# Modifying

Updatable OData services support Create, Update and Delete operation for some or all exposed entities.

# Create an Entity

To create an entity in a collection, the client sends a POST request to that collection's URL. The POST body MUST contain a single valid entity representation. The request below creates a Person.

# Remove an Entity

The request below deletes the Person with ID 5.

# Update an Entity

Lodata supports PATCH to update an entity. The request below updates the Email of a person.

Related entities can be created at the same time as an entity. This is described as a deep insert.
