Changing a Value
To add values to an existing resource, the HTTP method
has to be used. Changing values requires authentication since only known
users may change values.
Modifying a Property Value
The request has to be sent to the Knora server using the
segment followed by the value's IRI:
HTTP PUT to http://host/values/valueIRI
The value IRI has to be URL-encoded.
To change an existing value (creating a new version of it), the value's current IRI and its new value have to be submitted as JSON in the HTTP body.
Depending on the type of the new value, one of the following formats
has to be used in order to create a new value (all these TypeScript interfaces are defined in module
Modifying a File Value
To change a file value, the client first uploads the new file to Sipi, following the procedure described in Adding Resources with Image Files.
Then the client sends a request to Knora, using this following route:
HTTP PUT to http://host/filevalue/resourceIRI
resourceIRI is the URL-encoded IRI of the resource whose file value is
to be changed. The body of the request is a JSON object described in the TypeScript
changeFileValueRequest in module
changeValueFormats, and contains
file, whose value is the
internalFilename that Sipi returned. The request header's
content type must be set to
Response on Value Change
When a value has been successfully changed, Knora sends back a JSON with the new value's IRI. The value IRI identifies the value and can be used to perform future Knora API V1 operations.
The JSON format of the response is described in the TypeScript interface
changeValueResponse in module
