This document defines the Open-Xchange HTTP API which is used by the new AJAX GUI. The first chapter describes general definitions and conventions which apply to all server modules. All other chapters describe individual server modules.
 
 
 
=== Low level protocol ===
 
 
 
The client accesses the server through HTTP GET, POST and PUT requests. HTTP cookies are used for authentication and must therefore be processed and sent back by the client as specified by [http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265 RFC 6265]. The HTTP API is accessible at URIs starting with <code>/ajax</code>. Each server module has a unique name and its own sub-namespace with that name below <code>/ajax</code>, e. g. all access to the module "tasks" is via URIs starting with <code>/ajax/tasks</code>.
 
 
 
Text encoding is always UTF-8. Data is sent from the server to the client as <code>text/javascript</code> and interpreted by the client to obtain an ECMAScript object. The HTTP API uses only a small subset of the ECMAScript syntax. This subset is roughly described by the following BNF:
 
 
 
Value  ::= "null" | Boolean | Number | String | Array | Object
 
Boolean ::= "true" | "false"
 
Number  ::= see NumericLiteral in ECMA 262 3rd edition
 
String  ::= \"([^"\n\\]|\\["\n\\])*\"
 
Array  ::= "[]" | "[" Value ("," Value)* "]"
 
Object  ::= "{}" | "{" Name ":" Value ("," Name ":" Value)* "}"
 
Name    ::= [A-Fa-f][0-9A-Fa-f_]*
 
 
 
Numbers are the standard signed integer and floating point numbers. Strings can contain any character, except double quotes, newlines and backslashes, which must be escaped by a backslash. Control characters in strings (other than newline) are not supported. Whitespace is allowed between any two tokens. See [http://json.org JSON] and [http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/standards/Ecma-262.htm ECMA 262, 3<sup>rd</sup> edition] for the formal definition.
 
 
 
The response body consists of an object, which contains up to four fields as described in [[#ResponseBody | Response body]]. The field <code>data</code> contains the actual payload which is described in following chapters. The fields <code>timestamp</code>, <code>error</code> and <code>error_params</code> are present when data objects are returned, if an error occurred and if the error message contains conversion specifiers, respectively. Following sections describe the contents of these fields in more detail.

Data from the client to the server can be sent in several formats. Small amounts of data are sent as <code>application/x-www-urlencoded</code> in query parameters in the request URI. For POST requests, some or all parameters may be sent in the request body instead of in the URI using any valid encoding for POST requests. Alternatively, some requests specify that data is sent as <code>text/javascript</code> in the body of a PUT request. The format of the request body for PUT requests is the same as for sending data from the server to the client, except that the payload is sent directly, without being wrapped in another object.
 
 
 
When updating existing data, the client sends only fields that were modified. To explicitly delete a field, the field is sent with the value <code>null</code>. For fields of type <code>String</code>, the empty string <code>""</code> is equivalent to <code>null</code>.
 
 
 
=== Error handling ===
 
 
 
If the session of the user times out, if the client doesn't send a session ID or if the session for the specified session ID can not be found then the server returns the above described response object, that contains an error code and an error message. If the request URI or the request body is malformed or incomplete then the server returns the reponse object with an error message, too. In case of internal server errors, especially Java exceptions, or if the server is down, it returns the HTTP status code 503, Service Unavailable. Other severe errors may return other HTTP status values.
 
 
 
Application errors, which can be caused by a user and are therefore expected during the operation of the groupware, are reported by setting the field error in the returned object, as described in [[#ResponseBody | Response body]]. Since the error messages are translated by the client, they can not be composed of multiple variable parts. Instead, the error message can contain simplified printf()-style conversion specifications, which are replaced by elements from the array in the field error_params. If error_params is not present, no replacement occurs, even if parts of the error message match the syntax of a conversion specification.
 
 
 
A simplified conversion specification, as used for error messages, is either of the form %s or %''n''$s, where ''n'' is a 1-based decimal parameter index. The conversion specifications are replaced from left to right by elements from error_params, starting at the first element. %s is replaced by the current element and the current index is incremented. %''n''$s is replaced by the ''n''th element and the current index is set to the (''n'' + 1)th element.
 
 
 
Some error message contain data sizes which must be expressed in Bytes or Kilobytes etc., depending on the actual value. Since the unit must be translated, this conversion is performed by the client. Unfortunately, standard printf()-style formatting does not have a specifier for this kind of translation. Therefore, the conversion specification for sizes is the same as for normal strings, and the client has to determine which parameters to translate based on the error code. The current error codes and the corresponding size parameters are listed in [[#DataSizeParameters | Data size parameters]]

=== Date and time ===
 
 
 
Dates without time are transmitted as the number of milliseconds between 00:00 UTC on that date and 1970-01-01 00:00 UTC. Leap seconds are ignored, therefore this number is always an integer multiple of 8.64e7.
 
