View-Based PUT

To change the data stored for a record which already exists, send a PUT request to the URL for an edit form, or a view with inline editing enabled, with the record key appended.

Note that you should only include fields in your payload that exist in the form itself, as no others will be used in creating the new record.

Also keep in mind that all relevant record rules on the form in question will be triggered by a PUT request to that form.

Views that can accept a PUT request to update a record include the following:

  • Edit Forms
  • Tables (with inline editing turned on)
  • Searches (with inline editing turned on)
