Im tryin to do checkin major version through REST API.

This url is working just fine and I can do minor version checked in


but I cant get this one working

/sites/developersite/_api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Document')/Files/GetByUrl('file.docx')/CheckIn('Comment', 1)

Argument 1 suppose to be major version checkin type.

Documentation on MSDN says that second url should be working.

Error that Im getting when second url is used

   "code":"-1, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.InvalidClientQueryException",
      "value":"The expression \"web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Documents')/Files/GetByUrl('file.docx')/CheckIn('Comment',1)\" is not valid."

I haven't done that with REST before, but in this article he uses this syntax:

http://<site url>/_api/web/GetFileByServerRelativeUrl(
  '/Shared Documents/a.txt')/CheckOut()
http://<site url>/_api/web/GetFileByServerRelativeUrl(
  '/Shared Documents/a.txt')/CheckIn(comment='Comment', checkintype=0)
