Updates the specified document. This method is a long-running operation. The returned Operation type has the following method-specific fields: - metadata: KnowledgeOperationMetadata - response: Document


You will need authorization for at least one of the following scopes to make a valid call:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform
  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/dialogflow

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform. You can set the scope for this method like this: dialogflow2 --scope <scope> projects knowledge-bases-documents-patch ...

Required Scalar Argument

  • <name> (string)
    • Optional. The document resource name. The name must be empty when creating a document. Format: projects//locations//knowledgeBases//documents/.

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

  content-uri: string
  display-name: string
  enable-auto-reload: boolean
  knowledge-types: [string]
      code: integer
      message: string
    time: string
  metadata: { string: string }
  mime-type: string
  name: string
  raw-content: string
  state: string

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . content-uri=sea
    • The URI where the file content is located. For documents stored in Google Cloud Storage, these URIs must have the form gs:///. NOTE: External URLs must correspond to public webpages, i.e., they must be indexed by Google Search. In particular, URLs for showing documents in Google Cloud Storage (i.e. the URL in your browser) are not supported. Instead use the gs:// format URI described above.
  • display-name=et
    • Required. The display name of the document. The name must be 1024 bytes or less; otherwise, the creation request fails.
  • enable-auto-reload=false
    • Optional. If true, we try to automatically reload the document every day (at a time picked by the system). If false or unspecified, we don't try to automatically reload the document. Currently you can only enable automatic reload for documents sourced from a public url, see source field for the source types. Reload status can be tracked in latest_reload_status. If a reload fails, we will keep the document unchanged. If a reload fails with internal errors, the system will try to reload the document on the next day. If a reload fails with non-retriable errors (e.g. PERMISSION_DENIED), the system will not try to reload the document anymore. You need to manually reload the document successfully by calling ReloadDocument and clear the errors.
  • knowledge-types=takimata
    • Required. The knowledge type of document content.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • latest-reload-status.status code=31
    • The status code, which should be an enum value of google.rpc.Code.
  • message=tempor

    • A developer-facing error message, which should be in English. Any user-facing error message should be localized and sent in the google.rpc.Status.details field, or localized by the client.
  • .. time=clita

    • The time of a reload attempt. This reload may have been triggered automatically or manually and may not have succeeded.
  • .. metadata=key=sed

    • Optional. Metadata for the document. The metadata supports arbitrary key-value pairs. Suggested use cases include storing a document's title, an external URL distinct from the document's content_uri, etc. The max size of a key or a value of the metadata is 1024 bytes.
    • the value will be associated with the given key
  • mime-type=no
    • Required. The MIME type of this document.
  • name=stet
    • Optional. The document resource name. The name must be empty when creating a document. Format: projects//locations//knowledgeBases//documents/.
  • raw-content=sea
    • The raw content of the document. This field is only permitted for EXTRACTIVE_QA and FAQ knowledge types.
  • state=clita
    • Output only. The current state of the document.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional Method Properties

You may set the following properties to further configure the call. Please note that -p is followed by one or more key-value-pairs, and is called like this -p k1=v1 k2=v2 even though the listing below repeats the -p for completeness.

  • -p update-mask=string
    • Optional. Not specified means update all. Currently, only display_name can be updated, an InvalidArgument will be returned for attempting to update other fields.

Optional General Properties

The following properties can configure any call, and are not specific to this method.

  • -p $-xgafv=string

    • V1 error format.
  • -p access-token=string

    • OAuth access token.
  • -p alt=string

    • Data format for response.
  • -p callback=string

    • JSONP
  • -p fields=string

    • Selector specifying which fields to include in a partial response.
  • -p key=string

    • API key. Your API key identifies your project and provides you with API access, quota, and reports. Required unless you provide an OAuth 2.0 token.
  • -p oauth-token=string

    • OAuth 2.0 token for the current user.
  • -p pretty-print=boolean

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
  • -p quota-user=string

    • Available to use for quota purposes for server-side applications. Can be any arbitrary string assigned to a user, but should not exceed 40 characters.
  • -p upload-type=string

    • Legacy upload protocol for media (e.g. "media", "multipart").
  • -p upload-protocol=string

    • Upload protocol for media (e.g. "raw", "multipart").
