The DomainAliasFilterType (
domainalias_input.xsd) allows you to specify a domain alias either by id, name, primary domain id, or primary domain name. In addition, it allows you to specify multiple domain aliases within one filter. Finally, the filter can be left empty, which means that all domain aliases are selected.
