REST API: POST view views

Warning: You are viewing the documentation for the old REST API. We recommend using version 2 of the REST API.

Copernica supports nested selections. To edit a nested selection you can send a HTTP POST request to the following URL:$id/views?access_token=xxxx

The first $id needs to be replaced by the numerical identifier of the upper selection and the second $id by the lower selection. After a successful call the ID of the created request is returned.

Available parameters

The following parameters can be added to the message body. Note that because this is a nested view it has the exact same properties as a regular view.

  • name: Name of the selection
  • description: Description of the selection
  • parent-type: Type of the parent; does the selection belong to another selection or a database?
  • parent-id: ID of the parent
  • has-children: Boolean value that indicates whether or not there are selections below this
  • has-referred: Boolean value to indicate whether any other selections refer to this selection
  • has-rules: Indicates whether the selection has rules or not

PHP example

The following PHP example demonstrates how to use the method:

// dependencies

// change this into your access token
$api = new CopernicaRestApi("your-access-token");

// parameters to pass to the call
$data = array(
    'description'     =>  'new description'

// do the call
$api->post("view/1234/views", array(), $data);

// return id of created request if successful

The example above requires the CopernicaRestApi class.
