How to get latest revision of a document using Rest API ?

Hello, 

I am using Windchill 11.1 M010.

I want to get latest revision of a document using Rest API.

 

I tried to use filter,

$filter : latestiteration eq '1',

 

but, this gives "Invalid expression".

 

Is there any way to get the latest revision of a document through Rest API?

I got this tip from one of my Windchill colleagues...

Can you try with

 

"Latest": true

 

instead of latestiteration : 1?

Thanks,

but,

This also doesn't work. It says "Latest" is Invalid property

Could you please post the complete request here?

Including any headers for Post, that contain any additional parameters.

 

This might help in seeing if there's anything off in the request itself.

Hello,

below I am sharing my Javascript code. In this code, I am passing typeID, and properties (attributes),  also in a $filter I am setting criteria, so there I want to set a filter to fetch only latest version documents.

 

var params = {
type: 'GET',
url: me.getRestUrl() + "/structure/objects",
queryParams: {
'$select': properties,

'$filter': "endswith(number ,'"+number+"') and state eq 'Released' ",

'navigationCriteria': navigationCriteria,
'typeId': selectedTypeId,

}
};
// result: JSON
var jsonResult = me.processJSONRequest(params);

 

 

 

 

I tried with,

$filter : "latestIteration eq '1'",

but this displays all the version of a document. eg. A.1 and B.1 and B.2

I only want to fetch the latest i.e B.2

 

@mneumann did you got my question?

@shindemayur

yes, but unfortunately I can't help you here.

Someone from the Windchill Customization team might - you might have to open a Support Case for this one.

Assuming you have access to a windchill server and that windchill is accessed as: 

http://windchill.yourdomain.com:80/Windchill

you can access the below REST call with this URL 

http://windchill.yourdomain.com:80/Windchill/servlet/odata/DocMgmt/Documents?$expand=Revisions

As the above REST call is a GET call you can try the above URL in a browser and you will get the response in xml format.

You want to try non GET operations like POST, DELETE, PATCH, etc, with more control over your REST request, use a REST client like Postman. With tools like Postman, you can get the REST response in JSON also by adding header 

Content-Type: application/json
