set a comment when editing a page over REST


I am using the REST API `PUT /rest/api/content/{contentId}`. To edit a page.
However, I was unable to find an example on how to set the comment on the edit.

How can I do that?

I don't think you can do both an edit and set the comment in one call.

Sorry. I should have been more specific.

I mean the comment about what you changed.

I've been looking through the source code for 5.8.8 and it seems that through rest is not possible. I can dig up the action itself if you are interested (you can POST to the action), but I am convinced that /rest/api/content/{contentId} won't do what you want to do.

Too bad.

It's frustrating that you could do that with SOAP (deprecated) but not with REST.

updatePage(String token, Page  page, PageUpdateOptions pageUpdateOptions)

Any updates on this?

Ok, it works with recent versions. For the update page request, add a "message" property to "version", like this:

"version": {"number": latest_page_version + 1, "message": "Your message goes in here"}
