15:38 Texan if you have a RESTful api endpoint that's /something/activate, that causes something in the backend to change (but the user themselves don't have to provide anything other than hitting the activate endpoint), would you consider that a GET or a POST?
15:42 pdurbin Not a GET. It sounds like you're doing a write rather than a read. A GET is for a read, not for making a change.
15:43 Texan thanks pdurbin, i assumed it would be a PUT, but wanted to double check
15:43 Texan since it's an existing object* ^
15:46 pdurbin sounds fine. PUT is idempotent
