How do I update a list data_relation in Python Eve


I have a model 'users' and a schema for it, which includes a one-to-many relation back to users:

'followers': { 'type': 'list', 'schema': { 'type': 'objectid', 'data_relation': { 'resource': 'users' } } },

I am trying to update the list of followers. I tried sending PATCH request to the <strong>/users/545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1</strong> endpoint with a 'followers' key and a list of objectids but it doesn't work. Also tried sending a PUT request to <strong>/users/545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1/followers/</strong> but no luck.

So how do I add an object to this list with Python Eve REST API?

GET /users/545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1/ { "_updated": "Fri, 07 Nov 2014 08:07:40 GMT", "public_key": "test", "_etag": "256d6da738a0f39929d40d1c868e1f67661460be", "_links": { "self": { "href": "/users/545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1", "title": "User" }, "parent": { "href": "", "title": "home" }, "collection": { "href": "/users", "title": "users" } }, "active": false, "_created": "Fri, 07 Nov 2014 08:07:40 GMT", "_id": "545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1" } PATCH /users/545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1 { "_status": "ERR", "_error": { "message": "You don't have the permission to access the requested resource. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.", "code": 403 } } PUT /users/545c7dccb505970bbf0e5ad1/followers { "_status": "ERR", "_error": { "message": "The requested URL was not found on the server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.", "code": 404 } }


doesn't work is awfully broad... however at a guess you need to send your _etag token the server returned when fetching or creating the user... this is required to prevent updating from an out of date model
