DirectContainer-RejectPutModifyingContainmentTriples[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD NOT allow HTTP PUT to update an LDPC’s containment triples; if the server receives such a request, it SHOULD respond with a 409 (Conflict) status code.
DirectContainer-RestrictUriReUseSlug[SHOULD]LDP servers that allow member creation via POST SHOULD NOT re-use URIs.
DirectContainer-RdfTypeLdpContainer[MAY]The representation of a LDPC MAY have an rdf:type of ldp:Container for Linked Data Platform Container. Non-normative note: LDPCs might have additional types, like any LDP-RS.
DirectContainer-PreferMembershipTriples[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD respect all of a client's LDP-defined hints, for example which subsets of LDP-defined state the client is interested in processing, to influence the set of triples returned in representations of an LDPC, particularly for large LDPCs. See also [LDP-PAGING].
DirectContainer-RestrictPutReUseUri[SHOULD]LDP servers that allow LDPR creation via PUT SHOULD NOT re-use URIs. For RDF representations (LDP-RSs),the created resource can be thought of as an RDF named graph [rdf11-concepts].

DirectContainer-RequestedInteractionModelHeaders[MUST]LDP servers that successfully create a resource from a RDF representation in the request entity body MUST honor the client's requested interaction model(s). The created resource can be thought of as an RDF named graph [rdf11-concepts]. If any model cannot be honored, the server MUST fail the request.
MemberResource-PublishConstraintsUnknownProp[MUST]LDP servers MUST publish any constraints on LDP clients’ ability to create or update LDPRs, by adding a Link header with rel='http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#constrainedBy' [RFC5988] to all responses to requests which fail due to violation of those constraints.
DirectContainer-RestrictClientInference[MANUAL, MUST]LDP servers MUST NOT require LDP clients to implement inferencing in order to recognize the subset of content defined by LDP. Other specifications built on top of LDP may require clients to implement inferencing [rdf11-concepts]. The practical implication is that all content defined by LDP must be explicitly represented, unless noted otherwise within this document.
DirectContainer-PutReadOnlyProperties4xxStatus[MUST]If an otherwise valid HTTP PUT request is received that attempts to change properties the server does not allow clients to modify, LDP servers MUST respond with a 4xx range status code (typically 409 Conflict)
MemberResource-PublishConstraintsReadOnlyProp[MUST]LDP servers MUST publish any constraints on LDP clients’ ability to create or update LDPRs, by adding a Link header with rel='http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#constrainedBy' [RFC5988] to all responses to requests which fail due to violation of those constraints.
DirectContainer-PublishConstraintsReadOnlyProp[MUST]LDP servers MUST publish any constraints on LDP clients’ ability to create or update LDPRs, by adding a Link header with rel='http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#constrainedBy' [RFC5988] to all responses to requests which fail due to violation of those constraints.
DirectContainer-RelativeUriResolutionPut[MUST]LDP servers MUST assign the default base-URI for [RFC3987] relative-URI resolution to be the HTTP Request-URI when the resource already exists, and to the URI of the created resource when the request results in the creation of a new resource.
MemberResource-4xxErrorHasResponseBody[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD provide a corresponding response body containing information about which properties could not be persisted. The format of the 4xx response body is not constrained by LDP.
DirectContainer-4xxErrorHasResponseBody[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD provide a corresponding response body containing information about which properties could not be persisted. The format of the 4xx response body is not constrained by LDP.
DirectContainer-PutReplacesResource[MUST]If a HTTP PUT is accepted on an existing resource, LDP servers MUST replace the entire persistent state of the identified resource with the entity representation in the body of the request.
DirectContainer-PublishConstraintsUnknownProp[MUST]LDP servers MUST publish any constraints on LDP clients’ ability to create or update LDPRs, by adding a Link header with rel='http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#constrainedBy' [RFC5988] to all responses to requests which fail due to violation of those constraints.
MemberResource-IsHttp11Manual[MANUAL, MUST]LDP servers MUST at least be HTTP/1.1 conformant servers [HTTP11].
MemberResource-PutReadOnlyProperties4xxStatus[MUST]If an otherwise valid HTTP PUT request is received that attempts to change properties the server does not allow clients to modify, LDP servers MUST respond with a 4xx range status code (typically 409 Conflict)
MemberResource-ResponsePropertiesNotPersisted[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD provide a corresponding response body containing information about which properties could not be persisted. The format of the 4xx response body is not constrained by LDP. LDP servers expose these application-specific constraints as described in section 4.2.1 General.
DirectContainer-ResponsePropertiesNotPersisted[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD provide a corresponding response body containing information about which properties could not be persisted. The format of the 4xx response body is not constrained by LDP. LDP servers expose these application-specific constraints as described in section 4.2.1 General.
DirectContainer-ReUseVocabularies[MANUAL, SHOULD]LDP-RSs SHOULD reuse existing vocabularies instead of creating their own duplicate vocabulary terms. In addition to this general rule, some specific cases are covered by other conformance rules.
DirectContainer-IsHttp11Manual[MANUAL, MUST]LDP servers MUST at least be HTTP/1.1 conformant servers [HTTP11].
MemberResource-PutPropertiesNotPersisted[MUST]If an otherwise valid HTTP PUT request is received that contains properties the server chooses not to persist, e.g. unknown content, LDP servers MUST respond with an appropriate 4xx range status code [HTTP11].
DirectContainer-RequestedInteractionModelCreateNotAllowed[MUST]LDP servers that successfully create a resource from a RDF representation in the request entity body MUST honor the client's requested interaction model(s). The created resource can be thought of as an RDF named graph [rdf11-concepts]. If any model cannot be honored, the server MUST fail the request.
MemberResource-RestrictClientInference[MANUAL, MUST]LDP servers MUST NOT require LDP clients to implement inferencing in order to recognize the subset of content defined by LDP. Other specifications built on top of LDP may require clients to implement inferencing [rdf11-concepts]. The practical implication is that all content defined by LDP must be explicitly represented, unless noted otherwise within this document.
DirectContainer-PutSimpleUpdate[MUST]LDP servers SHOULD allow clients to update resources without requiring detailed knowledge of server-specific constraints. This is a consequence of the requirement to enable simple creation and modification of LDPRs.

