Params

To update a tag, a data body must be provided. Data can be provided in three formats: XML, JSON and query string. To specify data type of XML or JSON add the Content-type: application/(json|xml) header to request headers, if you want to provide query string simply skip the Content-type header.

All params should be sent in the tag namespace, e.g.:

XML

<tag>
  <name>newname</name>
  <state>1</state>
</tag>

JSON

{"tag":{"name":"newname", "state":1}}

Query string

tag[name]=newname&tag[state]=1
