comment Putting a password in a REST API call
@CamilStaps You left one on the first answer and an identical one on the second answer. I expect you'll add the same ignorant and misleading comment to the following answers too (though I haven't got that far down the page yet).

@CamilStaps Will you stop going on about PUT. Firstly, you're modifying a user account, secondly, you're only changing a small aspect of that, so the correct method to use would be PATCH on a user resource, but as Christian Strempfer said, it's not that simple and when working with (pure) HTML forms you have to use POST, preferably with some method override mechanism in place.

@StevenBurnap You should not be sending the old password in the body. Use an Authorization header to convey existing credentials.

comment Tools aiding in documenting API requierements for a REST Service
The best requirement specification is a comprehensive test suite. However that may take longer to write than you are willing to give. I suggest you look through stackoverflow.com/questions/2001899/… as much is covered that that would be relevant. You target audience is a human, so human-readable descriptions will still be important.

comment How do I convert a list of Requirements into Constraints?
Okay, so I have now done a little additional reading around waterfalls and lean development, and to me it seems Agile and Lean are still based on Waterfall, just in smaller chunks ("one feature at a time", where feature could be a small class or a few new functions). The Requirements -> Design -> Implementation -> Test steps are still needed, and must be performed in that order.

comment How do I convert a list of Requirements into Constraints?
I don't have a clue what 'waterfall' is, so maybe I have been doing that for years, or maybe not. I am superficially familiar with extreme programming, agile development and user stories, (have read all the funny three column website about it) although I have never used the techniques. I am already trying to get user stories into the dev process but my boss is fighting me ("too many cooks spoil the broth"). I got a telling off yesterday just for asking the other staff, who will actually use the app, to provide me with some. In absence of those, I am doing what I can alone.
