I had a question on the links that get included when a relation is being loaded with the resource. In the documentation examples, there are two links included for relationships:
I was wondering if someone could shed a little light on the use cases for each one. When would the self link get used over the related link and vice versa ? I read that the “relationships” link can be used to directly manipulate the relation itself. Should relationships only be manipulated on a link like this and not the other? Is there any difference in the responses? Is the related link only for GET requests? Is there any overlap?
I could be over thinking it.
