new_notesStringNew notes about the booking
new_resourcesQuantity & Resource ID | Resource NameNew resources to be added to the booking. Values should be passed as "qty|resource (ID or name)".
For example, to add 2 Tables to a booking, pass "2|Tables".
This parameter can be added multiple times to add further resources
Note: Passing the "new_resources" parameter will remove any previous resources that had been assigned to the booking
new_custom fieldsCustom valueIf you've defined custom booking fields in your MIDAS, you can optionally specify new values for these fields for the booking you're modifying.
For example, if you have a custom field named "Insurance", you would pass the parameter "new_insurance" together with the new value you wish to set
Optional ParametersPossible ValuesDescription
accept_limited_resources0 | 1If you're specifying new resources for a booking, this parameter determines whether the bookings should still be modified if the quantity of resources requested isn't available.
For example, if you add 10 Tables to a booking, yet only 5 Tables are available, an error will be returned and the booking won't be modified. However, passing the "accept_limited_resources" parameter with a value of "1" will continue the modify booking, but with reduced resource quantities (in the previous example, this would mean that only 5 Tables would be added to the booking, instead of the desired 10)
no_watches0 | 1Setting the "no_watches" parameter to "1" will suppress generation of Watch notifications for users who are monitoring modified bookings, otherwise omitting this parameter (or setting it to "0") will allow Watch notifications to be generated accordingly
