We are happy to announce the availability of Photos API, another Autodesk Build specific API!
Photos is one of the modules in Autodesk Build. It provides a single, unified place to view and manage photos and videos in Autodesk Build. This is useful, such as for documenting progress photos, informal communication and material tracking. Everyone on your project can upload photos and videos. These files will all be available in the Photos gallery, but they can also be attached as a reference to issues, RFIs, submittals and forms in UI. Check product help for details.
In this first release, two read endpoints are provided:
- POST photos:filter
- This endpoint is to retrieve a set of medias (photos or videos) with an option to filter by properties such as creation date and media type
- GET photos/:photoId
- This endpoint returns a single media (photo or video) with a given photo id.
- To use Photos API, you will need to include ACC API category when generating Client ID in Create App page. See this blog post for more detail about new ACC specific API category.
- Photos API supports 3-legged authentication only.
- Currently read-only.
For more information about the Photos API, please check out the official API documentation on the Forge developer portal.