 
 
Because ECMAScript Date objects have no way to explicitly specify a timezone for calculations, timezone correction must be performed on the server. Dates with time are transmitted as the number of milliseconds since 1970-01-01 00:00 UTC (again, ignoring leap seconds) plus the offset between the ''user's'' timezone and UTC at the time in question. (See the Java method java.util.TimeZone.getOffset(long)). Unless optional URL parameter <code>'''timezone'''</code> is present. Then dates with time are transmitted as the number of milliseconds since 1970-01-01 00:00 UTC (again, ignoring leap seconds) plus the offset between the ''specified'' timezone and UTC at the time in question.
 
 
 
For some date and time values, especially timestamps, monotonicity is more important than the actual value. Such values are transmitted as the number of milliseconds since 1970-01-01 00:00 UTC, ignoring leap seconds and without timezone correction. If possible, a unique strictly monotonic increasing value should be used instead, as it avoids some race conditions described below.
 
 
 
This specification refers to these three interpretations of the type Number as separate data types. The types are described in [[#DateAndTimeTypes | Date and time types]].

| Time      || Yes  || User    || Date and time.
 
|-
 
| Timestamp || Yes  || UTC      || Timestamp or unique sequence number.
 
|-
 
|}
 
 
 
=== Updates ===
 
 
 
To allow efficient synchronization of a client with changes made by other clients and to detect conflicts, the server stores a timestamp of the last modification for each object. Whenever the server transmits data objects to the client, the response object described in [[#ResponseBody | Response body]] includes the field timestamp. This field contains a timestamp value which is computed as the maximum of the timestamps of all transmitted objects.
 
 
 
When requesting updates to a previously retrieved set of objects, the client sends the last timestamp which belongs to that set of objects. The response contains all updates with timestamps greater than the one specified by the client. The field timestamp of the response contains the new maximum timestamp value.
 
 
 
If multiple different objects may have the same timestamp values, then a race condition exists when an update is processed between two such objects being modified. The first, already modified object will be included in the update response and its timestamp will be the maximum timestamp value sent in the timestamp field of the response. If the second object is modified later but gets the same timestamp, the client will never see the update to that object because the next update request from the client supplies the same timestamp value, but only modifications with greater timestamp values are returned.
 
 
 
If unique sequence numbers can't be used as timestamps, then the risk of the race condition can be at least minimized by storing timestamps in the most precise format and/or limiting update results to changes with timestamp values which are measurably smaller than the current timestamp value.
 
 
 
=== Editing ===
 
 
 
Editing objects is performed one object at a time. There may be multiple objects being edited by the same client simulataneously, but this is achieved by repeating the steps required for editing a single object. There is no batch edit or upload command.
 
 
 
To edit an object, a client first requests the entire object from the server. The server response contains the timestamp field described in the previous section. For in-place editing inside a view of multiple objects, where only already retrieved fields can be changed, retrieving the entire object is not necessary, and the last timestamp of the view is used as the timestamp of each object in it.
 
 
 
When sending the modified object back to the server, only modified fields need to be included in the sent object. The request also includes the timestamp of the edited object. The timestamp is used by the server to ensure that the object was not edited by another client in the meantime. If the current timestamp of the object is greater than the timestamp supplied by the client, then a conflict is detected and the field error is set in the response. Otherwise, the object gets a new timestamp and the response to the client is empty.
 
 
 
If the client displays the edited object in a view together with other objects, then the client will need to perform an update of that view immediately after successfully uploading an edited object.
 
 
 
=== File uploads ===
 
 
 
File uploads are made by sending a POST request that submits both the file and the needed fields as parts of a request of content-type “multipart/form-data” or “multipart/mixed”. The file metadata are stored in a form field “file” (much like an <input type=”file” name=”file” /> would do). In general a call that allows file uploads via POST will have a corresponding call using PUT to send object data. The JSON-encoded object-data that is send as the body of a corresponding PUT call is, when performed as a POST with file uploads, put into the request parameter “json”.
 
 
 
Since the upload is performed directly by the browser and is not an Ajax call, the normal callback mechanism for asynchronous Javascript calls cannot be used to obtain the result. For this reason the server responds to these POST calls with a complete HTML page that performs the callback and should not be displayed to the user. The HTML response is functionally equivalent to:
 
 
 
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
 
<html>
 
    <head>
 
        <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content=\"text/html; charset=UTF-8\">
 
        <script type="text/javascript">
 
            (parent["callback_<b>action</b>"] || window.opener && window.opener["callback_<b>action</b>"])
 
            (<b>{json}</b>)
 
        </script>
 
    </head>
 
</html>
 
 
 
The placeholders <code>{json}</code> is replaced by the response with the timestamp that would be expected from the corresponding PUT method. The placeholder <code>action</code> is replaced by the value of the parameter <code>action</code> of the request (except for the import bundle, which is named "import" instead of the action name for legacy purposes). The content-type of the answer is <code>text/html</code>.
 
