Sitecore User Group: Sitecore Item Web API
This is sample code used for the Sitecore User Group presentation on Sitecore Item Web API.
There are projects in the solution:
This is a Console application with examples of how you interact with the Sitecore Item Web API programatically from C#. There are examples of how to:
- Do an authenticated request with clear text credentials
- Do an authenticated request with RSA encrypted credentials
- Update a field on an item
- Create/delete items
Note: For authentication the username is looked up in the website domain.
Note: ItemConsole uses version 4.5 of NewtonSoft.Json.dll. This may not be the same version as the one used in Sitecore... so don't copy it there. RequestThrottle
An example of a pipeline processor that will throttle the API requests per ip address. The example uses a moving average strategy.
Use the following configuration include to add throttling to API request pipeline:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/"> <sitecore> <pipelines> <itemWebApiRequest> <processor patch:before="*" type="ItemWebApiExtension.RequestThrottle, ItemWebApiExtension" /> </itemWebApiRequest> </pipelines> </sitecore> </configuration>
