Datasets: patch

Requires authorization

Updates information in an existing dataset. The update method replaces the entire dataset resource, whereas the patch method only replaces fields that are provided in the submitted dataset resource. This method supports patch semantics.

Warning: If you specify an access list, you will completely overwrite the existing access list. If you specify an empty access list, you will revoke access to everyone except yourself; you cannot remove all owners from a dataset. To add to the access list, use a read-modify-write cycle.
