What is the actual operation that’s performed when the following API endpoint is hit?
1
I’m unable to understand the description from the name, can someone please help here?
In the Example, within connectionConfiguration, we need to specify “user”. From where can I get the value of “user”?

It should be the same as
/v1/sources/update:
except this one is doing a check

Okay, but what should be the value of “user” within “connectionConfiguration”? And, are other fields also needed to be mentioned within connectionConfiguration?

there is no “user” field required, that’s just an example field
Copy code
The values required to configure the source. The schema for this must match the schema return by source_definition_specifications/get for the source.

I actually got the required fields to be put into connectionConfiguration when I used the API endpoint for get source 🙂
