Before you start

Overlay

Content API uses an overlay system. Every time you update an existing property, room type, or other object, the body of your request replaces whatever information was stored in our servers at that time. This means existing information may be deleted if you don't include it in your request.

To update an object without deleting information, make sure your request contains both the fields you want to update and those you want to keep the same. Copy/paste sample requests from this page at your own risk.
