Editing an item
How to edit an item
In order to edit an item you need to know the item signature, which is then used to identify and retreive the item for editing. If you retrieve the signature from an existing request you can reuse it. For more information go to Edit Item.
The behaviour of this endpoint differs depending on whether a design for the item is versioned or non versioned.
For a non-versioned design there is only one version of an item available, and the edit operation is applied to that version editing its properties and attributes.
For a versioned design of the item, however, a new version of the item being edited is created with the new properties and attributes. The End date property of the current version of the item is changed to the date of the edit operation.
If one or more attributes are not specified or the attribute values are not changed then their value will be left unchanged, otherwise the values will be replaced by the new values.
The following example includes a request to retrieve the item, you can omit the GET request if you are using the signature from a previous request. For more information go to GET Item.
