Never heard of the UPDATE verb and don't see it in any specs..? Am I missing out on something here? developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/W...

Me neither, maybe it's the PATCH verb, and PUT creates or replaces a whole ressource, so it would give sth like:

  • PUT: update a transaction
  • PATCH: update a part of a transaction

Yes! Thank you, it is PUT and PATCH.
