To update a member in the access control list for an application, send a replacement member entry document in Atom format to the existing ACL node's edit web address.
All existing member 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 member entry, retrieve the existing tags, and send them all back with the new tag in the update request. See Retrieving members
for more information.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
