.. post:: /wopi/files/(file_id) The |operation| operation creates a new file on the host based on the current file. The host must use the content in the :method:`post` body to create a new file. The |operation| operation has two distinct modes: *specific* and *suggested*. The primary difference between the two modes is whether the WOPI client expects the host to use the file name provided exactly (*specific* mode) or if the host can adjust the file name in order to make the request succeed (*suggested* mode). Hosts can determine the mode of the operation based on which of the mutually exclusive **X-WOPI-RelativeTarget** (indicates *specific* mode) or **X-WOPI-SuggestedTarget** (indicates *suggested* mode) request headers is used. The expected behavior for each mode is described in detail below. The |operation| operation may be called on a file that is not locked, so the **X-WOPI-Lock** request header is not included in this operation. An example of when this might occur is if a user uses the *Save As* feature when viewing a document in read-only mode. The source file will not be locked in this case, but the |operation| operation will be invoked on it. Note, however, that a file matching the target name might be locked, and in *specific* mode, the host must respond with a :statuscode:`409` and include a **X-WOPI-Lock** response header as described below. .. important:: If a WOPI host sets the :term:`SupportsUpdate` property in :ref:`CheckFileInfo` to ``true``, then the host is expected to implement the |operation| operation. However, a host may choose not to implement this operation even though :term:`SupportsUpdate` is ``true``, but they must do the following: #. Set the :term:`UserCanNotWriteRelative` property to ``true`` always. #. Return a :statuscode:`501` to all |operation| requests. .. admonition:: Excel Online Note Excel Online uses this operation in the following two ways: #. As part of the *Save As* feature. If |operation| is not supported, the *Save As* feature will not work in Excel Online. #. To support editing of some Excel files in Excel Online. Some files may contain content that is not currently supported in Excel Online. In this case, Excel Online will prompt the user to save an editable copy of the document, removing all unsupported content so that the file can be edited in Excel Online. If |operation| is not supported, files with unsupported content will not be editable in Excel Online. .. include:: /_fragments/common_params.rst :reqheader X-WOPI-Override: The **string** ``PUT_RELATIVE``. Required. :reqheader X-WOPI-SuggestedTarget: A UTF-7 encoded **string** specifying either a file extension or a full file name, including the file extension. Hosts can differentiate between full file names and extensions as follows: * If the string begins with a period (``.``), it is a file extension. * Otherwise, it is a full file name. If only the extension is provided, the name of the initial file without extension should be combined with the extension to create the proposed name. The response to a request including this header must never result in a :statuscode:`400` or :statuscode:`409`. Rather, the host must modify the proposed name as needed to create a new file that is both legally named and does not overwrite any existing file, while preserving the file extension. This header must be present if **X-WOPI-RelativeTarget** is not present; the two headers are mutually exclusive. If both headers are present the host should respond with a :statuscode:`400` or :statuscode:`501`. :reqheader X-WOPI-RelativeTarget: A UTF-7 encoded **string** that specifies a full file name including the file extension. The host must not modify the name to fulfill the request. If the specified name is illegal, the host must respond with a :statuscode:`400`. If a file with the specified name already exists, the host must respond with a :statuscode:`409`, unless the **X-WOPI-OverwriteRelativeTarget** request header is set to ``true``. When responding with a :statuscode:`409` for this reason, the host may include an **X-WOPI-ValidRelativeTarget** specifying a file name that is valid. If the **X-WOPI-OverwriteRelativeTarget** request header is set to ``true`` and a file with the specified name already exists and is locked, the host must respond with a :statuscode:`409` and include an **X-WOPI-Lock** response header containing the value of the current lock on the file. This header must be present if **X-WOPI-SuggestedTarget** is not present; the two headers are mutually exclusive. If both headers are present the host should respond with a :statuscode:`400` or :statuscode:`501`. :reqheader X-WOPI-OverwriteRelativeTarget: A **Boolean** value that specifies whether the host must overwrite the file name if it exists. The default value is ``false``. In other words, if **X-WOPI-OverwriteRelativeTarget** is not explicitly included on the request, hosts must behave as though its value is ``false``. This header is only valid if the **X-WOPI-RelativeTarget** is also included on the request. It must be ignored in all other cases. If the user is not authorized to overwrite the target file, the host must respond with a :statuscode:`501`. :reqheader X-WOPI-Size: An **integer** that specifies the size of the file in bytes. :reqheader X-WOPI-FileConversion: A header whose presence indicates that the request is being made in the context of a :ref:`binary document conversion<conversion>`. This header will only be included on the request in that case. Thus, if **X-WOPI-FileConversion** is not explicitly included on the request, hosts must behave as if the |operation| request is not being made as part of a binary document conversion. See :ref:`conversion` for more information on the conversion process and how this header can be used. :request Body: The request body must be the full binary contents of the file. :resheader X-WOPI-ValidRelativeTarget: A UTF-7 encoded **string** that specifies a full file name including the file extension. This header may be used when responding with a :statuscode:`409` because a file with the requested name already exists, or when responding with a :statuscode:`400` because the requested name contained invalid characters. If this response header is included, the WOPI client should automatically retry the |operation| operation using the contents of this header as the **X-WOPI-RelativeTarget** value and should not display an error message to the user. :resheader X-WOPI-Lock: .. include:: /_fragments/headers/X-WOPI-Lock.rst :resheader X-WOPI-LockFailureReason: .. include:: /_fragments/headers/X-WOPI-LockFailureReason.rst :resheader X-WOPI-LockedByOtherInterface: .. include:: /_fragments/headers/X-WOPI-LockedByOtherInterface.rst :code 200: Success :code 400: Specified name is illegal :code 401: Invalid :term:`access token` :code 404: Resource not found/user unauthorized :code 409: Target file already exists or the file is locked; if the target file is locked, an **X-WOPI-Lock** response header containing the value of the current lock on the file must always be included :code 413: File is too large; the maximum size is host-specific :code 500: Server error :code 501: Operation not supported; if the host sets the :term:`SupportsUpdate` and :term:`UserCanNotWriteRelative` properties to ``true`` in :ref:`CheckFileInfo`, this response code must be used when this operation is called .. include:: /_fragments/common_headers.rst
The response to a PutRelativeFile call is JSON (as specified in RFC 4627) containing a number of properties, some of which are optional.
Required response properties
The following properties must be present in all PutRelativeFile responses:
- The string name of the file, including extension, without a path.
- A string URI of the form
http://server/<...>/wopi/files/(file_id)?access_token=(access token), of the newly created file on the host. This URL is the :term:`WOPISrc` for the new file with an :term:`access token` appended. Or, stated differently, it is the URL to the host's :ref:`Files endpoint` for the new file, along with an :term:`access token`. A :method:`GET` request to this URL will invoke the :ref:`CheckFileInfo` operation.
