• RE: Sending a login token/cookies in Rest Command

    Hi Joe,

    Cheers for the response and the link, I'm not a dev by any means so apologies if this subsequent response doesn't make a massive amount of sense.

    Effectively what I am trying to do is make a GET call from a third party/web app but using either the login token or cookies in the request, using something like https://apitester.com/ format or the 'Get Data, from Web' in excel as an example.

    The software we're trying to connect to can only make a single REST call to retrieve the data and I can get a request to work in python using a 'Session' with two calls but I cannot get it to work without the initial separate call to create the session with cookies.

    Example of the code I can get to work is below. I'd love to be able to just use Section 2 of the call without the need for section 1.
    SECTION 1 - 

    import requests
    import time
    import json

    url = "https://SERVER/DocuWare/Platform/Account/LogOn"
    userlogininfo={'Username':'user', 'Password':'password', 'Organization':'org'}

    # === First Request ===
    session = requests.Session()
    response = session.post(url,userlogininfo)


    # === Subsequent request within session ===
    updateurl = "https://server/DocuWare/Platform/FileCabinets/b1114fe7-7e73-4c19-8647-efe60d0be069/Documents"

    payload = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\"?>\r\n\r\n<?xml-stylesheet type=\"text/xsl\" href=\"/DocuWare/Platform/Content/standard.xslt\"?>\r\n\r\n<DocumentIndexFields xmlns:s=\"http://dev.docuware.com/schema/public/services\" xmlns=\"http://dev.docuware.com/schema/public/services/platform\">\r\n\r\n    <Field FieldName=\"DOCUMENT_TYPE\" FieldLabel=\"Document Type\">\r\n\r\n        <String>UPDATED</String>\r\n\r\n    </Field>\r\n\r\n</DocumentIndexFields>"
    headers = {
        'cache-control': "no-cache",
        'Accept': "application/json"

    response = session.request("GET", updateurl)

  • Sending a login token/cookies in Rest Command

    Hi there, 

    is it possible to send either login token or cookies in the payload/header of a Rest request?

    If it is, would anybody be able to give an example of how this needs to look in the request please?
  • Get Data in excel

    Has anybody successfully connected DocuWare cloud to the Get Data --> From Web section within Excel? 

    If so, would you mind sharing how you were able to do this or any tips?

    Cheers Casey.

    Unfortunatley, that doesn't assist unfortunately as we're kooking at spreadsheets that have a calculation that would lookup another speadsheet to complete. I wish it was as simple as a URL added to the doc.

    Appreciate the assitance though =)

  • Linked Spreadsheets

    Has anybody found a way of getting around spreadsheets that are linked to each other being held in DocuWare? Particularly when they are working spreadsheets that are edited frequently?

  • Did you ever get a resolution

    Did you ever get a resolution to this Jonathan?

  • Hi Mark,

    Hi Mark,

    Drop me an email and I can arrange for one of the Sales Team to give you a quick demo.



  • Not for the DocuWare forms

    Not for the DocuWare forms option but we do offer a 3rd party application that will do just that. Works online/offline, includes full calculations and can be submitted to DocuWare when the phone/tablet gets internet connectivity.

    It's pretty simple but would involve a manual install of 6.12 in your Virtual Environment, all you need is a DB backup, the documents and a Spare Install Server/DB.
