<p>In order to learn about external services known to an XMPP server or discovery service, a requesting entity (typically a client) sends an IQ-get containing an empty &lt;services/&gt; element qualified by the 'urn:xmpp:extdisco:1' namespace &NSNOTE;, typically to its own server but perhaps alternatively to a dedicated discovery service.</p>

<p>The responding entity (XMPP server or discovery service) SHOULD return the list of external services it is aware of, but MAY instead return an appropriate error, such as &unavailable; if the responding entity does not support this protocol or &forbidden; if the requesting entity does not have permission to receive the list of external services. Each service is encapsulated via a &lt;service/&gt; element.</p>
<p>Note: The processes by which a responding entity discovers external services for "proxying" to XMPP entities are out of scope for this specification.</p>

<p>If a requesting entity requests services of a particular type, the responding service MAY as needed send an updated list of the relevant services by "pushing" the list to a requesting entity that has previously requested the list. However, it MUST NOT push updates to the requesting entity unless it has presence information about the requesting entity (e.g., because the requesting entity is connected to the XMPP server or because the requesting entity has shared presence with a remote discovery service). A push is an IQ set to the requesting entity containing a &lt;service/&gt; payload with updated data about services matching the requested type (e.g., new services or updated credentials)</p>
