PUT Data Source
This request method allows you to update Data Sources on the platform.
Enables scenarios where data sets maintained in other systems (e.g. SAP, Salesforce) can be updated into apps automatically.
Updates to a Data Source will be automatically synchronized to mobile devices by the platform. Thus if a Data Source is used in a Form or other Screen type, that Data Source can be kept continuously up to date via this API.
Currently, Data Sources cannot be deleted nor can they be created by this API – this is to protect existing Screens that use these Data Sources .
Thus, the Data Source must already exist on our platform and be referenced by its unique ExternalId for an API update to succeed.
Data Sources have a maximum limit of 50,000 rows. If more rows are required please contact our support team.
On the Cloud, this API is available via SSL-secured HTTPS connection using the REST PUT verb.
The format query string parameter controls the desired response format. Specify either XML or JSON.
You may use either JSON or XML formats in your PUT request.
You indicate this by setting the ContentType HTTP header as “application/json” or “application/xml”. If no ContentType is specified, XML format is assumed.
All XML formatted requests must specify the following XML namespace in the data source root element:
