Fetching an Updated Manifest After Some Items Have Been Processed

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

The following examples use the SEARCH Method to fetch the updated Manifest of a Collection from the server after some resources have been processed by the client. The collblob and resourcetag values were obtained previously when the Manifest of a Collection was first requested. See Client Has Processed Some Items and Needs an Updated Manifest and Authentication and Security Using WebDAV for more information.
