has cached from the query results.  When there are a
      large number of results, in a common case the client may have only
      downloaded and cached a small subset from the beginning of the
      results.  If the sort and filter are both only on immutable
      properties, this allows the server to omit changes after this
      point in the results, which can significantly increase efficiency.
      If they are not immutable, this argument is ignored.

   The response has the following arguments:

   o  *accountId*: "String" The id of the account used for the call.

   o  *filter*: "FilterOperator|FilterCondition|null" The filter used.
      Echoed back from the call.

   o  *sort*: "Comparator[]|null" The sort options used.  Echoed back
      from the call.

   o  *oldQueryState*: "String" This is the "sinceQueryState" argument
      echoed back; the state from which the server is returning changes.

   o  *newQueryState*: "String" This is the state the query will be in
      after applying the set of changes to the old state.

   o  *upToId*: "String|null" Echoed back from the call.

   o  *total*: "Number" The total number of foos in the results (given
      the _filter_).

   o  *removed*: "String[]" The _id_ for every foo that was in the query
      results in the old state and is not in the results in the new
      state.  If the sort and filter are both only on immutable
      properties and an _upToId_ is supplied and exists in the results,
      any ids that were removed but have a higher index than _upToId_
      SHOULD be omitted.  If the server cannot calculate this exactly,
      the server MAY return extra foos in addition that may have been in
      the old results but are not in the new results.  If the _filter_
      or _sort_ includes a mutable property, the server MUST include all
      foos in the current results for which this property MAY have
      changed.

   o  *added*: "AddedItem[]" The id and index in the query results (in
      the new state) for every foo that has been added to the results
      since the old state AND every foo in the current results that was
      included in the _removed_ array (due to a filter or sort based
      upon a mutable property).  If the sort and filter are both only on
      immutable properties and an _upToId_ is supplied and exists in the
      results, any ids that were added but have a higher index than
      _upToId_ SHOULD be omitted.  The array MUST be sorted in order of
      index, lowest index first.  An *AddedItem* object has the
      following properties:

      *  *id*: "String"

      *  *index*: "Number"

   The result of this is that if the client has a cached sparse array of
   foo ids in the results in the old state:

   fooIds = [ "id1", "id2", null, null, "id3", "id4", null, null, null ]

   then if it *splices out* all foos in the removed array:

      removed = [ "id2", ... ];
      fooIds => [ "id1", null, null, "id3", "id4", null, null, null ]

   and *splices in* (in order) all of the foos in the added array:

  added = [{ id: "id5", index: 0, ... }];
  fooIds => [ "id5", "id1", null, null, "id3", "id4", null, null, null ]

   and *truncates* or *extends* to the new total length, then the
   results will now be in the new state.

   The following additional errors may be returned instead of the _Foo/
   queryChanges_ response:

   "tooManyChanges": There are more changes than the client's
   _maxChanges_ argument.  Each item in the removed or added array is
   considered as one change.  The client may retry with a higher max
   changes or invalidate its cache of the query results.

   "cannotCalculateChanges": The server cannot calculate the changes
   from the queryState string given by the client.  Usually due to the
   client's state being too old.  The client MUST invalidate its cache
   of the query results.

4.6.  Examples

   Suppose we have a type _Todo_ with the following properties:

   o  *id*: "String" (immutable; server-set) The id of the object.

   o  *title*: "String" A brief summary of what is to be done.

   o  *keywords*: "String[Boolean]" (mutable; default: "{}") A set of
      keywords that apply to the todo.  The set is represented as an
      object, with the keys being the _keywords_. The value for each key
      in the object MUST be "true".

   o  *neuralNetworkTimeEstimation*: "Number" (server-set) The title and
      keywords are fed into the server's state-of-the-art neural network
      to get an estimation of how long this todo will take, in seconds.

   and the server supports querying by keyword using the syntax "{
   hasKeyword: "foo" }" in the _filter_ argument to _/query_.

