Module: JSS::Updatable

Overview

A mix-in module that allows objects to be updated in the JSS via the API.

When a JSS::APIObject subclass includes this module, instances of that subclass can be modified in the JSS using the #update or APIObject#save methods.

Such classes should define setter methods for any values that they wish to modify, such as the #name= method defined here. Those setter methods must:

  • ensure the validity of the data they accept.

  • set @need_to_update to true, indicating that the local object no longer matches the JSS, and the changes should be pushed to the server with #update

Classes mixing this module must provide a #rest_xml instance method that returns the XML String to be submitted to the API for object updating.
