    How to Pull name of members with docs I shared with?


      I want to pull data through Export API.


      Use case is to pull list of docs I shared with the name of members shared with.



      Document NameShared byShared with
      DOC-1Amittony, ryan. etc.

          The v3 api's contents endpoint for documents has a 'users' field which represents all the users that can see a document. This field only exists on documents which are not a globally/placable viewable. Couple that field with the author and subject of the document and I think you have everything you need.


          I use XQuery and an open source application called BaseX to query jive's v3 endpoints for things like this. Assume you want a csv export, the query below should do the trick:


          NOTE: I have bolded the parameters which must be changed. In particular the community uri, login for the api call, and the v3 uri of the user who shared the documents. If you want any sharing users, just remove the author filter from the $apiCall variable...


          Hopefully this helps. If you want to try this with BaseX:


          1) Install BaseX (Open source and free)

          2) Launch the BaseX GUI.

          3) Copy the script below into the Editor Pain

          4) Change the variables mentioned to match your community, login, etc..

          declare namespace jive = 'http://seu.jive.com';



          declare function jive:request-template($username as xs:string, $password as xs:string) as node() {

            <http:request username="{$username}" password="{$password}" send-authorization="true" override-media-type="text/plain" method="get" />



          declare function jive:process-response($responseBody as xs:string) as node() {

            json:parse(fn:replace($responseBody, "throw.*;\s*", ""))



          declare function jive:get-all-items($request-template as node(), $baseURI as xs:string) {

            let $response :=


                http:send-request($request-template, $baseURI)[2])

            return ($response/json/list/_, if($response/json/links/next) then (jive:get-all-items($request-template, $response/json/links/next)) else ())  





          let $destination := 'https://communityUrl.com'

          let $destReq := jive:request-template('loginHere', 'password')

          let $apiCall := '/api/core/v3/contents?filter=author(https://communityUrl.com/api/core/v3/people/2023)'


            let $csv := <csv>


                for $item in jive:get-all-items($destReq, $destination || $apiCall )

                   where $item/users


                   let $record := $item//users/.. return









            return csv:serialize($csv, map { "header": "yes"})

            Hi Amit,


            You can do this by using the activity action filter: filter=action(ACTIVITY_SHARE_DOCUMENT)
