I have to generate a huge amount of data records.

With the "Crate data record" button in my inbox this will take to much time.

I tried to program a small application (C#) for automated creation, but i have problems finding the correct methods for accessing the data record dialog in the API.

Can someone help me with a code snippet or somethig else?

To create a data-only document, I have not used C#/.NET, but have it working from Visual Foxpro (or any language that can manipulate an HTTP request object).

The resource in play is this one:

/DocuWare/Platform/FileCabinets/{cabinbet guid}/Documents/

and then once I have an HTTP request object instance established (in this case, "_DWPlatformService"), the code to POST the request looks like this:

_DWPlatformService.Open("POST", "<URL involving the resource listed above>")
* Need to use a Content-Type of "application/xml" otherwise the POST will simply create a document with the index data XML inside it.
_DWPlatformService.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/xml")
_DWPlatformService.Send(<POST data>)

The POST data looks something like this, for a cabinet including indexes COMPANY and SENDER as an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="/DocuWare/Platform/Content/standard.xslt"?>
<Document xmlns:s="" xmlns="">
        <Field FieldName="COMPANY"><String>Data Only Company</String></Field>
        <Field FieldName="SENDER"><String>Data Only Sender</String></Field>

This will create a data-only document in the desired file cabinet.

Thank you.

I developed a solution with a empty PDF but this should do better.

We were doing that as well before we figured this out -- happy to help!

A colleague was able to help me today.
He knew this function from GAPI and could show me the API variant.

It works in C# quite simply via ShemaExtentions:

SchemaExtensions.PostToUploadDocumentForDocumentAsync(<DwConnection>, <ArchiveGuid>,<Document() with the IndexData>);

Glad you figured it out in the .NET environment, and thanks for posting (will be good for future reference when searching for soulutions!).
