To update a stand-alone forum, send an updated forum document in Atom format to the existing forum's edit web address.
All existing forum entry metadata will be replaced with the new data. To avoid deleting all existing data, retrieve any data you want to retain first, and send it back with this request. See Retrieving forums
for more information.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
If you want to lock the forum, add the element <category scheme="http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/sn/flags" term="locked"/> in the forum entry that you pass in as input. If you want to unlock a forum, remove the same element from the forum entry that you pass in as input.
