Update or Deactivate DID

Update or deactivate a DID

Users are able to update DID Documents for various reasons, such as to include a new section or to rotate the Verification Method keys within the DID Document.

With the /did/update API, users are able to input either:

  1. The section of the DID Document they would like to update; or

  2. The full updated DID Document body.

Users are also able to deactivate DID Documents to prevent further updates and to provide client applications the relevant information that the DID Document is no longer actively used.

A /did/deactivate request must be signed by all of the Verification Method keys listed in the DID Document.