 
 
Non-browser clients don't need to interpret HTML or JavaScript. The JSON data can be recognized by the outermost <code>({</code> and <code>})</code>, where the inner braces are part of the JSON value. For example, the regular expression <code>\((\{.*\})\)</code> captures the entire JSON value in its first capturing group.
 
 
 
=== Documentation conventions ===
 
 
 
The rest of this document describes all available requests for each module. A module usually supports several different requests, which are differentiated by the used HTTP method, URI path and supplied URI parameters. The description of each method generally contains the following elements:
 
* the HTTP method followed by the request URI, inclusing the URI parameter action, which is used to differentiate methods,
 
* a list of URI parameters which can or must be supplied by the client,
 
* for PUT requests, content of the request body,
 
* for POST requests all described parameters are normally expected in the request body, exceptions are documented,
 
* "Response with timestamp:"if the timestamp field is required in the response body or simply "Response:" if not,
 
* content of the response payload, unless it is supposed to be empty.
 
 
 
=== Common object data ===
 
 
 
This table contains common fields which apply for any module's data type and is referenced throughout this document whenever a module's data type is described.

== Module "login" ==
 
 
 
The login module is used to obtain a session from the user's login credentials. To understand the details of the different login methods, see the article titled "[[Login variations]]".
 
 
 
Because of security reasons each login variation will reject requests containing the parameter "password" within the URL query (starting with 7.8.0).
 
 
 
=== Login ===
 
 
 
POST <code>/ajax/login?action=login</code>
 
 
 
Parameters are normally expected in the POST request body:
 
* <code>name</code> – The login name.
 
* <code>password</code> – The password MUST be placed in the request body, otherwise the login request will be denied.
 
* <code>authId</code> (optional) – Identifier for tracing every single login request passed between different systems in a cluster. The value should be some token that is unique for every login request. This parameter must be given as URL parameter and not inside the body of the POST request.
 
* <code>client</code> (optional) – Identifier of the client using the HTTP/JSON interface. This is for statistic evaluations what clients are used with Open-Xchange.
 
* <code>version</code> (optional) – Used version of the HTTP/JSON interface client.
 
* <code>clientIP</code> (optional) – IP address of the client host for that the session is created. If this parameter is not specified the IP address of the HTTP client doing this request is used.
 
* <code>clientUserAgent</code> (optional) – Value of the User-Agent header of the client host for that the session is created. If this parameter is not specified the User-Agent of the current HTTP client doing this request is used.
 
 
 
Response: A JSON object containing the session ID used for all subsequent requests. Additionally a random token is contained to be used for the Easy Login method.
 
 
 
=== Form Login (since 6.20) ===
 
 
 
POST <code>/ajax/login?action=formlogin</code>
 
 
 
This request implements a possible login to the web frontend by only using a simple HTML form. An example for such a form can be found in the backend's documentation folder (<code>/usr/share/doc/open-xchange-core</code>) under <code>examples/login.html</code>.
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>login</code> – The login name.
 
* <code>password</code> – The password.
 
* <code>authId</code> – Identifier for tracing every single login request passed between different systems in a cluster. The value should be some token that is unique for every login request. This parameter must be given as URL parameter and not inside the body of the POST request.
 
* <code>client</code> – Identifier of the client using the HTTP/JSON interface. This is for statistic evaluations what clients are used with Open-Xchange. If the autologin request should work the client must be the same as the client sent by the UI in the normal login request.
 
* <code>version</code> – Used version of the HTTP/JSON interface client.
 
* <code>autologin</code> – True or false. True tells the UI to issue a store request for the session cookie. This store request is necessary if you want the autologin request not to fail.
 
* <code>uiWebPath</code> (optional) – Defines another path on the web server where the UI is located. If this parameter is not defined the configured default of the backend is used.
 
* <code>clientIP</code> (optional) – IP address of the client host for that the session is created. If this parameter is not specified the IP address of the HTTP client doing this request is used.
 
* <code>clientUserAgent</code> (optional) – Value of the User-Agent header of the client host for that the session is created. If this parameter is not specified the User-Agent of the current HTTP client doing this request is used.
 
 
 
Response: A redirect to the web UI. The URL of the web UI is either taken from the given parameter or from the configured default of the backend.
 
 
 
For a complete description of the FormLogin-Process please see [[FormLogin|this documentation]]
 
 
 
=== Token Login (since 7.0.1) ===
 
 
 
POST <code>/ajax/login?action=tokenLogin</code>
 
 
 
This request allows every possible client to create a very short living session. This session can then be transferred to any other client preferably a browser entering then the normal web interface. Then the sessions life time will be extended equally to every other session.
 
 
 
Compared to the login mechanism using the random token, this request is more secure because two tokens are used. One of these tokens is only known to the client and one is generated by the server. Only the combination of both tokens allows to use the session. The combination of both tokens must be done by the client creating the session.
 
 
 
DISCLAIMER: This request MUST NOT be used by some server side instance. If some server side instance uses this request to create a session for a browser on some client machine, then you have to transfer the full URL with server and client token over some connection to the client. This creates a VULNERABILITY if this is done. The token login method is only secure if this request is already sent from the same machine that later runs the browser using the created session.
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>login</code> – The login information.
 
