    get bookmark/favorite details via api

    perry124 Novice

      The information provided in the api documentation doesn't seem to match with what im actually getting when I refer to a bookmarked item via GET /contents/{contentID} as explained in the documentation.

      Any help will be greatly appreciated.

          When using GET /contents/{contentID} , the contentID should be the contentID of the favorite/bookmark object, not the content that is bookmarked.


          For example, you may bookmark the content: https://preview-jive.jiveon.com/docs/DOC-3122-version-test-in-2018-v1docx  It has the contentID: 31058 (https://preview-jive.jiveon.com/api/core/v3/contents/31058 )


          However, the favorite/bookmark object will have a different contentID: 31406.  When looking at the favorite/bookmark object, it should have "entityType": "favorite" & "type": "favorite". This will help to make sure you are looking at the right item.


          https://preview-jive.jiveon.com/api/core/v3/contents/31406  [Note: bookmarks are normally only visible to to the creator of the object so you would get a 401 error trying to access it. I also collapsed some fields in the response below to make it more readable]