   Now, a client might want to display the list of todos with a
   particular query, so it makes the following method call:

                    "filter": { "hasKeyword": "music" },
                    "sort": [{ "property": "title" }],
                    "position": 0,
                    "limit": 10
                  }, "0"],
                  ["Todo/get", {
                    "#ids": {

                    },
                  }, "1"]]

   This would query the server for the set of todos with a keyword of
   "music", sorted by title, and limited to the first 10 results.  It
   fetches the full object for each of these Todos using backreferences
   to reference the result of the query.  The response might look

   Now suppose the user adds a keyword "chopin" and removes the keyword

                     }
                   }
                 }, "0"]]

   or it may send a minimal patch:

                      [["Todo/set", {
                        "ifInState": "10324",

                        }
                      }, "0"]]

   The effect is exactly the same on the server in either case, and
   presuming the server is still in state "10324" it will probably
   return success:

5.  Binary data

   Binary data is referenced by a _blobId_ in JMAP, and uploaded/
   downloaded separately to the core API.  A blobId does not have a name
   inherent to it, but this is normally given in the same object that
   contains the blobId.  The data represented by a blobId is immutable.



Jenkins                  Expires January 3, 2019               [Page 41]


Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   Any blobId that exists within an account may be used when creating/
   updating another object in that account.  For example, an Email type
   may have a blobId that represents the [RFC5322] representation of the
   message.  A client could create a new Email object with an attachment
   and use this blobId, in effect attaching the old message to the new
   one.  Similarly it could attach any existing existing attachment of
   an old message without having to download and upload it again.

   When the client uses a blobId in a create/update, the server MAY
   assign a new blobId to refer to the same binary data from the new/
   updated object.  If it does so, it MUST return any properties that
   contain a changed blobId in the created/updated response so the
   client gets the new ids.

   A blob that is not referenced by a JMAP object (e.g. as a message
   attachment) MAY be deleted by the server to free up resources.
   Uploads (see below) are initially unreferenced blobs.  To ensure
   interoperability:

   o  The server SHOULD use a separate quota for unreferenced blobs to
      the user's usual quota.

   o  This quota SHOULD be at least the maximum total size that a single
      object can reference on this server.  For example, if supporting
      JMAP Mail, this should be at least the maximum total attachments
      size for a message.

   o  When an upload would take the user over quota, the server MUST
      delete unreferenced blobs in date order, oldest first, until there
      is room for the new blob.

   o  Except where quota restrictions force early deletion, an
      unreferenced blob MUST NOT be deleted for at least 1 hour from the
      time of upload; if reuploaded, the same blobId MAY be returned,
      but this SHOULD reset the expiry time.

   o  A blob MUST NOT be deleted during the method call which removed
      the last reference, so that a client can issue a create and a
      destroy that both reference the blob within the same method call.

5.1.  Uploading binary data

   There is a single endpoint which handles all file uploads for an
   account, regardless of what they are to be used for.  The JMAP
   Session object has an _uploadUrl_ property in [RFC6570] URI Template
   (level 1) format, which MAY contain a variable called "accountId".
   The client may use this template in combination with an _accountId_




Jenkins                  Expires January 3, 2019               [Page 42]


Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   (if required in the template) to get the URL of the file upload
   resource.

   To upload a file, the client submits an authenticated POST request to
   the file upload resource.

   A successful request MUST return a single JSON object with the
   following properties as the response:

   o  *accountId*: "String" The id of the account used for the call.

   o  *blobId*: "String", The id representing the binary data uploaded.
      The data for this id is immutable.  The id _only_ refers to the
      binary data, not any metadata.

   o  *type*: "String" The media type of the file (as specified in
      [RFC6838], section 4.2) as set in the Content-Type header of the
      upload HTTP request.

   o  *size*: "Number" The size of the file in octets.

   If identical binary content to an existing blob in the account is
   uploaded, the existing blobId MAY be returned.

5.2.  Downloading binary data

   The JMAP Session object has a _downloadUrl_ property, which is in
   [RFC6570] URI Template (level 1) format.  The URL MUST contain a
   variable called "blobId", MAY contain a variable called "accountId",
   and SHOULD contain a variable called "name".

