Archive Agent File List XML

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.


The Archive Agent File List XML document contains information about the files matching a request sent to the Archive Agent.


All elements are required, except under these circumstances:

  • When MetaData=0 is specified, the MetaData element may be missing.
  • When FileInformation=0 is specified, the FileInfo element may be missing.
  • If no PreviewSize parameters are specified, the PreviewLinks element must be missing.

The number of PreviewUrl elements returned must match the number of PreviewSize parameters passed on the query string. If one of the requested preview sizes is out of range, the server must return a 400 Bad Request message. It must not ignore the parameter and return an incomplete XML document.
