<instance> is used to represent an object in eDirectory or the application as part of the response to a <query> command or a <query-ex> command. <instance> does not necessarily represent the complete state of object, but rather just the information requested by the <query> or <query-ex>.

When returned from a driver, an <association> is required.


<instance class-name="User" src-dn="\Users\Samuel">
<attr attr-name="Surname">
<attr attr-name="cn">
<attr attr-name="Given Name">
<attr attr-name="Telephone Number">
