    Is there any plans to include / support a partial update of data/records via the APIs?

    It would be very useful to simply ‘PATCH’ an attribute to a user for instance, rather than need to GET then POST for a fresh update.

    I would think this would also unburden the API gateways in many cases, as the payloads would typically be smaller.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Ben,
    Indeed PATCH can be useful, and we might add support for it in the future. It is not a simple task, so I can’t say more than that currently.
