resource_update {ckanr}R Documentation

Update a resource's file attachment

Description

This function will only update a resource's file attachment and the metadata key "last_updated". Other metadata, such as name or description, are not updated.

The new file must exist on a local path. R objects have to be written to a file, e.g. using tempfile() - see example.

For convenience, CKAN base url and API key default to the global options, which are set by ckanr_setup.

Usage

resource_update(
  id,
  path,
  extras = list(),
  url = get_default_url(),
  key = get_default_key(),
  as = "list",
  ...
)

Arguments

id

(character) Resource ID to update (required)

path

(character) Local path of the file to upload (required)

extras

(list) - the resources' extra metadata fields (optional)

url

Base url to use. Default: https://data.ontario.ca/ See also ckanr_setup and get_default_url.

key

A privileged CKAN API key, Default: your key set with ckanr_setup

as

(character) One of list (default), table, or json. Parsing with table option uses jsonlite::fromJSON(..., simplifyDataFrame = TRUE), which attempts to parse data to data.frame's when possible, so the result can vary from a vector, list or data.frame. (required)

...

Curl args passed on to verb-POST (optional)

Value

The HTTP response from CKAN, formatted as list (default), table, or JSON.