* <code>password</code> – The password.
 
* <code>clientToken</code> – Client side identifier for accessing the session later. The value should be some token that is unique for every login request.
 
* <code>authId</code> – Identifier for tracing every single login request passed between different systems in a cluster. The value should be some token that is unique for every login request. This parameter must be given as URL parameter and not inside the body of the POST request.
 
* <code>client</code> – Identifier of the client using the HTTP/JSON interface. This is for statistic evaluations what clients are used with Open-Xchange. If the autologin request should work the client should be the same as the client sent by the UI in the normal login request. For security considerations it can become necessary to define here the correct client that will use the session.
 
* <code>version</code> – Version of the HTTP/JSON interface client. Only for statistic evaluations.
 
* <code>autologin</code> – True or false. True tells the UI to issue a store request for the session cookie. This store request is necessary if you want the autologin request not to fail. This must be enabled on the server and a client can test with the autologin request if it is enabled or not.
 
* <code>uiWebPath</code> (optional) – Defines another path on the web server where the UI is located. If this parameter is not defined the configured default of the backend is used.
 
* <code>clientIP</code> (optional) – IP address of the client host for that the session is created. If this parameter is not specified the IP address of the HTTP client doing this request is used. Currently the IP address may change when using the session with both tokens. This can be disabled in future releases for security considerations.
 
* <code>clientUserAgent</code> (optional) – Value of the User-Agent header of the client host for that the session is created. If this parameter is not specified the User-Agent of the current HTTP client doing this request is used. Currently the User-Agent may change when using the session. This can be disabled in future releases for security considerations.
 
* <code>jsonResponse</code> (optional, since 7.8.0) – true or false (default). Defines the returned data type as JSON. Default 'false' will return a redirect.
 
 
 
 
 
Response: A redirect to the web UI (or JSON including the redirect url in case jsonResponse=true is set). The URL of the web UI is either taken from the given parameter or from the configured default of the backend. This redirect will only contain the server side token. The client side token sent in the request must be appended by the client creating the session. The final URL must have the form <code style="white-space: nowrap"><var>redirect_URL</var>&amp;clientToken=<var>token</var></code>. Both tokens are necessary to use the session and both tokens must match. Otherwise the session is terminated.
 
 
 
=== Tokens (since 7.0.1) ===
 
 
 
POST <code>/ajax/login?action=tokens</code>
 
 
 
This request allows clients to access a session created with the [[#Token_Login_.28since_7.0.1.29 | tokenLogin]] request. When accessing the session its life time is extended equally to every other session.
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>serverToken</code> – Server side identifier for accessing the session. This identifier was created by the server and is contained in the tokenLogin response.
 
* <code>clientToken</code> – Client side identifier for accessing the session. This identifier was created by the client and passed within the POST data of the tokenLogin request.
 
* <code>client</code> – Identifier of the client using the HTTP/JSON interface. Currently this request allows to change the client identifier for the session. This eases creating the session because the identifier of the client using the session must not be known. For security considerations it can become necessary to drop this parameter.
 
 
 
 
 
Response: A JSON object conform to the normal [[#ResponseBody | response body]] contrary to the JSON object of the normal login request. This JSON object contains the session identifier, the login, the identifier and the locale of the user.
 
 
 
=== Logout ===
 
 
 
GET <code>/ajax/login?action=logout</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
 
 
=== Refresh secret cookie (since 6.18.2) ===

If the session ID was stored in a cookie before via the [[#Refresh_auto-login_cookie | store request]], the user can reuse his old session by using the autologin request.
 
 
 
GET <code>/ajax/login?action=autologin</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
 
 
* <code>authId</code> – Identifier for tracing every single login request passed between different systems in a cluster. The value should be some token that is unique for every login request.

== Module "config" ==
 
 
 
The config module is used to retrieve and set user-specific configuration. The configuration is stored in a tree. Each node of the tree has a name and a value. The values of leaf nodes are strings which store the actual configuration data. The values of inner nodes are defined recursively as objects with one field for each child node. The name and the value of each field is the name and the value of the corresponding child node, respectively.

GET <code>/ajax/folders?action=list</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>parent</code> – Object ID of a folder, which is the parent folder of the requested folders.
 
* <code>columns</code> – A comma-separated list of columns to return. Each column is specified by a numeric column identifier. Column identifiers for folders are defined in [[#CommonFolderData | Common folder data]] and [[#DetailedFolderData | Detailed folder data]].
 
* <code>all</code> – Set to <code>1</code> to list even not subscribed folders.
 
* <code>tree</code> – The identifier of the folder tree. If missing '0' (primary folder tree) is assumed.
 
* <code>allowed_modules</code> – An array of modules (either numbers or strings; e.g. "tasks,calendar,contacts,mail") supported by requesting client. If missing, all available modules are considered.
 
