The RESTful API defines a set of common interactions (read, update, search, etc.) performed on a repository of typed resources. For further information concerning how operations are defined and invoked, see Extended Operations on the RESTful API.

This is a full list of the operations defined by this specification:

Base Operations (All resource types)
Validate a resource[base]/[Resource]/$validate | [base]/[Resource]/[id]/$validate
Access a list of profiles, tags, and security labels[base]/$meta | [base]/[Resource]/$meta | [base]/[Resource]/[id]/$meta
Add profiles, tags, and security labels to a resource[base]/[Resource]/[id]/$meta-add
Delete profiles, tags, and security labels for a resource[base]/[Resource]/[id]/$meta-delete

Operations Defined by Implementation Guides

Notes:

  • The special operations on the meta element also operate on previous versions of a resource (/_history/). They are the only operations that can manipulate versions other than the "current" version.
  • Implementation Guides can define additional operations
