Warning: You are viewing the documentation for the old REST API. We recommend using version 2 of the REST API.

A method to edit a selection from a database. It is called using the following URL:$id?access_token=xxxx

In this, $id needs to be replaced by the numerical identifier or the name of the database you wish to create the selections for.

Available data

The following data can be placed in the message body of the HTTP PUT command:

  • name: name of the selection
  • description: description of the selection
  • parent-type: type of the parent: selection or database
  • parent-id: id of the database or selection
  • has-children: boolean value: whether or not the database has selections nested underneath it
  • has-referred: boolean value: whether or not there are other selections that refer to this selection.
  • has-rules: boolean value: whether or not the selection has selection rules

PHP example

The following example demonstrates how to use this method:

// dependencies

// change this into your access token
$api = new CopernicaRestApi("your-access-token");

// declare the id of the selection that you want to edit
$id = 1;

// data to be sent to the api
$data = array(
    'description'   =>  'a new description',
    'has_rules'      =>  true

// do the call, and print result
print_r($api->put("view/{$id}", $data));

The example above requires the CopernicaRestApi class.
