    Default Location of REST API Documentation?

    I have searched high and low on the site, but I can't seem to find the REST API Documentation for version 5. Anyone know where to look?

    Welcome to the forums

    Will this Admin UI Framework Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki be of help to you as it covers SOAP aswell ?

    I can't use the javascript client for the feature I am trying to implement. And the documentation in the Wiki isn't really for the SOAP API, but just describes the wrapper around the SOAP API.

    SOAP isn't suitable for my needs.

    Was a REST API started, and then just never completed/documented?

    Are you running NE or FOSS ? If NE you could drop support a line as I am sure they would be happy to help.

    Also, http://www.zimbra.com/forums/announc...r-profile.html please so we know what you are running

    Have you looked at User Migration - Zimbra :: Wiki?

    DKarp...since you are a Zimbra employee, perhaps you can furnish the master list of RESTful paths?

    All of the Wiki documentation I have seen solves a specific problem. Since I am not doing User Migration, that particular article isn't very helpful.

    Let me get more specific. I need to send a message to a distribution group using the REST API. I see the following curl command in the document you provided on user migration:

    curl -u schemersassword --data-binary @/tmp/rfc822.txt https://server/service/home/schemers/inbox

    My question is this: What is the restful path I would use to send a message to a distribution group called "feedback" would it be this:

    curl -u schemersassword --data-binary @/tmp/rfc822.txt https://server/service/distribution-...feedback/inbox

    ???

    Is that supported?

    No. At present, REST is only for "read" operations. You can fetch whatever you want in whatever format you want via REST, but you can't send or alter or delete things.

    I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if anyone ever did find out if there is any documentation for the REST API?

    Thanks very much jummo for your reply.

    I don't suppose there's an online version of that file, or you might be able to paste the contents of that file into this thread? I don't have access to a Zimbra server installation myself at this time.

    This is thread is still the first search result for "zimbra rest api", so if somebody could paste the contents of that file into the forum, I think a lot of people would find it really useful.

    Any help much appreciated,
    Rangi
