How to use PUT Requests on Postman to Update Course Offering Information

Rim.Z.380 Posts: 5 🔍


I tried to use the PUT request documentation posted on Valence to update a course offering information, but it didn't work. I think I am not doing it correctly.

Can someone please provide me with a working example of how this PUT request looks like and how to update only specific course information? (For example Course Name, Code, Semester, etc.)

    Hi, are your other put calls against LP working correctly? And what is your version of LP?

    You cannot update Semester with a PUT call. We don't really have PUT calls for modifying org structure, though I mightily wish we did.

    Here is the JSON you send with a PUT to update a course offering.

        "Name": <string>,
        "Code": <string>,
        "StartDate": <string:UTCDateTime>|null,
        "EndDate": <string:UTCDateTime>|null,
        "IsActive": <boolean>,
        "Description": { <composite:RichTextInput> },
        "CanSelfRegister": <boolean>|null

    Please note this comment regarding CanSelfRegister. "CanSelfRegister

    Whether or not a user can self-register this course. Null is treated as false. This is required as of API version of LP v1.27, but not supported on versions prior to v1.27." This is why I asked about your version of LP.