Passed Test CasesGroupsDescription of Test Method
DirectContainer-PostContainer[MUST]When a successful HTTP POST request to an LDPC results in the creation of an LDPR, a containment triple MUST be added to the state of LDPC.
DirectContainer-HttpLinkHeader[MUST]LDP servers exposing LDPCs MUST advertise their LDP support by exposing a HTTP Link header with a target URI matching the type of container (see below) the server supports, and a link relation type of type (that is, rel='type') in all responses to requests made to the LDPC's HTTP Request-URI.
DirectContainer-JsonLdRepresentation[MUST] LDP servers must respond with a application/ld+json representation of the requested LDP-RS when the request includes an Accept header, unless content negotiation or Turtle support requires a different outcome [JSON-LD].
NonRDFSource-ConditionFailedStatusCode[MUST]LDP servers MUST respond with status code 412 (Condition Failed) if ETags fail to match when there are no other errors with the request [HTTP11]. LDP servers that require conditional requests MUST respond with status code 428 (Precondition Required) when the absence of a precondition is the only reason for rejecting the request [RFC6585].
DirectContainer-CreateWithoutConstraints[SHOULD]LDP servers SHOULD allow clients to create new resources without requiring detailed knowledge of application-specific constraints. This is a consequence of the requirement to enable simple creation and modification of LDPRs. LDP servers expose these application-specific constraints as described in section 4.2.1 General.

DirectContainer-ServerHonorsSlug[MAY]LDP servers MAY allow clients to suggest the URI for a resource created through POST, using the HTTP Slug header as defined in [RFC5023]. LDP adds no new requirements to this usage, so its presence functions as a client hint to the server providing a desired string to be incorporated into the server's final choice of resource URI.
DirectContainer-UseMemberPredicate[ldpMember, SHOULD]LDP Direct Containers SHOULD use the ldp:member predicate as an LDPC's membership predicate if there is no obvious predicate from an application vocabulary to use.
NonRDFSource-PutRequiresIfMatch[SHOULD]LDP clients SHOULD use the HTTP If-Match header and HTTP ETags to ensure it isn’t modifying a resource that has changed since the client last retrieved its representation. LDP servers SHOULD require the HTTP If-Match header and HTTP ETags to detect collisions.

LDP servers that require conditional requests MUST respond with status code 428 (Precondition Required) when the absence of a precondition is the only reason for rejecting the request [RFC6585].
DirectContainer-AcceptPostResponseHeader[MUST]LDP servers that support POST MUST include an Accept-Post response header on HTTP OPTIONS responses, listing post document media type(s) supported by the server.
MemberResource-ConditionFailedStatusCode[MUST]LDP servers MUST respond with status code 412 (Condition Failed) if ETags fail to match when there are no other errors with the request [HTTP11]. LDP servers that require conditional requests MUST respond with status code 428 (Precondition Required) when the absence of a precondition is the only reason for rejecting the request [RFC6585].
DirectContainer-PostResponseStatusAndLocation[MUST]If the resource was created successfully, LDP servers MUST respond with status code 201 (Created) and the Location header set to the new resource’s URL. Clients shall not expect any representation in the response entity body on a 201 (Created) response.
MemberResource-PutSimpleUpdate[MUST]LDP servers SHOULD allow clients to update resources without requiring detailed knowledge of server-specific constraints. This is a consequence of the requirement to enable simple creation and modification of LDPRs.

NonRDFSource-ETagHeadersGet[MUST]LDP server responses MUST use entity tags (either weak or strong ones) as response ETag header values.
MemberResource-LdpLinkHeader[MUST]LDP servers exposing LDPRs MUST advertise their LDP support by exposing a HTTP Link header with a target URI of http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#Resource, and a link relation type of type (that is, rel='type') in all responses to requests made to the LDPR's HTTP Request-URI.

DirectContainer-ContainsRdfType[SHOULD]LDP-RSs representations SHOULD have at least one rdf:type set explicitly. This makes the representations much more useful to client applications that don’t support inferencing.
DirectContainer-Head[MUST]LDP servers MUST support the HTTP HEAD method.
DirectContainer-NullRelativeUriPost[MUST]In RDF representations, LDP servers MUST interpret the null relative URI for the subject of triples in the LDPR representation in the request entity body as referring to the entity in the request body. Commonly, that entity is the model for the “to be created” LDPR, so triples whose subject is the null relative URI will usually result in triples in the created resource whose subject is the created resource.
DirectContainer-ConditionFailedStatusCode[MUST]LDP servers MUST respond with status code 412 (Condition Failed) if ETags fail to match when there are no other errors with the request [HTTP11].
