REST API: GET collection fields
Warning: You are viewing the documentation for the old REST API. We recommend using version 2 of the REST API.
A collection is a nested second layer within a database, that also contains fields. To fetch these fields an HTTP GET request can be made to the following URL:
$id should be replaced by the unique numerical identifier of the collection
you want to get the fields from.
The following parameters can be added to the URL as variables for the request:
- start: first field to request
- limit: length of the request batch
- total: boolean value for showing available fields
More information about the use of these parameters can be found in the article on paging.
This method returns a list of fields from the database. Each field object contains the following information:
- ID: numerical field ID
- name: field name
- type: field type
The following PHP script shows an example of how to call this method with the API:
// dependencies require_once('copernica_rest_api.php'); // change this into your access token $api = new CopernicaRestApi("your-access-token"); // parameters to pass to the call $parameters = array( 'limit' => 100 ); // do the call, and print result print_r($api->get("collection/1234/fields", $parameters));
The example above requires the CopernicaRestApi class.
