REST API Method: POST /rest/partition/{identifier}?action=upgrade

This action causes the SBC Edge system to be upgraded to a new software version.

If the system is being upgraded to a new software image, the upgrade needs to be performed on the non-active partition (either partition 2 or 3). If the boot partition is being upgraded, the action needs to be performed on partition 1.

An HTTP Status 200 return for this action only means that the request was successfully received by the system and some pre-validation is performed. The upgrade process can take a while and so it is the responsibility of the client to perform HTTP_GET requests on the Partition Resource and check on the status by inspecting the rt_Download_Result_Code attribute.
