Unknown SDK


Updates the role object in Kuzzle.

Unlike a regular document update, this method will replace the whole role definition under the indexes node with the updateContent parameter.
In other words, you always need to provide the complete role definition in the updateContent object.

This method has the same effect as calling [`setContent`](/sdk/js/5/core-classes/role/set-content) followed by the [`save`](/sdk/js/5/core-classes/role/save) method.

To get more information about Kuzzle permissions, please refer to our permissions guide.
