create business workspaces

Hey all,
I try to find the documentation of to create a businessworkspaces with rest api.
I know it has to be something like: "cs.exe/api/v2/businessworkspaces.
could someone help me out?


  • I created some business workspaces a few years ago. It was undocumented then, looks like it's still undocumented. So standard warning - as it's undocumented you can't rely on it. It can change without notice.

    I was using /api/v2/businessworkspaces/ and I posted a FormData object with:

    • template_id
    • name
    • type (hard coded to 848)
    • parent_id
    • mime_type (hard coded to "Business Workspace")

    There's a few other options available but as I didn't need them I haven't recorded what they were.

    To check if things have changed, create a workspace in the Smart UI and use either fiddler or the network tab in your browser to check the objects that were created and sent.

  • Kindly help me to create the business workspace using rest api

    Hi all,

    first of all you need to authenticate, and in order to do this, you need to retrieve the OTCSTICKET by calling http:///livelink/cs/api/v1/auth , using POST method, with following body arguments: username and password

    The above call will return the ticket

    "ticket": "hzEbtEV8naT9ZHhKzUsNKO6j04qKoWOt53HUrfMpWHXLACsxSqjpwC6iUt/LcPxaohitg/KO4XYrbu/eCUkRQiCCU+x61EJS"

    Copy the ticket value and place it in the header of the second request as OTCSTICKET key, calling POST http:///livelink/cs/api/v2/businessworkspaces/

    headers.add("OTCSTICKET", "hzEbtEV8naT9ZHhKzUsNKO6j04qKoWOt53HUrfMpWHXLACsxSqjpwC6iUt/LcPxaohitg/KO4XYrbu/eCUkRQiCCU+x61EJS");

    As body request you should pass two arguments: body and format

    body : {"name":"DG-0000008/07.01.2020","type":"848","parent_id":"202481","template_id":"158540","roles":{"categories":{"156619":{"156619_3":"DG-0000008/07.01.2020"}}}}
    format : xml

    Body argument description

    name - name of the business workspace that will be created
    type - 848 is default id for business workspace, use the same
    parent_id - folder nickname (id) where the business workspace will be created, use a folder nickname from your system
    template_id - business workspace template id that you are using
    categories - list of category id, if you are using categories.
    e.g 156619 category id
    156619_3 category attribute

    Response should be something similar with attched, where 281228 is the id of the newly created business workspace


    Thank you,
