Update a resource

A Resource can be updated by sending a PUT request to /resources/<resourceId>.json: The request body contains the new data to be updated. The request body schema is same than when creating a resource.

PUT /resources/<resourceId>.json
  "name": "<string>",
  "description": "<string>",
  "secrets": [{
    "user_id": "<userId-1>",
    "data": "<encrypted_password_using_user_1_public_key>"
  }, {
    "user_id": "<userId-n>",
    "data": "<encrypted_password_using_user_n_public_key>"

If the password you are updating has been shared with 7 users, the “secrets” key will need to be an array of 7 objects: You must encrypt and sign the new plaintext passwords using the recipient public key and the current user secret key. You can then create a list which include one object per user: the data key holds the encrypted plaintext password and user_id holds the user UUID.
