List projects

These return the projects that the user has access to. The returned data is the same as in the projects lists (all active, archived, favorite and search) in the web interface.

GET /projects.json
GET /projects/archived.json
GET /projects/favorite.json
GET /projects/search/urlencoded_string.json

The responses from these requests are paginated and /count.json and /page/num.json can be used. See the section on pagination for more information. Example: GET /projects/page/2.json

If successful, the response code is 200 OK with the results of the call in the response body.

Example response body:

[
  {
    "id": 24,
    "name": "Project created with the API",
    "tags": "client,seo,website",
    "managed_by": {
      "id": 1,
      "name": "John Boss"
    },
    "archived": false,
    "favorite": true,
    "num_files": 0,
    "updated_on": "2014-07-04 14:02:14"
  },
  {
    "id": 12,
    "name": "www.fictionalgadgetsite.com",
    "tags": "client",
    "managed_by": {
	    "id": 3,
	    "username": "claire",
	    "email_address": "claire@teampasswordmanager.com",
	    "name": "Claire Wood",

    "favorite": false,
    "num_files": 0,
    "updated_on": "2014-07-03 19:13:37"
  }
]

List subprojects

These return the immediate subprojects of a project (or root) that the user has access to.

GET /projects/ID/subprojects.json
GET /projects/ID/subprojects/ACTION.json

Where:

  • ID: internal id of the project, 0 for root (will return first level projects).
  • ACTION: currently can only be new_pwd. When used, the "disabled" field in the response will be set to true for those projects where the user cannot create passwords.

If successful, the response code is 200 OK with the results of the call in the response body.

Example response body:

[
  {
    "id": 13,
    "name": "Clients",
    "has_children": true,
    "archived": false,
    "favorite": false,
    "disabled": false,
    "num_pwds": 1,
    "num_pwds_branch": 33
  },
  {
    "id": 17,
    "name": "Company projects",
    "has_children": true,
    "archived": false,
    "favorite": false,
    "disabled": false,
    "num_pwds": 0,
    "num_pwds_branch": 16
  },
  {
    "id": 14,
    "name": "Internal",
    "has_children": true,
    "archived": false,
    "favorite": false,
    "disabled": false,
    "num_pwds": 0,
    "num_pwds_branch": 21
  }
]

Notes:

  • num_pwds contains the number of passwords of the project that the user has access to.
  • num_pwds_branch contains the number of passwords of the project and its subprojects (if any) that the user has access to.
  • The response list is sorted by project name.
  • The information returned is the same as in the projects tree in the web interface.

  • Not all users "see" the same tree. Only Admins have the complete view. Users that are not Admins can see a different tree depending on their permissions.
  • Results are not paginated.
  • Read only users can also use this method.
