    How can I prevent subject from getting overridden when creating Favorite (bookmark) via REST API?

    cgum Intermediate

      In a Cloud add-on app, I'm trying to leverage Jive's bookmarks to deep link into content within my app.


      Here's an example of the JSON object I'm posting to /api/core/v3/contents:



        "type": "favorite",

        "status" : "published",

        "subject" : "fishing stuff",

        "content" : {

          "type" : "text/html",

          "text" : "This is all about fishing and stuff",

          "editable": true


        "favoriteObject": {

           "type": "url",

           "url": "https://myjiveinstance.jiveon.com/apps/my-app#canvas:{\"path\":\"content/view/fishing_stuff\"}",


        "tags": ["app_content_ec1e86ac-07a4-4b0b-a995-a40351527466"],

        "private": true


      My problem is that after I POST this to /api/core/v3/contents, the result shows that the subject has been changed to "Login | <Jive Instance Name>"


      In order to set the subject to what I want it to be, I have to get the newly created content URI, and do a second PUT with the same request body to /api/core/v3/contents/<contentID>.


      Is there any way to get around this?
