archive uri

/members/{member}/groups/{group}/uris/{uri}/archive [POST]


Archive a document or a folder.

If the URI is a folder this service starts an Asynchronous process.

This service can be used to archive a URI (that is either a document or a folder) by moving it to the Archive folder for the specified group.


If the URI corresponds to a Document, the URI is moved to the archive folder. If there is a corresponding file in the underlying file system, it is also moved.


If the URI corresponds to a Folder, its contents are moved in a separate thread provided there are no sub-folders. It also moves any underlying physical file if applicable.
