Getting started

In this How-To we will query for all files in our „root“ Folder.
To query for files inside a folder we have the rest method: /rest/folders/ID/files
But first we need to find the id of the „root“ folder. For this we have the method: /rest/folders

Step 1

Request:

GET/rest/folders

Response:

 [
  {
    "id": 225819,
    "name": "Root",
    "description": "",
    "createdDate": "1456134890111",
    "modifiedDate": "1456134891544",
    "createdUser": null,
    "modifiedUser": {
      "id": 225822,
      "username": "REST.DEMO",
      "firstname": "Demo",
      "lastname": "Demonicum",
      "type": "user"
    },
    "parent": null,
    "status": {
      "published": false,
      "locked": false,
      "type": "status"
    },
    "sharedLink": {
      "url": null,
      "passwordEnabled": false,
      "password": null,
      "expirationDate": null,
      "canEdit": false,
      "type": "link"
    },
    "type": "folder"
  }
]

Step 2

Extract the „id“ field value and send the request to query for files.

Request:

GET /rest/folders7225819/files

Response:
