Type Specific Attributes

Aside from the base attributes that must be present in any request to create a measurement, there are specific attributes required for each measurement type.

We are mentioning only the required fields for every type. An exhaustive reference of all attributes that can be used are listed here.

Required attributes:

Name Description
query_class Must be either "IN" or "CHAOS"
query_type Varies with the query_class

NOTE: For privacy reasons, when use_probe_resolver is set to "true", the attribute set_rd_bit is silently set to "true".
