Patch Requests

PATCH requests are a bit different than other HTTP requests. These follow the guidelines of the JSONPatch (IETF: RFC 6902) standard. A generic example taken from the definition can be seen below.

PATCH /api/v1/departments/[ID] HTTP/1.1
Content-type: application/json-patch+json
Authorization: Bearer [Your token]
    { "op": "test", "path": "/a/b/c", "value": "foo" },
    { "op": "remove", "path": "/a/b/c" },
    { "op": "add", "path": "/a/b/c", "value": [ "foo", "bar" ] },
    { "op": "replace", "path": "/a/b/c", "value": 42 },
    { "op": "move", "from": "/a/b/c", "path": "/a/b/d" },
    { "op": "copy", "from": "/a/b/d", "path": "/a/b/e" }

While application/json-patch+json is the prefered content-type, we also accept application/json and will handle it the same.