   The client may use this template in combination with an _accountId_
   (if required in the URL template) and _blobId_ to download any binary
   data (files) referenced by other objects.  Since a blob is not
   associated with a particular name, the template SHOULD allow a name
   to be substituted in as well; the server will return this as the
   filename if it sets a "Content-Disposition" header.

   To download the data the client makes an authenticated GET request to
   the download URL with the appropriate variables substituted in.  The
   client SHOULD send an "Accept" header with the content type they
   would like the server to return for the file.  The "Content-Type"
   header of a successful response SHOULD be set to the type as
   requested in the "Accept" header by the client, or "application/
   octet-stream" if unknown and no "Accept" header given.

5.3.  Blob/copy

   Binary data may be copied *between* two different accounts using the
   _Blob/copy_ method, rather than having to download then reupload on
   the client.

   The _Blob/copy_ method takes the following arguments:

   o  *fromAccountId*: "String|null" The id of the account to copy blobs
      from.  If "null", defaults to the primary account.

   o  *toAccountId*: "String|null" The id of the account to copy blobs
      to.  If "null", defaults to the primary account.

   o  *blobIds*: "String[]" A list of ids of blobs to copy to the other
      account.

   The response has the following arguments:

   o  *fromAccountId*: "String" The id of the account emails were copied
      from.

   o  *toAccountId*: "String" The id of the account emails were copied
      to.

   o  *copied*: "String[String]|null" A map of the blob id in the
      _fromAccount_ to the id for the blob in the _toAccount_, or "null"
      if none were successfully copied.

   o  *notCopied*: "String[SetError]|null" A map of blob id to a
      SetError object for each blob that failed to be copied, "null" if
      none.

   The *SetError* may be any of the standard set errors that may be
   returned for a _create_.

   The following additional errors may be returned instead of the _Blob/
   copy_ response:

   "fromAccountNotFound": A _fromAccountId_ was explicitly included with
   the request, but it does not correspond to a valid account.

   "toAccountNotFound": A _toAccountId_ was explicitly included with the
   request, but it does not correspond to a valid account.

6.  Push

   Push notifications allow clients to efficiently update (almost)
   instantly to stay in sync with data changes on the server.  In JMAP,
   push notifications occur out-of-band (i.e. not over the same
   connection as API exchanges), so that they can make use of efficient
   native push mechanisms on different platforms.

   The general model for push is simple and sends minimal data over the
   push channel.  The format allows multiple changes to be coalesced
   into a single push update, and the frequency of pushes to be rate
   limited by the server.  It doesn't matter if some push events are
   dropped before they reach the client; it will still get all changes
   next time it syncs.

6.1.  The StateChange object

   When something changes on the server, the server pushes a
   *StateChange* object to the client.  A *StateChange* object has the
   following properties:

   o  *changed*: "String[TypeState]" A map of _account id_ to an object
      encoding the state of data types that have changed for that
      account since the last push event, for each of the accounts to
      which the user has access and for which something has changed.  A
      *TypeState* object is a map.  The keys are the type name "Foo"
      (e.g.  "Mailbox" or "Email"), and the value is the _state_
      property that would currently be returned by a call to _Foo/get_.
      The client can compare the new state strings with its current
      values to see whether it has the current data for these types.  If
      not, the changes can then be efficiently fetched in a single
      standard API request (using the _/changes_ type methods).

6.2.  PushSubscription

   A push subscription is a message delivery context established between
   the client and a push service.  A *PushSubscription* object has the
   following properties:

   o  *url*: "String" An absolute URL where the JMAP server will POST
      the data for the push message.  This MUST begin with "https://".

   o  *expires*: "UTCDate|null" The time this push subscription expires.
      If specified, the JMAP server MUST NOT make further requests to
      this resource after this time.  It MAY automatically remove the
      push subscription at or after this time.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   o  *keys*: "Object|null" Client-generated encryption keys.  If
      supplied the server MUST use them as specified in [RFC8291] to
      encrypt all data sent to the push subscription.  The object MUST
      have the following properties:

      *  *p256dh*: the P-256 ECDH Diffie-Hellman public key as described
         in [RFC8291], encoded in URL-safe base64 representation as
         defined in [RFC4648].

