folderId from permalink

Wrike:

I know there is a way to call the API (v4), pass the parameter "permalink" along with a valid permalink string, and obtain some permalink data:

1) Where is the documentation for this? I looked under https://developers.wrike.com/ (under "methods") and could not find this information, although I know that this does work.

2) Is there a way to obtain the folderID for the corresponding permalink?

Thank you!

Hi Juan Villegas, thanks for reaching out with this 🙂

Indeed, there is no GET call to the "Permalink" endpoint, but the permalink parameter can be used with the "[GET] /folders" call in the "Get Folder Tree" method.

Therefore, it's possible to get folder/project details using permalink with an API query like this: GET /folders?permalink=https://www.wrike.com/open.htm?id=xxxxxxxxx. It returns the information about individual folder/project details (Folder ID, createdDate, title, etc):


Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

Hello Laura,

I went to the "Get Folder tree" method and I saw no reference anywhere about the "permalink" parameter or for that matter, any parameter of any method. 

  1. Could you please provide a link with complete documentation?
  2. It's my understanding that the ID pointed by the pink arrow above is really a "task ID", not a "folder ID". Could you please confirm? We are only using permalinks that point to "tasks", not "projects", or "folders", etc. I need to obtain the folder ID of the task so I can programmatically add subtasks to the task in question.

Thanks again for your help!

Hi Juan Villegas, thank you for elaborating on your use-case.

By clicking on each particular call you will expand the menu depicting the request which outlines all the parameters that you can use for the call, including "permalink": 

For the "Get Folder Tree" method, the ID that is returned is a folder ID. You can find the description of each response parameter on our Developers portal:​If you'd looking for a method to get a parent folder ID by a task permalink, you can use a "GET /tasks" call:
GET /tasks?permalink=https://www.wrike.com/open.htm?id=xxxxxxxxx&fields=[parentIds]

The parent folder ID is returned like this:

Hope it helps!
