Usage of /answers/{id}/flags/add POST


Casts a flag against the answer identified by id.

The available flag_options on a answer are not constant, and must be fetched from /answers/{id}/flag/options.

Use an access_token with write_access to create a flag.

Note that the addition of is_retraction 2.3 to flag_options means that POSTing an existing Flag Id through when is_retraction is true will retract the flag instead of returning an error (as had happened in previous versions).

This method returns the answer being flagged.
