PUT

Description

Modifies property values for a screen. Screens, primarily used as a container for hosting forms, contain three primary properties; each of these property values must be included in the request body of your API call (including values that aren’t being changed). Screen property values are:

  • hasUserData. Boolean value that indicates whether the screen displays user data. For example, the confirmAccountDeactivation screen does not display any user data; instead, it simply asks the user to verify that they really do want to deactivate their account. By default, only the editProfile and the emailVerificationRequired screens display user data.
     
  • modal. Boolean value that indicates whether the new screen is a “modal.” With a modal screen, the screen must be completed (or dismissed) before the user can do anything else. By default, all Identity Cloud screens have the modal property set to true except for the editProfile screen.
     
  • name. Name of the screen. The name value must be included in the request body even though you cannot change the name of a screen. If you omit the name, your call will fail with the following error:
{
    "errors": "Missing payload argument 'name'."
} 

An error will also occur if you attempt to change the name of the screen. For example, suppose you have a screen named testScreen and you try change the name to newRegistrationScreen. That API call will fail with this error:

{
    "errors": "Screen name in URL path and request body must match. Got 'testScreen' in the URL and 
    'newRegistrationScreen' in the request body."
} 

A typical request body will look similar to this:

{
    "hasUserData": false,
    "modal": true,
    "name": "testScreen"
}
