Updating resources with the Go SDK

Here is an example update WorkGroup script which will update the description for the previously created Workgroup from Create a Resource:

package main

import (

sailpoint ""

func main() {

ctx := context.TODO()
configuration := sailpoint.NewDefaultConfiguration()
apiClient := sailpoint.NewAPIClient(configuration)

workgroup, r, err := apiClient.Beta.GovernanceGroupsApi.ListWorkgroups(ctx).Filters(`name eq "DB Access Governance Group"`).Execute()

if err != nil {
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "Error when retrieving workgroup`: %v\n", err)
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "Full HTTP response: %v\n", r)

updatedDescription := `This is an updated description for the workgroup.`
newDescriptionValue := beta.JsonPatchOperationValue{String: &updatedDescription}
patchArray := []beta.JsonPatchOperation{{Op: "replace", Path: "/description", Value: &newDescriptionValue}}

updatedWorkgroup, request, errorMessage := apiClient.Beta.GovernanceGroupsApi.PatchWorkgroup(ctx, *workgroup[0].Id).JsonPatchOperation(patchArray).Execute()

if errorMessage != nil {
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "Error when updating workgroup`: %v\n", errorMessage)
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "Full HTTP response: %v\n", request)

b, _ := json.MarshalIndent(updatedWorkgroup, "", " ")
fmt.Fprint(os.Stdout, string(b))


To run the code, run this command:

go run sdk.go

The updated WorkGroup will be returned by the SDK:
