Working with profile codes 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 codes using Administration API
Profiles administrators can add a profiles code to the Profiles application.

Getting a feed of profiles codes using Administrative API
Retrieve a feed that lists all of the entries of a particular code type stored on the profiles server.

Updating profile codes using Administration API
To update a code definition, send an updated code entry document in Atom format to the appropriate resource of the Administration API.

Deleting profile codes using Administration API
