  • Method: GET
  • Server: https://[app key here]-[site_ID here] Take a look at the Authorize your API calls document for more info on how this URL is formed.
    • Note: When building apps always use relative request URLs. Do not use the "full" URL above because you might have problems running your app on a different site as the site_ID parameter will be different.
  • Path: /api/v2/admin/sites/[siteId]/webapps/[webappName]/items/[itemID]/categories
    • Alternatively, use "current" instead of [siteId]
  • Authorization header: This should contain the authorization token. Here is how to obtain the token.
  • Required Permissions: View Web App Items
