I haven’t used that API endpoint, but for all of the ones that can take an array of values, for example accessing resources with id_set[] param, the URL syntax is something like:


so for that endpoint, you probably want to append “?id[]=2” to the URL.

And if you’re using curl, remember to use the ‘-g’ (glob off) option so it doesn’t interpret “[]” internally.

Hi everybody-

I'm trying to batch update container_profiles assigned to top_containers using the API endpoint documented here:


... and I'm having trouble passing the 'ids' parameter. The data type for this parameter is '[Integer]' (with the brackets). Everything I try results in an error complaining that the value I sent is a string and not an [Integer], eg:

"Wanted type [Integer] but got '2'"
"Wanted type [Integer] but got '[2]'"

Can anyone explain how to correctly format the parameters for this? Any insight is appreciated.

(BTW - we're using version 1.5.1.)
