AEM REST APIs

Avatar

Former Community Member

Hi All,

I am wondering if I can compete the following use cases with the AEM 6.2 REST APIs or if I will need to hit the SOAP APIs?

 

GET /folders/contents
GET /folders/{id}/contents
GET /folders/metadata
GET /folders/{id}/metadata
GET /files | GET /files/{id}
GET /files/{id}/metadata
GET /files/metadata

 

Thanks!!

AEM does not expose a WSDL. You cannot communicate with AEM using SOAP. You can, however write a custom service that consumes a 3rd party SOAP service:

You need to use GET. POST requests to invoke AEM operations. 

Hope this helps...
