did anyone ever use python to launch a request using the REST API ? I need example to achieve that.

If you search the support form for "xmlhttp" and "serverxmlhttp" you will see some examples of accessing the API via Visual Foxpro, and others have asked about toolkits like node.js. The full list of entry points (URL resources) to consume via the API can be found here:

http://<your DW server>/DocuWare/Platform/Home/UriTemplatesDocumentation

(online DW documentation appears to not be loading this morning. Grrrr.)

At some point I wish DocuWare would post more generic examples (such as curl), or a Postman package with examples. As far as I know, though, no such pieces of documentation exist at this time. You just need to become familiar with how pythom does GETs and PUTs and POSTs and you should be off to the races.

Thanks Joe,

I will take a look on these ressources.

I am now able to connect to DocuWare using that syntax and retrieve metadatas :

url = '
datalog={'Username':'login', 'Password':'password', 'Organization':'MyOrg'},datalog)


Thanks for your help.

Glad you got that working! Python makes the coding look easy.  *smile*
