Request body

In the request body, supply the values for relevant fields that should be updated. Existing properties that are not included in the request body will maintain their previous values or be recalculated based on changes to other property values. For best performance you shouldn't include existing values that haven't changed.

Property Type Description
description string Description for the administrative unit.
displayName string Display name for the administrative unit.
visibility string Visibility for the administrative unit. If not set then the default is "public". Can be set to "HiddenMembership", which hides the membership from non-members.

Since the administrativeUnit resource supports extensions, you can use the PATCH operation to add, update, or delete your own app-specific data in custom properties of an extension in an existing administrativeUnit instance.


If successful, this method returns a 200 OK response code and updated administrativeUnit object in the response body.
