Update Request Filters

Update Request Filters are no longer required starting with v4 of the LogiSense Billing API.

When updating an object you use the update request header with the list of properties to update. Then you need only supply the new values in the body of your request. Please note, this header can only be used with PUT or PATCH requests.

Field List:

  • name
  • isRequired
  • contactTypeTypeId
  • description
  • sendEmail
  • showOnOverview
  • showOnNewAccount

Patch Types

The PATCH verb allows you to update an object. Just like a put, you only need to supply the fields that will be updated in the payload. However, a patch allows you to update many objects at once.

PATCH operations can be used as a standard API call or nested within the envelope of a DataFlow. Below you will find the child objects that can be updated as part of PATCH operations for the ContactType object.
