If we had a Project in our database with an Id of 11101 and the following properties.

Project 11101 Properties
	{
      "propertyName": "Approved Check Script",
      "propertyValue": "MyCheckScript"
   },

      "propertyValue": "MyURL"
   },
      {
      "propertyName": "ServiceNow User Name",
      "propertyValue": "MyUserName"

When we run a GET request at the following URL

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project/11101

The GET request would return the following JSON Project Property list

Project 11101 Properties GET Return JSON

Sample PUT JSON Request
[
      {
      "propertyName": "Approved Check Script",
      "propertyValue": "MyCheckScript"
   },
      {
      "propertyName": "ServiceNow Password",

   },
      {
      "propertyName": "ServiceNow User Name",
      "propertyValue": "MyUserName"
   }
]

When we run a PUT request at the following URL

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project/25262

And the PUT request receives the following JSON Project Properties list

Project 25262 Property PUT Receive JSON
[
      {
      "propertyName": "Approved Check Script",
      "propertyValue": "Put1"

   },
      {
