PREFER  return=minimal

return=representation
return=representation; include=" URIs "
return=representation; omit=" URIs "

http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#InboundReferencesInclude assertions from other Fedora resources to this node (excluded from representation by default)
http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#ServerManagedEmbed server managed properties in the representation (enabled by default)

POST Create new resources within a LDP container

Query Parameters:

CHECKSUM (Optional) Provide a SHA-1 checksum which will be checked against the uploaded content to ensure error-free transfer.

Request Headers:

CONTENT-DISPOSITION (Optional) The filename provided in the content disposition header will be stored in a premis:hasOriginalName property.

CONTENT-TYPE (Optional) MIME type of the uploaded binary or RDF content.

CONTENT-LOCATION (Optional) A URI to a resource to use instead of the request body

If the MIME type corresponds to a supported RDF format or SPARQL-Update, the uploaded content will be parsed as RDF and used to populate the child node properties.  RDF will be interpreted using the current resource as the base URI (e.g. <> will be expanded to the current URI). Namespaces must be declared in full.

For other MIME types, the uploaded content will be used to create a binary resource.

SLUG (Optional) A suggested name for the new child resource, which the repository may ignore.

The slug you provide does not guarantee the location of the created resource. Clients must check the Location header for the path to the created resource.

 

Example (1): Create a new child node

curl -X POST "http://localhost:8080/rest/"

Response:

Status: 201 Created
 
Headers:

Status:

201 Created

404 Not Found (resource does not exist – use PUT to specify a new resource name)

409 Conflict (checksum mismatch)

 


PUT  Create a resource with a specified path, or replace the triples associated with a resource with the triples provided in the request body.

Some resource properties are repository managed and cannot be removed or modified. Any attempt to do so may result in a 4xx error.

RDF will be interpreted using the current resource as the base URI (e.g. <> will be expanded to the current URI)

 

Request Headers:

CONTENT-TYPE  text/turtle, text/rdf+n3, application/n3, text/n3, application/rdf+xml, application/n-triples, text/html, text/plain, application/ld+json, message/external-body

IF-MATCH

IF-UNMODIFIED-SINCE

CONTENT-LOCATION (Optional) A URI to a resource to use instead of the request body

Query Parameters:

CHECKSUM Checksum of the binary content (in the form urn:sha1:<sha1-hash>). If the checksum doesn't match, a 409 Conflict will be returned.

 

Example (1): Updating properties with RDF content

1.1 Perform a GET to the current container's RDF content
