API Update Behavior

The behavior of the Graze API endpoints and MoogDb V2 methods depends on the status of the Situation they are acting on. The three relevant statuses are:

  • Open Situation: The Situation is open.

  • Closed Situation in active database: For a period of time after the Situation has been closed, it remains in the active database. This period of time is known as the "grace period".

  • Closed Situation in historic database: After the grace period has expired, the Situation is moved to the historic database.

Each API endpoint/method topic describes its behavior in these three Situation statuses.

See Configure Historic Data Retention for more information on the active and historic databases.
