This page returns a paginated list of all Collections.

The HTTP POST operation is allowed in order to create a new Collection instance; a single Collection may be created per POST. The ability to POST depends upon user account permissions.

Filtering by Resource owner and/or Resource is available using the 'username' and 'resource' GET parameters. The 'resource' GET parameter takes an integer value, corresponding to the internal id of the Resource. Example: https://specimens.cancer.gov/api/collection/?username=jdoe&resource=12

Nested collections are identified uniquely by the "name" field.

The 'resource' element in the POST data must be the full API URL of the desired Resource to which the Collection belongs. Example: https://specimens.cancer.gov/api/resource/12/

Resource Attachments (files) may not be created here. They must be added in a separate step via the Resource Attachment API.
