Update Corpus Enablement API Definition

The Update Corpus Enablement endpoint lets you enable or disable a corpus. This is useful to manage the availability of data within the system, such as when you need to take the corpus offline without having to delete the corpus.

This capability can help you utilize automated scripts to programatically control the availability of corpora based on certain conditions. For example, quickly disable a corpus for maintenance updates or in response to security incidents.
