68 lines (51 loc) · 2.69 KB


A method to request all metadata from a view. This method does not support parameters. It is called by sending an HTTP GET request to the following URL:$id?access_token=xxxx

In this, $id needs to be replaced by the numerical identifier or the name of the view you wish to request the selections for.

Returned fields

The method returns a JSON object with the following fields:

Variable Description
ID Unique numerical identifier.
name Name of the selection.
description Description of the selection.
parent-type Type of the parent: view or database.
parent-id ID of the database or view.
has-children Boolean value: whether or not the database has selections nested underneath it.
has-referred Boolean value: whether or not there are other selections that refer to this selection.
has-rules Boolean value: whether or not the selection has selection rules.
database ID of the database this selection belongs to.
last-built Timestamp of the last time the view was built.
intentions Array with the intentions for the view (either 1 or null for email/sms/fax/pdf).

JSON example

The JSON for a view might look something like this:

   "last-built":"2019-04-17 00:21:26"

PHP example

The following example demonstrates how to use this method:

// dependencies

// change this into your access token
$api = new CopernicaRestAPI("your-access-token", 3);

// do the call, and print result

The example above requires the CopernicaRestApi class.
