Updating a specific event via Action or HTTP call

Is it possible to change a specific event from an action or an HTTP call? I know I can add a new event to a stream with both of these methods, and I can edit an event manually.

I’d like to use a stream to store a set of values as a reference, but I need to be able to update them from an external system.


@iaburt - I think this is in your wheelhouse!

Hello Laclan,

You can update an event, see Octave REST API Documentation. You find the Event Update HTTP PUT.

I have also used the strategy of reading the current event, programmatically copying and changing the contents then adding a new event back into the stream with the changes. In that way, I keep a history of changes to the stored data in the stream.

I hope this helps.

Thanks @djudkins , that does help
