When you create a model, the system automatically creates a powerful set of APIs, allowing you to retrieve, create, update, and delete data, as well as all sorts of other functionality to enable you to integrate with third-party applications.
There are five main methods that you can use to send a request: GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, and DELETE. See the table below for details on each method.
|Method name||Request meaning|
|GET||The GET method is one of the most common requests and requests data from a specified resource.|
|HEAD||The HEAD method is the same as the GET request but without the response body.|
|POST||The POST method is another common request and is used to send data to a specified resource to create a new entry.|
|PUT and PATCH||
The PUT and PATCH methods are used to replace and update (respectively) data stored for a specified resource in the database.
PUT = replace
PATCH = update
|DELETE||The DELETE method is used to delete data from a specified resource.|
The system APIs are in JSON, a common format for requesting and receiving data through REST APIs.
