Changes an existing entry.
If values are being added to or replaced in the entry, the function creates the attribute, if necessary. If values are being deleted, the function removes the attribute if no values remain.

Sample JSON for structure:

    "operation": "Add",
    "type": "xxx",
    "values": ["Hello", "World"]
    "operation": "Replace",
    "type": "yyy",
    "value": "Other"
    "operation": "Delete",
    "type": "zzz"

Version 10.1 or newer accepts name instead of type for the key to match the search results.