* <code>errorOnDuplicateName</code> – An optional flag to enable or disable (default) check for duplicate folder names within returned folder response (since v6.20.1). If a duplicate folder name is detected, an appropriate error is returned as [[#ResponseBody | response]].
 
 
 
Response with timestamp: An array with data for all folders, which have the folder with the requested object ID as parent. Each array element describes one folder and is itself an array. The elements of each array contain the information specified by the corresponding identifiers in the columns parameter.
 
 
 
=== Get path ===
 
 
 
GET <code>/ajax/folders?action=path</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>id</code> – Object ID of a folder.
 
* <code>columns</code> – A comma-separated list of columns to return. Each column is specified by a numeric column identifier. Column identifiers for folders are defined in [[#CommonFolderData | Common folder data]] and [[#DetailedFolderData | Detailed folder data]].
 
* <code>tree</code> – (Preliminary) The identifier of the folder tree. If missing '0' (primary folder tree) is assumed.
 
* <code>allowed_modules</code> – (Preliminary) An array of modules (either numbers or strings; e.g. "tasks,calendar,contacts,mail") supported by requesting client. If missing, all available modules are considered.
 
 
 
Response with timestamp: An array with data for all parent nodes until root folder. Each array element describes one folder and is itself an array. The elements of each array contain the information specified by the corresponding identifiers in the columns parameter.
 
 
 
=== Get updated folders ===
 
 
 
GET <code>/ajax/folders?action=updates</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>parent</code> – Object ID of a folder, which is the parent folder of the requested folders.
 
* <code>timestamp</code> – Timestamp of the last update of the requested folders.
 
* <code>ignore</code> (optional) – Which kinds of updates should be ignored. Currently, the only valid value – "deleted" – causes deleted object IDs not to be returned.
 
* <code>columns</code> – A comma-separated list of columns to return. Each column is specified by a numeric column identifier. Column identifiers for folders are defined in [[#CommonFolderData | Common folder data]] and [[#DetailedFolderData | Detailed folder data]].
 
* <code>tree</code> – (Preliminary) The identifier of the folder tree. If missing '0' (primary folder tree) is assumed.
 
* <code>allowed_modules</code> – (Preliminary) An array of modules (either numbers or strings; e.g. "tasks,calendar,contacts,mail") supported by requesting client. If missing, all available modules are considered.
 
 
 
Response with timestamp: An array with data for new, modified and deleted folders. New and modified folders are represented by arrays. The elements of each array contain the information specified by the corresponding identifiers in the columns parameter. Deleted folders (should the <code>ignore</code> parameter be ever implemented) would be identified by their object IDs as plain strings, without being part of a nested array.
 
 
 
=== Get a folder ===
 
 
 
GET <code>/ajax/folders?action=get</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>id</code> – Object ID of the requested folder.
 
* <code>tree</code> – (Preliminary) The identifier of the folder tree. If missing '0' (primary folder tree) is assumed.
 
* <code>allowed_modules</code> – (Preliminary) An array of modules (either numbers or strings; e.g. "tasks,calendar,contacts,mail") supported by requesting client. If missing, all available modules are considered.
 
 
 
Response with timestamp: An object containing all data of the requested folder. The fields of the object are listed in [[#CommonFolderData | Common folder data]] and [[#DetailedFolderData | Detailed folder data]]. The field id is not present. Since OX access controls are folder-based, the folder object also defines the permissions for the objects it contains. The permissions for a given user or group are defined by the object described in [[#PermissionObject | Permission object]]. The format of the actual permissions depends on the type of the folder. The permissions of mail folders are transmitted as a rights string as defined in section 3 of RFC 2086. Permissions of all other folders are transmitted as a single nonnegative integer number. The permissions for any given action on the folder or on contained objects is defined by a group of bits in the binary representation of this number. Each group of bits is interpreted as a separate number. Zero always means "no permissions". Any other values add new permissions and always include the permissions of all lower values. The individual values are described in [[#PermissionFlags | Permission flags]].
 
 
 
=== Update a folder ===
 
 
 
PUT <code>/ajax/folders?action=update</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>id</code> – Object ID of the updated folder.
 
* <code>timestamp</code> – Timestamp of the updated folder. If the folder was modified after the specified timestamp, then the update must fail.
 
* <code>tree</code> – (Preliminary) The identifier of the folder tree. If missing '0' (primary folder tree) is assumed.
 
* <code>allowed_modules</code> – (Preliminary) An array of modules (either numbers or strings; e.g. "tasks,calendar,contacts,mail") supported by requesting client. If missing, all available modules are considered.
 
* <code>cascadePermissions</code> – (Optional. Defaults to false) Flag to cascade permissions to all sub-folders. The user must have administrative permissions to all sub-folders subject to change. If one permission change fails, the entire operation fails. (Since 7.8.0)
 
 
 
Request body: Folder object as described in [[#CommonFolderData | Common folder data]] and [[#DetailedFolderData | Detailed folder data]]. Only modified fields are present. It is possible to let added permission entities be notified about newly shared folders for all modules except mail.

