FileInfo method

This method returns information about a file, such as file attributes, metadata, etc. This function requires input delivered by the ‘Search’ method.

Note: The Preview Agent API is deprecated and will be set to End of Life on July 1st, 2024.

If you have integrations that display previews in real-time, we recommend looking into alternative solutions such as obtaining temporary preview links from the RESTful API.

Valid ID(s) of the file(s) to return information for. These IDs must be those returned by the ‘Search’ method.

PreviewSize[*] := [ 0 . . . 1024 ]

The maximum dimension in pixels for a preview. The URL for this preview will be returned.

FileInfo[1] := [ 0 | 1 ]

MetaData[1] := [ 0 | 1 ]

An ‘Archive Agent File List XML’ document containing information for the requested files. If a file is not found, it is left out of the document unless the request is for a single file, in which case a 404 Not Found message will be returned.
