Web Service Method: Suggest Free Concept

Warning

This service is outdated. Please use Web Service Method: Suggest Concept instead.

Allows to suggest a new concept. The service returns the generated URI of the created concept that appears under "Suggested Concepts" in the targeted project in tab "Workflow Dashboard". Since the suggested concept is not part of the thesaurus, it is called "free concept".

URL: /PoolParty/api/thesaurus/{project}/suggestFreeConcept

Note

A prefLabel in the default language has to be provided. Only labels in languages can be suggested that are defined as project language.

Note

If you want to create a narrower concept directly, without using the Suggested Concepts List, you may consider to use Web Service Method: Create New Concept.
