#40720 new enhancement

REST API: more ambiguous strings ("The object...")

Reported by: jnylen0 Owned by:
Milestone: 5.8 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.7
Component: REST API Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch
Focuses: rest-api Cc:


[39342] clarified a lot of strings like "The caption for the resource." using more specific object types. However, there are still alot left that use "object" instead of "resource":


We should also update these to use more specific object types.

cc @ramiy in case you are interested in working on this for 4.8 - but to make it in, it needs a patch in the next day or so.
