To update a bookmark, send a replacement bookmark entry document in Atom format to the existing bookmark's edit web address.
If the bookmark's web address is changed, the edit web address of the bookmark resource is changed as well.
All existing bookmark 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 bookmark entry, retrieve the existing tags, and send them all back with the new tag in the update request. See Retrieving bookmarks
for more information.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
