API – [v2.10.0]

In this release of the API, we add support for partial transfers. Partial transfers allow you to portion a percentage of an expense from one resource to another. 

Using children as an example; you buy a cot for your child, later, when you have a second child you can transfer 50% of the expense to the second child if you reuse the furniture.

Added 

  • We have added a new route, `/resource_types/[id]/resources/[id]/items/[id]/partial-transfer`; A partial transfer allows you to transfer a percentage of the `total` for an item from one resource to another.
  • We have added an `item_transfer` table; the table will log which items were transferred and by whom.
  • We have added a partial transfers collection; the route is `/resource_types/[id]/partial-transfers`.
  • We have added a partial transfers item view; the route is `/resource_types/[id]/partial-transfers/[id]`.
  • We have added a transfers collection; the route is `/resource_types/[id]/transfers`.
  • We have added a transfers item view; the route is `/resource_types/[id]/transfers/[id]`.
  • We have added a delete endpoint for partial transfers.

Changed

  • We have reformatted the validation rules in the configuration files; easier to read and simpler to add additional rules.
  • We have switched the HTTP status code for a “Constraint error” from 500 to 409.
  • We have tweaked the description for the resource field in the `/resource_types/[id]/resources/[id]/items/[id]/transfer` OPTIONS request.
  • We have renamed the third parameter of the route validation methods; we changed the name from `$manage` to `$write`.
  • We have renamed a response helper method; it was not clear from the name that the method is used for updates and delete.

Fixed

  • It is possible to set the quantity for a `simple-item` item as zero.
  • It is possible to clear optional values in a PATCH request.
