Syncpoint PUT


Syncpoint PUT

Updates a Syncpoint specified by the ID. This call can be used to update properties of the Syncpoint, as well as map or un-map a Syncpoint from an endpoint. Included properties of the input are updated if the values don't match existing values stored on the server, otherwise inputs are ignored if unchanged. Therefore, only changed values need be sent in the JSON input.
Specify at least one of 'restore_' parameters to restore removed syncpoint. PUT for inactive syncpoint allows only restore syncpoint action. No other properties will be changed during syncpoint restore.
Required Scope: Files/Folder Metadata, Update
