REST API: POST database intentions

The database intentions indicate what type of communication is allowed with this database. The intentions for email, sms, fax and pdf can all be enabled separately, to prevent accidental mailings.

The HTTP POST call to edit the intentions of a database can be found at the following address:

https://api.copernica.com/v2/database/$id/intentions?access_token=xxxx

The $id in the URL should be replaced by the unique identifier of the database.

Available parameters

The following parameters are available for the method. They are all optional and the intentions corresponding to the variables that are not used will not be changed.

  • email: Boolean that indicates whether the intention for email should be enabled.
  • sms: Boolean that indicates whether the intention for sms should be enabled.
  • fax: Boolean that indicates whether the intention for fax should be enabled.
  • pdf: Boolean that indicates whether the intention for pdf should be enabled.

Intentions can not be enabled if the corresponding field in the database does not exist.

PHP example

The following example demonstrates how to use this method.

// dependencies

    'email' =>  true,

    'fax'   =>  true,
    'pdf'   =>  true
);

// voer het verzoek uit
