Web service API

How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

send mail

/members/{member}/groups/{group}/mail/send [POST]



Send an email message.

Use XSLT and the specified template to transform the provided XML content into an email message.

Send the message to one of the following four destination:

  • normal – all members of the group according to their notification settings.
  • announce – send to all members of the group ignoring their notification settings.
  • self – send to member currently logged in.
  • recipients  send to the email addresses specified in the parameter recipients .

The default option is normal

The security required to access this service depends on the email recipients. Following are the values for the notify parameter and PageSeeder role required when accessing them:

  • recipients  admin-system (i.e. Administrator)
  • normal|announce  edit-xlinks (i.e. Contributor and above)
  • self  view-members (i.e. Reviewer and above)


XSLT templates are cached internally, specifying clear-cache=true will clear the cache.
