University IT will perform maintenance on the Stanford Sites Drupal hosting service on the following date:
This maintenance requires switching Stanford Sites to using its secondary database server in preparation for upcoming maintenance on the university's network. Planned changes should result in improved stability and faster performance for all websites hosted on Stanford Sites. This maintenance does not include Drupal core application or module updates.
Stanford Web Services serves a diverse set of clients throughout Stanford University, ranging as large as schools to as small as individual labs. With over 200 active or completed website projects, and an average of 18 new project inquiries per month, we needed to implement a Customer Relationship Management system to track all of our operational data and communications.
In November, 2015, the Stanford Web Services team got to dive into Drupal 8 during a weeklong sprint. I was excited to look at the RESTful web services that Drupal 8 gives out-of-the-box; what follows is my documentation of the various types of requests supported, required headers, responses, and response codes.
This is not intended to be an exhaustive documentation of RESTful web services in Drupal 8. However, I have pulled information from various posts around the Web, and my own experimentation, into this post.
2015 has been amazing! Big thanks to all of our wonderful and devoted colleagues around the university and in the community. We wish you happy holidays over the winter break, and we'll see you in 2016!
