Updating resources with The TypeScript SDK

You can use the SDK to update resources.

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

import {Configuration, GovernanceGroupsBetaApi, GovernanceGroupsBetaApiCreateWorkgroupRequest, GovernanceGroupsBetaApiPatchWorkgroupRequest, PublicIdentitiesApi} from "sailpoint-api-client"

const updateWorkGroup = async () => {
let apiConfig = new Configuration()
let api = new GovernanceGroupsBetaApi(apiConfig)

let workgroup = (await api.listWorkgroups({filters: 'name eq "DB Access Governance Group"'})).data[0]

if ( !== undefined) {
let updatedWorkgroup: GovernanceGroupsBetaApiPatchWorkgroupRequest = {
jsonPatchOperationBeta: [{
op: "replace",
path: "/description",
value: "This is an updated description for the workgroup."
let val = await api.patchWorkgroup(updatedWorkgroup)
} else {
console.log("Workgroup was not found, id is missing for patch request.")


Run this command to compile and run the code:

tsc src/index.ts && node src/index.js

The updated WorkGroup will be returned by the SDK:
