renameAsset

Renames an asset.
The renameFiles parameter has been deprecated for prior releases and removed from renameAsset . The virtual file path is changed to match the new asset name (preserving the file extension), while physical file paths are not affected. API clients need to remove references to this parameter when updating to the new API version.

Authorized User Types

  • IpsUser
  • IpsAdmin
  • IpsCompanyAdmin
  • ImagePortalAdmin
  • ImagePortalContrib
  • ImpagePortalContribUser
The user must have read and write access to the asset.

Parameters

Input (renameAssetParam)
Name
Type
Required
Description
* companyHandle *
xsd:string
Yes
The handle to the company to which the asset belongs.
* assetHandle *
xsd:string
Yes
The handle to the asset you want to rename.
* newName *
xsd:string
Yes
Asset's new name.
* validateName *
xsd:boolean
Yes
If the validateName is true and the asset type requires a unique IPS ID, then the new name is checked for global uniqueness and renameAsset throws a fault if it is not unique.
Output (renameAssetReturn)
The IPS API does not return a response for this operation. See the description of the <ns1:validateName> element for caveats about this element.
