Using API (v2) to update a specific submission


I would like to update the validation field of a specific submission of my asset. I tried:

curl -X POST -H "Authorization: Token my-token" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{ "id": "aSUH9rFcHSpX6kurf5k9Fd","submission": { "meta": { "instanceID": "uuid:0e40f3aa-346f-40a6-ab78-9e2e182bb464", "deprecatedID": "uuid:0e40f3aa-346f-40a6-ab78-9e2e182bb464" } "_validation_status": { "by_whom":"my_user_name","timestamp":1610710761,"uid":"validation_status_on_hold","color":"#0000ff","label":"On Hold"} } }'

But the server response is:

{ "detail":"Method \"POST\" not allowed." }

Any ideas?

@Josh Can you provide any inputs whether this is possible through API v2?

Hi @timomohr, you can have a look the API docs in your browser for updating validation statuses here:{asset_uid}/data/

So in your case, you can visit:

From there you can see that to update the validation status of a submission you need to do the following request:

curl -X PATCH '{asset_uid}/data/{submission_id}/validation_status/' \
-H 'Authorization: Token {token}' \
-d 'validation_status.uid={status}'

Where valid statuses include:

  • validation_status_approved
  • validation_status_not_approved
  • validation_status_on_hold

(thanks @ks_1 for the ping)


You can remove the validation status of a submission by making a DELETE request to the same URL as above :+1:

I tried to request the validation status like this:

curl -X GET -H “Authorization: Token my-token”

The response is:

{“detail”:“Not found.”}

153648160 is the _id of the submission.

Besides, I tried to change the validation status with:

curl -X PATCH -H “Authorization: Token my-token” -d “validation_status.uid=validation_status_on_hold”

With this request I do not get any response and no change of the validation status.

Hi @timomohr, can you please send me a private message with your username so I can take a look :slightly_smiling_face:
