API - update dataElement definitions


Dear all,

I am currently trying to change properties of existing DataElements via api
(esp. zeroIsSignificant). From the documentation I understand that I have to
read all significant metadata of the existing DataElement, change my property
and then push everything back via POST or PUT methods on
[/api/dataElements?strategy=UPDATE&mergeStrategy=MERGE] (Unfortunatly I can't
use the PATCH-method with my ETL tool)

Using this method, DHIS2 ignores the change, instead I get an importConflict
"Object already exists." in the result set.

Am I missing out on something?
