Working with profile tags using the Administration API


Using the Atom Publishing Protocol, also known as AtomPub, administrators can update profile entries or create and delete a profile.

Attention:
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 profile tags using the Administration API
Administrators can tag user profiles by sending an HTTP PUT request to the appropriate resource of the Administration API.

Retrieving profile tags using the Administration API
To retrieve the tags assigned to a profile from the Profiles tag collection, send an HTTP GET request to the appropriate resource of the Administration API to retrieve the tags category document for that profile.

Updating profile tags using the Administration API
To update the tags on a profile, send an HTTP PUT request to the appropriate resource of the Administration API.
