Updating the Traffic Director (DSF) service instance using the API requires specific syntax depending on whether you are using REST or SOAP. Use this table to find the syntax for your command.

NOTE: Total number of records in a single Response Pool may not be more than 255.

WARNING: Dyn recommends setting an explicit fallback record entry in all Traffic Director services to ensure a query is always answered with a record. See TD Best Practices – Fallback Entry for more information on setting up a fall back entry.
