Users.dataSources.datasets: patch

Adds data points to a dataset. The dataset need not be previously created. All points within the given dataset will be returned with subsquent calls to retrieve this dataset. Data points can belong to more than one dataset.

This method does not use patch semantics: the data points provided are merely inserted, with no existing data replaced. Try it now.

Request

HTTP request

PATCH https://www.googleapis.com/fitness/v1/users/userId/dataSources/dataSourceId/datasets/datasetId

Parameters

Parameter name Value Description
Path parameters
dataSourceId string The data stream ID of the data source that created the dataset.
datasetId string This field is not used, and can be safely omitted.
userId string Patch a dataset for the person identified. Use me to indicate the authenticated user. Only me is supported at this time.

Authorization

This request requires authorization with at least one of the following scopes:

Request body

In the request body, supply the relevant portions of a Users.dataSources.datasets resource, according to the rules of patch semantics, with the following properties:

Property name Value Description Notes
Required Properties
dataSourceId string The data stream ID of the data source that created the points in this dataset.
maxEndTimeNs long The largest end time of all data points in this possibly partial representation of the dataset. Time is in nanoseconds from epoch. This should also match the second part of the dataset identifier.
minStartTimeNs long The smallest start time of all data points in this possibly partial representation of the dataset. Time is in nanoseconds from epoch. This should also match the first part of the dataset identifier.
point[] list A partial list of data points contained in the dataset, ordered by endTimeNanos. This list is considered complete when retrieving a small dataset and partial when patching a dataset or retrieving a dataset that is too large to include in a single response.
point[].dataTypeName string The data type defining the format of the values in this data point.
point[].endTimeNanos long The end time of the interval represented by this data point, in nanoseconds since epoch.
point[].startTimeNanos long The start time of the interval represented by this data point, in nanoseconds since epoch.
point[].value[] list Values of each data type field for the data point. It is expected that each value corresponding to a data type field will occur in the same order that the field is listed with in the data type specified in a data source.

Only one of integer and floating point fields will be populated, depending on the format enum value within data source's type field.

Response

If successful, this method returns a Users.dataSources.datasets resource in the response body.
