About

If you have not already liked a blog posting, you can do so by sending a request to the web address of the blog posting. Here's one easy way to do it with an asynchronous HTTP (Ajax) request using jQuery.

IBM Connections 4 documentation link: Liking a blog posting

URL

{host}/blogs/{blog-id}/api/recommend/entries/{entry-id}

Example:  

https://www.mysite.com/blogs/f3808be0-8a2e-741f546a3f97/api/recommend/entries/70-9a5e-4795-803c-48c8d

ResponseStatus Code: 200 OK
Example using jQuery

$.ajax({
	url : "https://www.mysite.com/blogs/f3808be0-8a2e-741f53f97/api/recommend/entries/70-9a5e-4795-803c-48c8d",
    type : "POST",
    async : true,
    statusCode : {
    	200 : function() {
			console.log('Liked');
        }
	},
    error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
		console.log(jqXHR + " - " + textStatus + ' - ' + errorThrown);
    }
});

Note:  console.log can throw errors in IE, they are there for illustrative purposes only and should be changed as required.
