Update a business unit with the REST API

This use case scenario provides the Identity REST API request for updating a business unit.

Send the following request to update a business unit:


You must set partial=true or the request overwrites all existing business units.

http --auth-type=veracode_hmac PUT "{businessUnitId}?partial=true" < input.json

businessUnitId is the numeric ID, separated with hyphens, for the target business unit. For example: 7336556f-9ef2-4a1c-b536-be8608822db6.

The API passes the JSON file that you populate with the necessary values as shown in this example payload:

"bu_name": "My business unit"