      *  *auth*: the authentication secret as described in [RFC8291],
         encoded in URL-safe base64 representation as defined in
         [RFC4648].

   o  *types*: "String[]|null" A list of types the client is interested
      in (using the same names as the keys in the _TypeState_ object).
      Push events will only be sent if the data for one of these types
      changes.  Other types are omitted from the TypeState object.  If
      "null", changes will be pushed for all types.

   Clients may register the push subscription with the JMAP server,
   which will then make a POST request to the associated push endpoint
   whenever an event occurs.

   The POST request MUST have a content type of "application/json" and
   contain the UTF-8 JSON encoded _StateChange_ object as the body.  The
   request MUST have a "TTL" header, and MAY have "Urgency" and/or
   "Topic" headers, as specified in section 5 of [RFC8030].

   If the response code is "503" (Service Unavailable), the JMAP server
   MAY try again later, but may also just drop the event.  If the
   response code is "429" (Too Many Requests) the JMAP server SHOULD
   attempt to reduce the frequency of pushes to that URL.  Any other
   "4xx" or "5xx" response code MUST be considered a *permanent failure*
   and the push subscription should be deregistered (not tried again
   even for future events unless explicitly re-registered by the
   client).

   The use of this push endpoint conforms with the use of a push
   endpoint by an Application Server as defined in [RFC8030].  A client
   MAY use the rest of [RFC8030] in combination with its own Push Server
   to form a complete end-to-end solution, or MAY rely on alternative
   mechanisms to ensure the delivery of the pushed data after it leaves
   the JMAP server.

6.2.1.  PushSubscription/set

   Each session may only have a single push subscription registered.
   The push subscription is tied to the access token used to create it.
   Should the access token expire or be revoked, the push subscription
   MUST be removed by the JMAP server.  The client MUST re-register the
   push subscription after reauthenticating to resume callbacks.

   To set the push subscription, make a call to _PushSubscription/set_.
   It takes the following argument:

   o  *pushSubscription*: "PushSubscription|null" The PushSubscription
      object representing the endpoint the JMAP server will POST events
      to.  This will replace any previously set subscription.  Set to
      "null" to remove any previously registered subscription.

   The response has no arguments.

   The following additional errors may be returned instead of the
   _PushSubscription/set_ response:

   "invalidUrl": Returned if the URL does not begin with "https://", or
   is otherwise syntactically invalid or does not resolve.

   "forbidden": Returned if the URL is valid, but for policy reasons the
   server is not willing to connect to it.

6.2.2.  PushSubscription/get

   To check the currently set push subscription (if any), make a call to
   _PushSubscription/set_. It does not take any arguments.  The response
   has a single argument:

   o  *pushSubscription*: "PushSubscription|null" The PushSubscription
      object the JMAP server is currently posting push events to, or
      "null" if none.

6.3.  Event Source

   Clients that can hold open TCP connections can connect directly to
   the JMAP server to receive push notifications via a "text/event-
   stream" resource, as described in <http://www.w3.org/TR/
   eventsource/>.  This is a long running HTTP request down which the
   server can push data.

   When a change occurs in the data on the server, it pushes an event
   called *state* to any connected clients, with the _StateChange_
   object as the data.

Internet-Draft                    JMAP                         July 2018


   The server SHOULD also send a new event id that encodes the entire
   server state visible to the user immediately after sending a _state_
   event.  When a new connection is made to the event-source endpoint, a
   client following the server-sent events specification [1] will send a
   Last-Event-ID HTTP header with the last id it saw, which the server
   can use to work out whether the client has missed some changes.  If
   so, it SHOULD send these changes immediately on connection.

   The client MAY add a query parameter called "types", with the value
   being a comma-separated list of type names.  If present, the server
   MUST only push changes for the types in this list.  If omitted,
   changes to all types are pushed.

   The client MAY add a query parameter called "closeafter" with value
   "state" to the event-source resource URL when requesting the event-
   source resource.  If set, the server MUST end the HTTP response after
   pushing a _state_ event.  This can be used by clients in environments
   where buffering proxies prevent the pushed data from arriving
   immediately, or indeed at all, when operating in the usual mode.

