Title: Reply to 'Can gravitational dynamics be obtained by diffeomorphism invariance of action?'

Abstract

In a previous work we showed that, in a suitable setting, one can use diffeomorphism invariance in order to derive gravitational field equations from boundary terms of the gravitational action. Standing by our results we reply here to a recent comment questioning their validity.
