When using this API in an IBM SmartCloud
™ for Social Business environment, note that certain differences might exist. For more information, see Communities API
in the IBM Social Business Development wiki.
You cannot share a link to a feed that requires authentication with a community.
All existing feed link 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 feed link, retrieve the existing tags, and send them all back with the new tag in the update request. See Retrieving a feed link
for more information.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
