Exam Put vs POST

Hi, I've found myself getting a bit confused as to when the appropriate time to use a PUT vs POST when going about the labs. I'm noticing very subtle differences, primarily around server config state, but it seems that most operations are (relatively) interchangeable.

Does the exam care which you use? I'd rather catch a potential bad habit early on if it does indeed matter.

Hello @Matt_Clairmont,

This is a great answer to your question:

  • POST: auto-generation of ids
  • PUT: specify an id

Thanks for referring me to that post. I did come across it prior to posting my question, but it doesn't cover if the exam grades on the different/correct usage. I'm still figuring out how each is applied throughout the course since I seem to match the rest of the solution, but get the verb incorrect.
