It can be one of:

  • addlabel
  • removelabel

  • addworkflow
  • move
  • archive

Action parameters

All the parameters starting with action.* are parameter for the batch action.

They are defined in the batch action service.


The minimum permission depends on the action and the object as follows:

  • administrator: for actions usageschema, usagereport.
  • approver: for action addversion.
  • manager: for actions addlabel, removelabel on xlink objects where they are not the comment author.
  • contributor: for actions addworkflow, move, archive, validate. Also addlabel, removelabel on uri objects and xlink objects where they are the comment author.
  • guest: for actions publish.

(1) On xlink objects, contributors can only add or remove labels if they are the author of the comment.
