Updates a specific question written by the current user.

Required Scalar Argument

  • <name> (string)
    • The name of the question to update.

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:

    display-name: string
    profile-photo-url: string
    type: string
  create-time: string
  name: string
  text: string
  total-answer-count: integer
  update-time: string
  upvote-count: integer

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 .author display-name=ea
    • The display name of the user
  • profile-photo-url=dolore
    • The profile photo URL of the user.
  • type=ipsum

    • The type of user the author is.
  • .. create-time=ea

    • Output only. The timestamp for when the question was written.
  • name=at
    • Output only. The unique name for the question. accounts//locations//questions/*
  • text=sit
    • The text of the question. It should contain at least two words and the total length should be greater than or equal to 10 characters. The maximum length is 4096 characters.
  • total-answer-count=3
    • Output only. The total number of answers posted for this question.
  • update-time=lorem
    • Output only. The timestamp for when the question was last modified.
  • upvote-count=86
    • Output only. The number of upvotes for the question.

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 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").
