Hi Bjoern

thanks for the reply. I previously did not find this in the API documentation but had a look now again (http://galaxy.readthedocs.org/en/master/api_doc.html#module-galaxy.webapps.galaxy.api) and found things have changed quite a bit (or did I miss something previously?)

I assume I need the lda_datasets module, but this does not contain an update functionality for the metadata (only for the permissions). An alternative would be the library_contents module which does have update but from the docs I’m not sure how to use this (e.g. what’s the trans parameter?). 

Any pointers to docs or examples?

Hi Frederik,

at least with the API this is possible!

Sorry for not being helpful at all!
