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?

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"}

thanks this is working (server edition)

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.

Any updates on this?
