Using restful API, testing via below and command line:


You can use the swagger page to test out different curls etc. Everything on the page works except for changing/editing the metadata value for a node.

IE// I can the metadata group to the node (file). Would I not just use setPropertiesSimple on that node and use the okp.<groupname>.<field> and input the new value?

I can query the node and get all the metadata properties and their values, just can't seem to change? Any tips?
Code: Select all
curl -u <user>:<pass> -X POST "http://<internal>/OpenKM/services/rest/propertyGroup/setPropertiesSimple?nodeId=9934c690-ce23-4fd6-b397-4afcb917ed10&grpName=okg%3AIandT" -H "accept: application/json" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "{ \"list\": [ { \"name\": \"okp.IandT.issue\", \"value\": \"testing\" } ]}"
Like i said, i can accomplish everything else but this one thing, editing a files metadata values. Thanks in advance.

I got where was my fault. If someone else facing this issue wanna explain here;

In the code base there is a comment in setProperties-setPropertiesSimple API and it says:
The "properties" parameter comes in the POST request body (encoded as XML or JSON).

Its working with xml same as Jilort's answer above;
Code: Select all
curl -u okmAdmin:admin -H "Accept: application/json" \
  -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/xml" \
  -d '<simplePropertiesGroup><simplePropertyGroup><name>okp:technology.comment</name><value>RESTful rulez!</value></simplePropertyGroup></simplePropertiesGroup>' \
But NOT working when i try with json.
