evapi-java is an API client written in Java for connecting to the ExaVault API. The ExaVault API is a REST-like API providing operations for file and user management, and supports both POST and GET requests.

To get started using ExaVault's API, you first must have an ExaVault account and obtain an API key. For more information, please refer to our Developer page or contact for details.


Building the API client library requires Maven to be installed.


To install the API client library to your local Maven repository, simply execute:

mvn install

To deploy it to a remote Maven repository instead, configure the settings of the repository and execute:

mvn deploy

Refer to the official documentation for more information.

Maven users

Add this dependency to your project's POM:


Gradle users

Add this dependency to your project's build file:

compile "io.swagger:swagger-java-client:1.0.0"


At first generate the JAR by executing:

mvn package

Then manually install the following JARs:

  • target/swagger-java-client-1.0.0.jar
  • target/lib/*.jar

Getting started

You will need to obtain an API key for your application from the Client Area of your account. To obtain an API key, please follow the instructions below.

  • Login to the Accounts section of the Client Area.
  • Use the drop down next to your desired account, and select Manage API Keys.
  • You will be brought to the API Key management screen. Fill out the form and save to generate a new key for your app.

Once you obtain your API you can use the following snippet. It will allow you to authenticate into API, create folder, get activity logs and log out user from the API.

        Integer offset = 0;
        String sortBy = "sort_logs_date"; 
        String sortOrder = "desc"; 

        try {
            LogResponse getLogsResult = activityApi.getFileActivityLogs(apiKey, accessToken, offset, sortBy, sortOrder, null, null, null);
        } catch (ApiException e) {
            System.err.println("Exception when calling ActivityApi#getFileActivityLogs");
        // To logout the current user, simply check the loginSuccess flag that was stored earlier and then call the `logoutUser` method
        if (loginSuccess.getValue() == 1) {
                try {
                    authApi.logoutUser(apiKey, accessToken);
            } catch (ApiException e) {
                // server error occurred
                System.err.println("Exception when calling AuthenticationApi#logoutUser");
