Here are some examples of the id and Path endpoints.

id Endpoint

Path Description
GET /api/v1/id/{idOfTheDoc} Finds a document by its id
PUT /api/v1/id/{idOfTheDoc} Updates a document by its id
POST /api/v1/id/{idOfTheDoc} Updates a document by its id
DELETE /api/v1/id/{idOfTheDoc} Deletes a document by its id
GET /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/id/{docId} Find a document by its id in a specific repository
PUT /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/id/{docId} Updates a document by its id in a specific repository
POST /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/id/{docId} Updates a document by its id in a specific repository
DELETE /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/id/{docId} Deletes a document by its id in a specific repository

Properties

In addition to the docId and repoId parameters, the id endpoint accepts the definition of a document object. See the page REST API Entity Types and the examples below.

Path Endpoint

Path Endpoint
GET /api/v1/path/{docPath} Finds a document by its path
PUT /api/v1/path/{docPath} Updates a document by its path
DELETE /api/v1/path/{docPath} Deletes a document by its path
POST /api/v1/path/{docPath} Creates a document by its parent path
GET /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/path/{docPath} Finds a document in a specific repository by its path
PUT /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/path/{docPath} Updates a document in a specific repository by its path
DELETE /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/path/{docPath} Deletes a document in a specific repository by its path
POST /api/v1/repo/{repoId}/path/{docPath} Creates a document in a specific repository by its parent path

Properties

The path endpoint only takes the docPath and repoId parameters. It can however be leveraged with web adapters such as @children, @search, @bo. See REST API Web Adapters for more detailed information.

Examples

Creating a Document

To create a new document under the current resource, send a POST request with the following data:

POST http://NUXEO_SERVER/nuxeo/api/v1/id/{idOfParentDoc}
{
    "entity-type": "document",
    "name":"newDoc",
    "type": "File",
    "properties": {
        "dc:title": "The new document",
        "dc:description": "Created via a very cool and easy REST API",
        "common:icon": "/icons/file.gif",
        "common:icon-expanded": null,
        "common:size": null
    }
}

In this case, the ID of the document is the parent document's ID, and the name property in the entity stands for the name of the newly created document. You don't need to specify a UID since the session will create one for you. It will be returned in the response.

Updating a Document

To update a document, use PUT on the document resource and pass a reduced version of the entity type content as data. You could pass the full set of data but it's not mandatory.

PUT Request

    PUT http://NUXEO_SERVER/nuxeo/api/v1/id/{idOfTheDoc}
    {
        "entity-type": "document",
        "repository": "default",
        "uid": "37b1502b-26ff-430f-9f20-4bd0d803191e",
        "properties": {
            "dc:title": "The new title",
            "dc:description": "Updated via a very cool and easy REST API",
            "common:icon": "/icons/file.gif",
            "common:icon-expanded": null,
            "common:size": null
        }
    }

Deleting a Document

DELETE http://NUXEO_SERVER/nuxeo/api/v1/id/{idOfTheDoc}
