This method only works on GRB events; i.e., External or Test events
whose search is specified as 'GRB'.
Only LIGO/Virgo users with permission to update GRB events will be
able to utilize this method.
graceid (str): GraceDB ID of the existing event
ra (:obj:`float`, optional): right ascension (degrees)
dec (:obj:`float`, optional): declination (degrees)
error_radius (:obj:`float`, optional): uncertainty in position
as statistical ~1-sigma error radius from the reported right
ascension and declination (degrees)
t90 (:obj:`float`, optional): duration of the event in which 90%
of the gamma-ray burst fluence was accumulated (seconds)
redshift (:obj:`float`, optional): redshift
designation (:obj:`str`, optional): name of the event, typically
reported in GRByymmddx (where x is null, 'A', or 'B') or
GRByymmddfff format, where fff is the three-digit fraction
