Long-running operations

The user initiates a long-running operation by sending a request to the appropriate API endpoint, which returns an object containing information about the initiated operation. An example of such a request and response:

Example Request
PUT api/2.0/files/rooms/1234/archive
Host: yourportal.onlyoffice.com
Content-Type: application/json
Accept: application/json

  "DeleteAfter": true
Example Response
    "error": "",
    "finished": false,
    "id": "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000",
    "operation": 0,
    "processed": "0",
    "progress": 0

The following endpoints return the operation status:

To track the operation progress, you must periodically execute a GET request to the following endpoint:

GET api/2.0/files/fileops

This request returns an array of the current operations as objects similar to the one described above.

In this array, the ID of the previously initiated operation is returned. If finished is not true, or progress or percents is not 100, wait a while and then execute the files/fileops/ request again. This loop is repeated until the operation completes or the error text appears in the error property.
