Introduction to APIs
Set Request Method
- GET: retrieve data
- POST: create data
- PUT: fully update (i.e. replace) an existing record
- PATCH: update part of an existing record
- DELETE: delete records
Each API's technical documentation will tell you which method you need for your request.
When creating a request through the API directory, the request method will be set automatically. When running a custom request, set your request method manually through the dropdown Method menu.
The POST, PUT, and PATCH methods will open up a window where you can enter a request body.
