Using the Atom Publishing Protocol, also known as AtomPub, administrators can update profile entries or create and delete a profile.
The only supported methods for writing data to or modifying data in the Profiles database are by using this Profiles Atom administrative API, using the supplied Profiles TDI assembly lines, or by developing custom assembly lines using the connectors. Writing directly to the database, including using TDI database connectors to do so, is not supported and can lead to unforeseen consequences including data loss and application malfunction.
Creating a colleague connection using the Administration API
Profiles administrators may create colleague connections between people.
Deleting a colleague connection using the Administration API
To remove an existing colleague relationship, or to decline an invitation to become a colleague, use the HTTP DELETE method.