      },
 
      {
 
        "type":"guest",
 
        "email_address":"john.doe@example.com",
 
        "display_name":"John Doe",
 
        "bits":257
 
      }
 
    ]

Request body: Folder object as described in [[#CommonFolderData | Common folder data]] and [[#DetailedFolderData | Detailed folder data]]. The field id should not be present. It is possible to let added permission entities be notified about newly shared folders for all modules except mail. In that case you need to provide the folder data as an object "folder" and add a "notification" object beside it:
 
 
 
<pre>
 
{
 
  "folder":{
 
    "permissions":[
 
      {
 
        "bits":403710016,
 
        "entity":84,
 
        "group":false
 
      },
 
      {
 
        "type":"guest",
 
        "email_address":"john.doe@example.com",

  },
 
  "notification":{
 
    "transport":"mail",
 
    "message":"Hi!\nHave a look at this!"
 
  }
 
}
 
</pre>
 
 
 
Provided that permission is granted to create a folder, its module is bound to the limitation, that the new folder's module must be equal to parent folder's module except that:
 
* Parent folder is one of the system folders <code>private</code>, <code>public</code>, or <code>shared</code>. Below these folders task, calendar, and contact modules are permitted.
 
* Parent folder's module is one of task, calendar, or contact. Below this kind of folders task, calendar, and contact modules are permitted.
 
 
 
Response: Object ID of the newly created folder.
 
 
 
=== Delete folders ===
 
 
 
PUT <code>/ajax/folders?action=delete</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>timestamp</code> – The optional timestamp of the last update of the deleted folders.

* <code>allowed_modules</code> – (Preliminary) An array of modules (either numbers or strings; e.g. "tasks,calendar,contacts,mail") supported by requesting client. If missing, all available modules are considered.
 
* <code>hardDelete</code> - Optional, defaults to \"false\". If set to \"true\", the folders are deleted permanently. Otherwise, and if the underlying storage supports a trash folder and the folders are not yet located below the trash folder, they are moved to the trash folder.
 
 
 
Request body: An array with object IDs of the folders that shall be deleted.
 
 
 
Response: An array with object IDs of folders that were '''NOT''' deleted. There may be a lot of different causes for a not deleted folder: A folder has been modified in the mean  time, the user does not have the permission to delete it or those permissions have just been removed, the folder does not exist, etc.
 
 
 
=== Clearing a folder's content  ===
 
PUT <code>/ajax/folders?action=clear</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.

Request body: A JSON array containing the folder ID(s) whose content should be cleared. '''NOTE:''' Although the requests offers to clear multiple folders at once it is recommended to clear only one folder per request since if any exception occurs
 
(e.g. missing permissions) the complete request is going to be aborted.
 
 
 
Response: A JSON array containing the IDs of folders that could not be cleared due to a concurrent modification. Meaning you receive an empty JSON array if everything worked well.

PUT <code>/ajax/mail?action=search</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>folder</code> – Object ID of the folder, whose contents are queried.
 
* <code>columns</code> – A comma-separated list of columns to return. Each column is specified by a numeric column identifier. Column identifiers for mails are defined in [[#DetailedMailData | Detailed mail data]].

Request Body: A JSON object containing filters. <code>{"filter":<i>[search term]</i>}</code>
 
 
 
This section describes the syntax of the optional JSON object representing the search term.
 
In general the structure of a search term is in prefix notation; meaning the operator is written before its operands:
 
 
 
<code>[">", 5, 2]</code>
 
 
 
The available operators are:
 
* Comparison operators ">", "<", "=", "<=", ">=", "<>"
 
* logic operators "not", "and", "or"
 
 
 
Comparison operators have exactly two operands. Each operand can be either a field name or a constant. A field name is an object with the member "field" specifying the field name, e.g. <code>{ field: "from" }</code>. The available field names are <code>from</code>, <code>to</code>, <code>cc</code>, <code>bcc</code>, <code>subject</code>, <code>received_date</code>, <code>sent_date</code>, <code>size</code>,<code>flags</code>, <code>content</code>, <code>content_type</code>, <code>disp</code> and <code>priority</code> as defined in [[#DetailedMailData | Detailed mail data]]. Primitive JSON types are interpreted as constants. Arrays are not valid operands for comparison operators.
 
 
 
The logic operator "not" has exactly one operand, the other logic operators can have any number of operands. Each operand must be an array representing a nested search expression.
 
 
 
<code>
 
    {"filter":
 
        ["or",
 
            ["and",
 
                ["=", {"field":"to"}, "test1@example.org"],
 
                ["not",
 
                    ["=", {"field":"from"}, "test2@example.org"]
 
                ],
 
                [">", {"field":"received_date"}, "1458063382000"]

** "text" forces the server to deliver a text-only version of the requested mail's body, even if content is HTML.
 
** "textNoHtmlAttach" is the same as "text", but does not deliver the HTML part as attachment in case of multipart/alternative content.
 
