  • created: when the database was created
  • fields: array of fields in the database

PHP example

The following example demonstrates how to use the API method:

// dependencies

// change this into your access token
$api = new CopernicaRestAPI("your-access-token", 3);

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

// do the call
$api->put("database/{$databaseID}", $data);

The example above requires the CopernicaRestApi class.
