Forums implements the following APIs:
Forums implements the Atom Syndication Format (Atom 1.0) to serve Atom feeds that you can use in your applications to search for and retrieve information from any of the forums created by the people in your organization. The format documented here is what feed readers use to discover updated content in a forum.
Forums implements the Atom Publishing Protocol to enable you to manipulate Forums content. Forums provides a service document and some category documents. The service document contains the currently authenticated user's collections and feeds. You can use the publishing APIs in your applications to perform actions, such as creating a forum. When interacting with forums to which you have owner access, you can retrieve more detailed information about the forum. You can also delete, restore, or update the forum and any of its topics. When interacting with forums to which you have author access, you can update, delete, and restore any forum topics that you authored; you can also add new topics.
