Edit parameter values through API - how?

leon_pootleon_poot Member, Developers Posts: 87 ✭✭
How can I edit parameter values of Features in a Part Studio?
I'd like to be able to change these through the API, as opposed to the user having to change it in the Part Studio for each and every Feature.
I can read them with "Get Feature Specs", but I don't see a way of changing the feature specs...

Have I missed an API function somewhere in the list?

    Sorry that I missed your comments this weekend, @mbattistello and @joe_dunne. Thanks anyways.

    We figured it out, naturally "Update Feature" is the key API function.
    Deep down in the feature definition ("feature.message") the parameters are there.

    @leon_poot its in the docs on the dev site for the API. Look under the Feature List API. Towards the end they go thru this exact usage.
