HATEOAS: how to POST new child association via URI

You cannot do it using hateos cause the post request will try to link these child entities using the link you provided “http://localhost:8080/api/materials/1”

the other option is to put the whole entity, but it also will not succeed without providing the id, it will rather create a new entity.

After issuing the “post” request, it will first search for the ID or maybe also the version, if you provided one, and if nothing found it will create a new child entity
