status at creation is always DRAFT.

When initially created in DRAFT state, the confirmation_number is returned as an empty response. It is only on completion of a confirmation that the confirmation number is calculated and gets a value.

The remaining properties are automatically calculated.

Confirmation items (confirmation-items) can be specified directly at creation. Please find a documentation of the XML elements at Create confirmation items, but the XML element confirmation_id need not be specified with.
