HTTP Verbs

Last updated September 13, 2017

Where possible, the FusionCMS API strives to use appropriate HTTP verbs for each action.

Verb Description
GET Used for retrieving resources.
POST Used for creating resources.
PATCH Used for updating resources with partial JSON data. For instance, a Matrix entry has a name attribute but could have any number of additional attributes. A PATCH request may accept one or more of the attributes to update the resource. PATCH it a relatively new and uncommon HTTP verb, so resource endpoints also accept POST requests.
DELETE Used for deleting resources.
