Hints on using alert definitions from the API

Basically I want to update an alert definition.

Anyone managed to get the PUT call working?

All I want to do is update the USER with an API call - move it from userA to userB say.

But I keep getting a 400 error:


  "message": "Resource of type com.fortify.server.platform.types.AlertDefinitionDto contained invalid or incompatible data in these field(s): 'projectVersionIds','monitorAllApps','monitoredEntityType','recipientType'",
  "responseCode": 400,
  "errorCode": -20117

Now - I basically used GET to get a specific ID.
Then took the data part, used as body, PUT it .. I get that error.

This doesnt make sense.

The projectVersionIds is null - which is a valid value.

Here's what comes out of the GET for id 35 ... and putting it straight back hits above error - doesnt make sense to me.
