uris group export

/members/{member}/groups/{group}/export [POST]

com.pageseeder.export.Export

Description

Export document(s) using path or uris parameters. The {group} on the URL is used when downloading the result.

This service exports the document(s) specified using the Universal Portable Format.

Use this service instead of Service: /members/{member}/groups/{group}/export [GET] if the uris parameter could be very long so that the maximum URL length for GET is not exceeded.

This is also the service supporting the export Ant task. If you’re working with Ant or outside a Web environment, it might be more appropriate to use the Ant task.

If there are more than 20 documents included in the export, this service starts an Asynchronous process.
