How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

batch action search

/members/{member}/groups/{group}/batch/{object}/{action}/search [POST]



Run batch action using search results where the following values are allowed in the URL:

  • object: The type of object to run the action on, can be: "uri", "xlink" ("xlink" only supports actions "addlabel" and "removelabel" and it means a comment, task or workflow).
  • action: The name of the action to run, can be: "addlabel", "removelabel", "addversion", "addworkflow", "move", "archive", "usageschema", "usagereport", "validate", "publish"

This generator does the same as the RunBatchAction  generator but uses the search results to load the ids, using the psid field from each result or the pstaskdefinitionid field for tasks and workflows.

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". Also "addlabel", "removelabel" on "uri" objects and "xlink" objects where they are the comment author.
  • member: for actions "validate", "publish".
