Crownpeak Digital Experience Management (DXM) Access API Helper for Node

Crownpeak Digital Experience Management (DXM) Access API Helper for Node has been constructed to assist in developing client-side applications that leverage DXM for content management purposes.

Usage

Installation instructions:

npm i crownpeak-dxm-accessapi-helper --save-dev

or 

yarn add crownpeak-dxm-accessapi-helper

In your application, make a reference to the API class:

const CrownpeakApi = require('crownpeak-dxm-accessapi-helper');
const crownpeak = new CrownpeakApi();

See https://developer.crownpeak.com/Documentation/AccessAPI/index.html for a full guide to using the Crownpeak DXM Access API.

Logging in

Before you are able to call any functions within the Access API, you must first login to your CMS instance.

crownpeak.login(
    "username",
    "password",
    "cms.crownpeak.net",
    "cms-instance",
    "api-key"
);

Asset functions

Example

Some functions take simple parameters, such as an asset id, whereas others require a Request object to be created. For example, to create an asset, use the CreateRequest class:

const request = new crownpeak.Asset.CreateRequest(
    name, 
    destinationFolderId,
    modelId,
    type, // 2 for a file, or 4 for a folder, see crownpeak.Util.AssetType
    devTemplateLanguage,
    templateId,
    workflowId,
    subtype // see crownpeak.Util.AssetSubType
);

Once created, pass this request to the appropriate function:

let response = await crownpeak.Asset.create(request);

The response will contain a number of standard properties, plus one or more others that are specific to the type of request that was made. The standard properties are:

{
    "resultCode": "conWS_Success", // See crownpeak.Util.ResponseMessages
    "errorMessage": "",
    "internalCode": 0,
    "isSuccessful": true
}

You should test the isSuccessful property before attempting to read other properties.

For asset functions, commonly an asset will also be returned, for example:

{
    "asset": {
        "id": 12345,
        "label": "My Test Asset",
        "type": 2,
        "folder_id": 1234,
        // [...]
    }
}
