OperationDefinition resources are used to define special operations and named queries.

Operations can execute on three different levels:

  • system level (POST or GET [base]/[operation]),
  • resource type level (POST or GET [base]/[resource]/[operation]) or
  • instace level (POST or GET [base]/[resource]/[id]/[operation]).

It is specified on each OperationDefinition on what level and resourse it can be used. It is also specified on each resource in the guide if there are any operations available.
