PUT, POST, and DELETE methods

You can modify resources by using the HTTP PUT, POST, and DELETE methods.

The PUT, POST, and DELETE methods can be used to modify business object resources and object structure resources. However, the business rules of an object might prevent it from being updated by a REST API request. For example, a DELETE request on a work order resource might fail if the business object validations prevent deletions because of the current state of the work order.
