Collection+JSON Extensions

1.0 Command Templates

Clients that support the Collection+JSON media type MAY be able to recognize and parse command templates found within responses. Command templates MAY consist of a data array associated with an href property. The commands array supports command templates.

For command templates, the name/value pairs of the data array set are sent as JSON in the body ({"id": 1, "members_to_notify": "all"}) or multipart/form-data, both via an HTTP POST.

2.0 commands

The commands array is an OPTIONAL top-level property of the Collection+JSON document.

The commands array SHOULD contain one or more anonymous objects. Each object composed of five possible properties: href (REQUIRED), rel (REQUIRED), name (OPTIONAL), prompt (OPTIONAL), and a data array (OPTIONAL).

If present, the data array represents command parameters for the associated href property of the same object. See Command Templates for details.