** "html" to allow a possible HTML mail body being transferred as it is (but white-list filter applied).
 
** "noimg" to allow a possible HTML content being transferred but without original image src attributes which references external images: Can be used to prevent loading external linked images (spam privacy protection).
 
** '''NOTE:''' if set, the corresponding gui config setting will be ignored.
 
* <code>unseen</code> (optional) – "1" or "true" to leave an unseen mail as unseen although its content is requested
 
* <code>max_size</code> (optional - available since v7.6.1) A positive integer number (greater than 10000) to specify how many characters of the message content will be returned. If the number is smaller than 10000 the value will be ignored and 10000 used.
 
* <code>attach_src</code> (optional - available since v7.6.1) 1 to let the JSON mail representation being extended by <code>"source"</code> field containing the mail raw RFC822 source data
 
 
 
Response (not IMAP: with timestamp): An JSON object containing all data of the requested mail. The fields of the object are listed in [[#DetailedMailData | Detailed mail data]]. The fields id and attachment are not included. '''NOTE:''' Of course response is not a JSON object if either parameter <code>hdr</code> or parameter <code>src</code> are set to "1". Then the response contains plain text. Moreover if optional parameter <code>save</code> is set to "1" the complete message source is going to be directly written to output stream to open browser's save dialog.

=== Get multiple mail attachments as a ZIP file ===
 
 
 
GET <code>/ajax/mail?action=zip_attachments</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>folder</code> – The folder identifier.
 
* <code>id</code> – Object ID of the mail which contains the attachments.
 
* <code>attachment</code> – A comma-separated list of IDs of the requested attachments
 
 
 
Response body: The raw byte data of the ZIP file.
 
 
 
=== Send a mail ===
 
 
 
POST <code>/ajax/mail?action=new</code>
 
 
 
Parameters:
 
* <code>session</code> – A session ID previously obtained from the login module.
 
* <code>lineWrapAfter</code> – An integer value specifying the line-wrap setting (only effective for plain-text content); if absent the setting is taken from user's mail settings. Available with v7.8.1.
 
 
 
Request Body: This method uses the encoding multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed.
 
* The form filed <code>json_0</code> contains the rudimentary mail as JSON object as described in [[#DetailedMailData | Detailed mail data]] with just its message body (as html content) defined in nested JSON array "attachments" and its header data (from, to, subject, etc.). The field "content_type" defines whether the mail ought to be sent as plain text ("text/plain"), as html ("text/html") or  as multipart/alternative ("ALTERNATIVE"). Sending a mail requires some special fields inside JSON mail object. The field "infostore_ids" defines a JSON array of infostore document ID(s) that ought to be appended to this mail as attachments. The field "msgref" indicates the ID of the referenced original mail. Moreover the field "sendtype" indicates the type of the message:
 
** 0 - A normal new mail (optional)
 
** 1 - A reply mail. The field "msgref" must be present
 
** 2 - A forward mail. The field "msgref" must be present
 
** 3 - A draft edit operation. The field "msgref" must be present in order to delete previous draft message since e.g. IMAP does not support changing/replacing a message but requires a delete-and-insert sequence
 
** 4 - Transport of a draft mail. The field "msgref" must be present
 
** 6 - This type signals that user intends to send out a saved draft message and expects the draft message (referenced by "msgref" field) being deleted after successful transport
 
Example of a normal new mail which appends user's VCard and requests a read receipt from receiver:
 
 
 
<code>Content-Disposition: form-data; name="json_0"....{"from":"\u0022Muster, Karl\u0022 <karl.muster@somewhere.com>","to":"someone@somewhere.com","cc":"","bcc":"",
 
"subject":"Mail Subject","priority":"3","disp_notification_to":true,"vcard":1,
 
"attachments":[{"content_type":"ALTERNATIVE","content":"Simple Mail Text!&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;\u000a\u000a"}]}</code>
 
* The request accepts file fields in upload form that denote referenced files that are going to be appended as attachments
 
* For "text/plain" mail bodies, the JSON boolean field "raw" may be specified inside the body's JSON representation to signal that the text content shall be kept as-is; meaning to keep all formatting intact
 
 
 
==== Attach data sources ====
 
Moreover the JSON representation may contain data sources which should be appended as file attachments to the mail. Then the mail contains the <code>"datasources"</code> key which is expected to be a JSON array of data source descriptions.
 
 
 
A data source description follows the [[#Module_.22conversion.22_.28preliminary.29 | conversion specification]].
 
 
 
For example to attach a file through an URL the field looks like this (available with v6.18.2):
 
 
 
<pre>
 
{
 
"from": "someone@somewhere.com,
 
...
 
