Overview

The Get Templates commands allow you to return the content of a template specified by ID or name.  This command returns the template id, name, subject line, Plain Text body, and HTML body of each template.  

Arguments

The Get Template commands require the following arguments: Command, Realm, Password, and either Template name or Template ID.

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=gettemplatebyid&template_id=42

The command is ‘gettemplatebyid’, the realm is ‘myrealm’, the password is ‘mypass’, and the ID is '42'.

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=gettemplatebyname&template_name=mytemplate

The command is ‘gettemplatebyname’, the realm is ‘myrealm’, the password is ‘mypass’, and the name is 'mytemplate'.

The Get Template commands support the following arguments:

 

Name

Req?

Description

Argument

Command

Yes

Defines the command to use.

cmd=[gettemplatebyid, gettemplatebyname]

c=[gettemplatebyid, gettemplatebyname]

Realm

Yes

Name of the realm to run the command.  This is required, and the command will fail if the realm and password do not match.

realm= [realm_name]

r=[realm_name]

Password

Yes

Authentication code for API access.  This is required, and the command will fail if the realm and password do not match.

pwd=[password]

p=[password]

Version   Version of API to use.  Data may be added to newer versions of the API.  To alleviate issues for users who have already coded file parsing, new columns are only displayed if the version is included.

version=[version_number]

8.4.0 = folder_id

Template Identification Yes Name or ID of the template to return.  If there are spaces in the name, you can replace the space with + or %20 to avoid possible issues with spaces in a URL.

template_name=[template_name]

or

template_id=[template_id]

Output Format

 

To specify the format of the list output, use one of two arguments.  If no argument is included, the default output is space-delimited plain text string, which may not include all data columns.

csv=1 or

output_format=[csv,csv_tab, csv_pipe,xml]

Header

 

To define the data with a label, use the Header argument.  This can only be used in conjunction with the output format, and does not affect XML.

headers=[0,1]

DEFAULT==0

 

Example

Using all commands and arguments (please note the command is wrapped for display purposes only):

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=gettemplatebyid&template_id=42&output_format=csv&headers=1&version=8.4.0

Successful results return:

"Template ID","Template Name","Template Subject","Body Plain","Body HTML","Template Description","Folder ID" "42","mytemplate","My Subject Line","this is a Plain test","this is an HTML test","","2"

If not output format is defined, plain results return:

"Template ID","Template Name" "42","mytemplate"

Results

The Get Template commands output either the results of the search or a FAILURE message. 

SUCCESS

The Get Template commands do not explicitly return a Success code.  Instead, it outputs the template data.  Use the Output Format argument to return the results in a specific format. 

FAILURE

A Get Template command will fail for several reasons.  The result format is:

FAILURE: [Reason]
