Setting create_date and modify_date using REST API

Posted Feb 11 by David Anderson.

I am using the Content Server REST API to upload documents from a file share. I want to add the set the create_date and modify_date to the existing values from the file system. Is there a way to do that?

I see in the documentation that I can provide values for external_create_date and external_modify_date, but these do not set the create_date and modify_date of the document.

these dates are set by the system to ensure Auditing, RM etc are correct and so can't be changed via the simple API methods.

Thanks Greg, that makes sense. Is it possible to use a different API (e.g. CWS) to set the dates? I know it can be done with Object Importer, so I wonder if that capability is accessible to developers via a published API, or if Object Importer uses an unpublished API for setting the dates.
