Custom API for document upload

Jump to solution

Hi,

I want to develop API in alfresco which will enable to upload documents in Alfresco repository along with custom metadata/properties. My current alfresco version is 5.2.

I found that this can be achieved by either CMIS APIs or REST APIs. Not sure which option is best for below  some sample requirement scenarios:

  1. Upload document with custom metadata/attributes/properties.
  2. Update custom metadata/attributes/properties.
  3. Increment version numbers if new file is uploaded for same document id.
  4. Initiate custom workflow based on document metadata/attributes/properties.
  5. Fetch only document metadata/attributes/properties OR file OR both by document unique id.
  6. Apply custome permissions to enable restricted access.

Hi,

Yes, you can use the Alfresco Content Services REST API for your examples (1 to 6).

To find out more, please see: 

Alfresco public REST APIs (provides links to various resources - including a useful tutorial)

REST API | Alfresco Documentation 

Alfresco Content Services REST API Explorer (with "Try it out" using public sandbox)

If you'd like to compare with CMIS then see also:

Alfresco CMIS  (also provides access to same public sandbox)
