Replace a Permission

Performing a PUT operation on a specific permission resource replaces the entire user resource. All user settable properties, the id, permissionMode, and resource, must be submitted in the body to perform the replacement. While all settable properties have to be submitted in the request body, not all properties have to have changes. A new resource token is created upon successful replacement of the permission. The new resource token expires in one hour, which is the default period, unless overridden by using the x-ms-documentdb-expiry-seconds header.

Request

Method Request URI Description
PUT https://{databaseaccount}.documents.azure.com/dbs/{db-id}/users/{user-name}/permissions/{permission-name} Note that the {databaseaccount} is the name of the Azure Cosmos DB account created under your subscription. The {db-id} value is the user generated name/id of the database, not the system generated id (rid). The {user-name} value is the name of the user. The {permission-name} value is the name of the permission to be replaced.

Headers

See Common Azure Cosmos DB REST request headers for headers that are used by all Cosmos DB requests.

Header Required Type Description
x-ms-documentdb-expiry-seconds Optional Integer The validity period of the resource token returned by the operation. By default, a resource token is valid for one hour. To override the default, set this header with the desired validity period in seconds. The max override value is 18000, which is five hours.

Body

Property Required Description
id Required It is a unique name that identifies the permission, i.e. no two permissions owned by a user can share the same id. The ID must not exceed 255 characters
permissionMode Required The access mode on the resource for the user: All or Read. All provides read, write, and delete access to a resource. Read restricts the user to read access on the resource.
resource Required The full addressable path of the resource associated with the permission. For example, dbs/ruJjAA==/colls/ruJjAM9UnAA=/.
{  
    "id": "another_permission",  
    "permissionMode": "All",  
    "resource": "dbs/volcanodb/colls/volcano1"  
}

Status codes

The following table lists common status codes returned by this operation. For a full list of status codes, see HTTP Status Codes.

HTTP status code Description
200 Ok The replace operation was successful.
400 Bad Request The JSON body is invalid. Check for missing curly brackets or quotes. In addition, 400 is returned when at least one of the settable properties is not in the request body. Check to ensure all three settable properties are included.
404 Not Found The user to be replaced is no longer a resource, that is, the permission was deleted.
409 Conflict The ID provided for the permission has been taken by an existing permission. 409 is also returned when the new permission has already been assigned to another permission for the user.

Body

Property Description
_rid It is a system generated property. The resource ID (_rid) is a unique identifier that is also hierarchical per the resource stack on the resource model. It is used internally for placement and navigation of the permission resource.
_ts It is a system generated property. It specifies the last updated timestamp of the resource. The value is a timestamp.
_self It is a system generated property. It is the unique addressable URI for the resource.
_etag It is a system generated property that represents the resource etag required for optimistic concurrency control.
_token It is a system generated resource token for the particular resource and user.
