The version resource represents a single version under the Version Management service that returns information about the version and supports many operations. The version is accessed using the versionGuid value that is obtained from the versions resource.

The following table lists the read and edit session version operation requirements for the version resource:

  • Read and edit sessions are established using the startReading and startEditing operations. Operations that require an edit session must call startReading first.
  • To start editing, the portal user must be the only user currently accessing the version.
