Update an item in a collection. The collection should be in the stash key collection, and the item's ID in the stash key id. The updated item should be in the request body as JSON.

delete_item

Delete an item from a collection. The collection name should be in the stash key collection. The ID of the item should be in the stash key id.

SUBCLASSING

To change how the API provides access to the data in your database, you can create a custom controller. To do so, you should extend this class and override the desired methods to provide the desired functionality.

    package MyApp::Controller::CustomYancy;
    use Mojo::Base 'Yancy::Controller::Yancy';
    sub list_items {
        my ( $c ) = @_;
        return unless $c->openapi->valid_input;
        my $items = $c->yancy->backend->list( $c->stash( 'collection' ) );
        return $c->render(
            status => 200,
            openapi => $items,
        );
    }

    package main;
    use Mojolicious::Lite;
    push @{ app->routes->namespaces }, 'MyApp::Controller';
    plugin Yancy => {
        controller_class => 'CustomYancy',
    };

For an example, you could extend this class to add authorization based on your own requirements.
