< I apologize for asking api questions over and over but every time I try something new I do something wrong. >

I'm trying to modify a record in the DB for the first time.  I need to get a season record, update the LastPlayedDate field, and post it back.  I'm requesting a season which returns an array of episode items.  I'm assuming each array entry is an episode record.  Here is the season request and results.  ...

http://<hostname>:8096/emby/Users/<userid>/Items/?ParentId=4561960&X-Emby-Token=<token>

{Items: [
  {
    "Name": "Pilot",
    "ServerId": "ae3349983dbe45d9aa1d317a7753483e",
    "Id": "4696734",
    "RunTimeTicks": 13184140000,
    "IndexNumber": 1,
    "ParentIndexNumber": 1,
    "IsFolder": false,
    "Type": "Episode",
    "ParentLogoItemId": "4561949",
    "ParentBackdropItemId": "4561949",
    "ParentBackdropImageTags": [
        "786971cdc9919551425f498a1ead8783"
    ],
    "UserData": {
        "PlaybackPositionTicks": 0,
        "PlayCount": 1,
        "IsFavorite": false,
        "LastPlayedDate": "2023-01-25T00:02:37.779Z",
        "Played": true
    },
    "SeriesName": "Abbott Elementary",
    "SeriesId": "4561949",
    "SeasonId": "4561960",
    "SeriesPrimaryImageTag": "894e368f93870dc80e407f7b06f130bc",
    "SeasonName": "Season 1",
    "ImageTags": {
        "Primary": "be6f958aabf8e60740600c544c7877a2"
    },
    "BackdropImageTags": [],
    "ParentLogoImageTag": "48461820ad1d9e3c9b1a522b2d9fe9f8",
    "MediaType": "Video"
  }, 
  {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}
],
TotalRecordCount:13}

Now I take this record and update LastPlayedDate to the current date "2023-01-25T00:34:59.505Z".  Then I try to post it.  The payload is the json version of the modified record.  You can see I'm getting a 404.  Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Request URL: http://<hostname>:8096/emby/Users/<user id>/Items/?Id=4696734&X-Emby-Token=<token>
Request Method: POST
Status Code: 404 Not Found
Remote Address: 192.168.1.103:8096
Referrer Policy: strict-origin-when-cross-origin

I have used "/Items?Id=<id>" for all my GETs so I assumed it would work here with a POST payload of the entire record.  I tried the format you show, "/Items/<id>/UserData" and this worked.  It also has the advantage of only having to POST the UserData instead of the whole record.  So thanks.  I'll get in the habit of using  "/Items/Id" everywhere now.

P.S.  How did you get swagger to work?  It has never worked for me.  I get the error: "Fetch error, Possible mixed-content issue? ... ".  There was a thread here some time ago about this problem and it was concluded that the problem was insurmountable.  Can you please tell me what browser URL you used and what you put in the Explore text box at the top of the page?

That is the browser CORS issue, you can add localIP:port url to the browser flags.  Otherwise requires localhost or https connection.

Just make sure you retrieve all the UserData for the item, alter what you need and post back all the UseData.  Otherwise it will put null values back.