"datasources"
 
[
 
  {
 
  "identifier": "com.openexchange.url.mail.attachment",
 
  "args":
 
    {
 
    "url": <url-string>,
 
    "timeout": <optional-timeout-millis-int, default is 2500msec>,
 
    "contentType": <optional-content-type-string>,
 
    "charset": <optional-charset-string>,
 
    "size": <optional-size-int>,
 
    "disposition": <optional-disposition-string>,
 
    "fileName": <optional-file-name-string>,
 
    }
 
  }
 
]
 
}

* <code>module</code> – Module ID (as per [[#AttachmentObject | Attachment object]]) of the attached object.
 
* <code>columns</code> – A comma-separated list of columns to return. Each column is specified by a numeric column identifier. Column identifiers for attachments are defined in [[#CommonObjectData | Common object data]] (with only id, created_by and creation_date available) and [[#AttachmentObject | Attachment object]].
 
* <code>sort</code> (optional) – The identifier of a column which determines the sort order of the response. If this parameter is specified, then the parameter order must be also specified.
 
* <code>order</code> (optional) – "asc" if the response entires should be sorted in the ascending order, "desc" if the response entries should be sorted in the descending order. If this parameter is specified, then the parameter sort must be also specified.

== Module "search" (preliminary) ==
 
 
 
The search module is an enhancement to each search request as an optional JSON object via PUT method to filter elements; e.g.
 
 
 
<code>
 
PUT /ajax/contacts?action=all&...
 
 
 
{"filter":{search-term-object}}
 
</code>
 
 
 
This section describes the syntax of the optional JSON object representing the search term.<br>
 
In general the structure of a search term is in prefix notation; meaning the operator is written before its operands:
 
 
 
<code>{"operation":"equals","operands":[...]}</code>
 
 
 
Moreover there are two different types of a search terms:
 
* A single search term
 
* A composite search term
 
 
 
A single search term reflects an operation which cannot hold nested search terms as operands; e.g. "equals". In opposite to this a composite search term holds one or more nested search terms as operands; e.g. "not" or the logical junctors "and"/"or".
 
 
 
By now the following operations are supported:
 
* composite operations
 
** "and" - The AND junctor
 
** "or" - The OR junctor
 
** "not" - Negation
 
* single operations
 
** "equals" - Equals comparison
 
** "lt" - Less-than comparison
 
** "gt" - Greater-than comparison
 
 
 
Furthermore following operand types are supported for single search terms:
 
* Column - Providing a name referring to a field/column
 
* Constant - A constant
 
 
 
Example of an EQUALS search term:<br>
 
<code>
 
{"operation":"equals","operands":[{"type":"column","value":"first_name"},"Jane"]}
 
</code>
 
 
 
Example of an OR search term:<br>
 
<code>
 
{"operation":"or","operands":<br>
 
&nbsp;[<br>
 
&nbsp;&nbsp;{"operation":"equals","operands":[{"type":"column","value":"first_name"},"Jane"]},<br>
 
&nbsp;&nbsp;{"operation":"gt","operands":[{"type":"column","value":"birthday"},"1975-05-01"]}<br>
 
&nbsp;]<br>
 
}<br>
 
</code>
 
 
 
 
 
Refer to object data tables introduced by different modules to know which field names are supported; e.g. for tasks it is [[#CommonObjectData | Common object data]], [[#DetailedTaskAndAppointmentData | Detailed task and appointment data]], and [[#DetailedTaskData | Detailed task data]].
 
 
 
== Module "search" (alternative suggestion, still preliminary) ==
 
 
 
The search module is an enhancement to each search request as an optional JSON object via PUT method to filter elements; e.g.
 
 
 
<code>
 
PUT /ajax/contacts?action=all&...
 
 
 
{"filter":<i>[search term]</i>}
 
</code>
 
 
 
This section describes the syntax of the optional JSON object representing the search term.
 
In general the structure of a search term is in prefix notation; meaning the operator is written before its operands:
 
 
 
<code>[">", 5, 2]</code>
 
 
 
The available operators are:
 
* Comparison operators ">", "<", "=", "<=", ">=", "<>"
 
* logic operators "not", "and", "or"
 
 
 
Comparison operators have exactly two operands. Each operand can be either a field name or a constant. A field name is an object with the member "field" specifying the field name, e.g. <code>{ field: "first_name" }</code>. The available field names depend on the searched module. Primitive JSON types are interpreted as constants. Arrays are not valid operands for comparison operators.
 
 
 
The logic operator "not" has exactly one operand, the other logic operators can have any number of operands. Each operand must be an array representing a nested search expression.
 
 
 
== Module "mail account" (available with v6.12) ==

== Module "OAuth" ==
 
 
 
The Open-Xchange server can act as an OAuth client (starting with v6.20) or be an OAuth provider itself (starting with v7.8.0). The OAuth module supports both aspects:
 
 
 
* Manage multiple OAuth accounts for certain online services for a user. The OAuth mechanism allows the Open-Xchange application to act as behalf of this user using previously obtained access tokens granted by user. The according interface is divided into two parts: Account access and service's meta data access.
 
* Manage granted accesses of external services that can access a users data on his behalf, called "grants".
