Firstly, we run through all the different CRUD operations and their relevant verbs for developing API integration.
Thereafter, we go ahead and identity the difference between a full update (HTTP PUT verb) and a partial update (HTTP PATCH verb). We explain a situation where doing a full update might not be a good idea.
We have created an ASP.NET Core MVC API application to test out the PATCH verb. We go through the code, run the application and then test the method in Postman.
Finally, we discuss that this method will reduce the risk of overwriting data and talk about ways where you can eliminate it.
