All existing community entry information 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. For example, if you want to add a new tag to a community entry, retrieve the existing tags, and send them all back with the new tag in the update request. See Retrieving a community
for more information.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
