Files.UpdateMetadata

Hi,
I need some help with this call. Can you provide with an sample what this request should look like? The documentation states the tagIds field is a list of GUIDs.

But when I use MetadataCatalogue.GetAllFields to pull back metadata fields, some of the fields don't have a GUID.

I picked one with GUID available but the response indicated the field doesn't exist.

I tried using "id" instead of "guid" but it returned API error.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Files.UpdateMetadata

Hi John,

The metadata parameter is a map of tag to an array of values, for example:

{"labels": ["test"]}

The other thing here is that the documentation is missing a key point: the key into `metadata` should be the same as that used to look up the field, and it can be supplied as either the numeric ID or the tag name.

So a full query would look like:

{"assetId": 64596065520,"tagId":"labels","metadata":{"labels":["token"]}}

or

{"assetId": 64596065520,"tagId":34,"metadata":{34:["token"]}}
