Update Web App Item

Update a web app item. The update can be full (sending all properties), or partial (sending just the ones that need updating). Sending a property with a null value or not sending it at all has the same effect: it will not be changed.

    • Note: When building apps always use relative request URLs. Do not use the "full" URL above because you might have problems running your app on a different site as the site_ID parameter will be different.

    • Alternatively, use "current" instead of [siteId]