   The client MAY add a query parameter called "ping", with a positive
   integer value representing a length of time in seconds, e.g.
   "ping=300".  If set, the server MUST send an event called *ping*
   whenever this time elapses since the previous event was sent.  This
   MUST NOT set a new event id.

   The server MAY modify the interval given as a query parameter to be
   subject to a minimum and/or maximum value.  For interoperability,
   servers MUST NOT have a minimum allowed value higher than 30 or a
   maximum allowed value less than 300.

   The data for the ping event MUST be a JSON object containing an
   _interval_ property, the value (type "Number") being the interval in
   seconds the server is using to send pings (this may be different to
   the requested value if the server clamped it to be within a min/max
   value).

   Clients can monitor for the _ping_ event to help determine when the
   closeafter mode may be required.

   Refer to the JMAP Session resource section of this spec for details
   on how to get the URL for the event-source resource.  Requests to the
   resource MUST be authenticated.

   A client MAY hold open multiple connections to the event-source
   resource, although it SHOULD try to use a single connection for
   efficiency.

7.  Security considerations

7.1.  Transport confidentiality

   All HTTP requests MUST use [RFC5246] TLS (https) transport to ensure
   the confidentiality of data sent and received via JMAP.  Clients MUST
   validate TLS certificate chains to protect against man-in-the-middle
   attacks.

7.2.  Authentication scheme

   A number of HTTP authentication schemes have been standardised
   (<https://www.iana.org/assignments/http-authschemes/http-
   authschemes.xhtml>).  Servers should take care to assess the security
   characteristics of different schemes in relation to their needs when
   deciding what to implement.

   If offering the Basic authentication scheme, services are strongly
   recommended to not allow a user's regular password but require
   generation of a unique "app password" via some external mechanism for
   each client they wish to connect.  This allows connections from
   different devices to be differentiated by the server, and access to
   be individually revoked.

7.3.  Service autodiscovery

   Unless secured by something like DNSSEC, autodiscovery of server
   details is vulnerable to a DNS poisoning attack leading to the client
   talking to an attacker's server instead of the real JMAP server.  The
   attacker may then man-in-the-middle requests and depending on the
   authentication scheme, steal credentials to generate its own
   requests.

   Clients that do not support SRV lookups are likely to try just using
   the "/.well-known/jmap" path directly against the domain of the
   username over HTTPS.  Servers SHOULD ensure this path resolves or
   redirects to the correct JMAP Session resource to allow this to work.
   If this is not feasible, servers MUST ensure this path cannot be
   controlled by an attacker, as again it may be used to steal
   credentials.

7.4.  JSON parsing

   The security considerations of [RFC7159] apply to the use of JSON as
   the data interchange format.

7.5.  Denial of service

   A small request may result in a very large response, and require
   considerable work on the server if resource limits are not enforced.
   JMAP provides mechanisms for advertising and enforcing a wide variety
   of limits for mitigating this threat, including limits on number of
   objects fetched in a single method call, number of methods in a
   single request, number of concurrent requests, etc.

   JMAP servers MUST implement sensible limits to mitigate against
   resource exhaustion attacks.

7.6.  Push encryption

   When data changes, a small object is pushed with the new state
   strings for the types that have changed.  While the data here is
   minimal, a passive man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to gain
   useful information.  To ensure confidentiality, if the push is sent
   via a third party outside of the control of the client and JMAP
   server the client MUST specify encryption keys when establishing the
   PushSubscription.

   The privacy and security considerations of [RFC8030] and [RFC8291]
   also all apply to the use of the PushSubscription mechanism.

8.  IANA Considerations

8.1.  Assignment of jmap Service Name

   IANA will assign the 'jmap' service name in the 'Service Name and
   Transport Protocol Port Number Registry' [RFC6335].

   Service Name: jmap

   Transport Protocol(s): tcp

   Assignee: IESG

   Contact: IETF Chair

   Description: JSON Meta Application Protocol

   name _JSON Mail Access Protocol_. This will be de-assigned and re-
   assigned with the approval of the previous assignee.

