[EP-tech] Q: Updating fields using the REST API



CRUD operations on the EPrints 3.3.15 REST API

Happy New years everyone,

I have a question about using the REST API to update an EPrints collection
(EPrints 3.3.15).
I'd like to update the value of the ID field for
/rest/eprint/#####/creators/#####/id.txt
and when I try to put (id.txt currently is empty) I get an error
like

    curl -v -u epautomation:testrepo -d "Moore-R-L" -X PUT
http://lemurprints.local/authors/rest/eprint/1/creators/1/id.txt
    *   Trying 172.28.128.4...
    * TCP_NODELAY set
    * Connected to lemurprints.local (172.28.128.4) port 80 (#0)
    * Server auth using Basic with user 'epautomation'
    > PUT /authors/rest/eprint/1/creators/1/id.txt HTTP/1.1
    > Host: lemurprints.local
    > Authorization: Basic ZXBhdXRvbWF0aW9uOnRlc3RyZXBv
    > User-Agent: curl/7.57.0
    > Accept: */*
    > Content-Length: 9
    > Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
    >
    * upload completely sent off: 9 out of 9 bytes
    < HTTP/1.1 501 Method PUT Not Implemented
    < Date: Mon, 08 Jan 2018 23:36:53 GMT
    < Server: Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
    < Content-Length: 0
    < Connection: close
    <
    * Closing connection 0

Doing a similar command to changed the "referred" field does work (flipping
the value from TRUE to FALSE).

    curl -v -u epautomation:testrepo -d "TRUE" -X PUT
http://lemurprints.local/authors/rest/eprint/1/refereed.txt
    *   Trying 172.28.128.4...
    * TCP_NODELAY set
    * Connected to lemurprints.local (172.28.128.4) port 80 (#0)
    * Server auth using Basic with user 'epautomation'
    > PUT /authors/rest/eprint/1/refereed.txt HTTP/1.1
    > Host: lemurprints.local
    > Authorization: Basic ZXBhdXRvbWF0aW9uOnRlc3RyZXBv
    > User-Agent: curl/7.57.0
    > Accept: */*
    > Content-Length: 4
    > Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
    >
    * upload completely sent off: 4 out of 4 bytes
    < HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    < Date: Mon, 08 Jan 2018 23:42:56 GMT
    < Server: Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
    < Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate
    < Vary: Accept-Encoding
    < Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    < Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
    <
    * Connection #0 to host lemurprints.local left intact

I am probably missing something obvious but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Robert