8.2.  Registration of Well-known URI suffix for JMAP

   IANA will register the following well-known URI suffix for JMAP as
   described in [RFC5785]:

   URI Suffix: jmap

   Change Controller: IETF

   Specification Document: this document, section 2.1.

8.3.  Registration of the jmap URN Sub-namespace

   IANA will register the following URN sub-namespace in the "IETF URN
   Sub-namespace for Registered Protocol Parameter Identifiers" registry
   as described in [RFC3553].

   Registered Parameter Identifier: jmap

   Reference: this document, next section

   IANA Registry Reference: {insert IANA registry URL for registry in
   next section, upon approval}

8.4.  Creation of "JMAP capabilities" registry

   IANA will create a registry for JMAP capabilities as described in
   section 2.1.  JMAP capabilities are advertised in the _capabilities_
   property of the _JMAP Session_ resource.  They are used to extend the
   functionality of a JMAP server.  A capability is referenced by a URI.
   The JMAP capability URI can be a URN starting with
   "urn:ietf:params:jmap:" plus a unique suffix which is the index value
   in the jmap URN sub-namespace.  Registration of a JMAP capability
   with another form of URI has no impact on the jmap URN sub-namespace.

   This registry follows the expert review process unless the "intended
   use" field is _common_ in which case registration follows the
   specification required process.

   A JMAP capability registration can have an intended use of 'common',
   'limited', or 'obsolete'.  IANA will list common use registrations
   prominently and separately from those with other intended use values.

   The JMAP capability registration procedure is not a formal standards
   process, but rather an administrative procedure intended to allow
   community comment and sanity checking without excessive time delay.

8.4.1.  Preliminary Community Review

   Notice of a potential JMAP common use registration SHOULD be sent to
   the jmap@ietf.org mailing list for review.  This mailing list is
   appropriate to solicit community feedback on a proposed JMAP
   capability.  Registrations that are not intended for common use MAY
   be sent to the list for review as well; doing so is entirely
   OPTIONAL, but is encouraged.

   The intent of the public posting to this list is to solicit comments
   and feedback on the choice of capability name, the unambiguity of the
   specification document, and a review of any interoperability or
   security considerations.  The submitter may submit a revised
   registration proposal or abandon the registration completely and at
   any time.

8.4.2.  Submit Request to IANA

   Registration requests can be sent to iana@iana.org.

8.4.3.  Designated Expert Review

   For a limited use registration, the designated expert's (DE) primary
   concern is preventing name collisions and encouraging the submitter
   to document security and privacy considerations; a published
   specification is not required.  For a common use registration, the DE
   is expected to confirm that suitable documentation as described in
   [RFC8126], Section 4.6, is available.  The DE should also verify the
   capability does not conflict with work that is active or already
   published within the IETF.

   Before a period of 30 days has passed, the DE will either approve or
   deny the registration request and publish a notice of the decision to
   the JMAP WG mailing list or its successor, as well as informing IANA.
   A denial notice must be justified by an explanation, and in the cases
   where it is possible, concrete suggestions on how the request can be
   modified so as to become acceptable should be provided.

8.4.4.  Change Procedures

   Once a JMAP capability has been published by the IANA, the change
   controller may request a change to its definition.  The same
   procedure that would be appropriate for the original registration
   request is used to process a change request.

   JMAP capability registrations may not be deleted; capabilities that
   are no longer believed appropriate for use can be declared obsolete

   by a change to their "intended use" field; such capabilities will be
   clearly marked in the lists published by the IANA.

   Significant changes to a capability's definition should be requested
   only when there are serious omissions or errors in the published
   specification.  When review is required, a change request may be
   denied if it renders entities that were valid under the previous
   definition invalid under the new definition.

   The owner of a JMAP capability may pass responsibility to another
   person or agency by informing the IANA; this can be done without
   discussion or review.

   The IESG may reassign responsibility for a JMAP capability.  The most
   common case of this will be to enable changes to be made to
   capabilities where the author of the registration has died, moved out
   of contact, or is otherwise unable to make changes that are important
   to the community.

8.4.5.  JMAP Capabilities Registry Template:

   Capability name: (see capability property in section 2)
