Sample Requests

A POST Anonymize User request to anonymize a user called usertoanonymizetwo (userId=121) sent to https://apidocs.cloud.answerhub.com using a human-readable Username/Password (answerhub/test123) would look like this:

-H “Accept:application/json” 
-H "Content-Type:application/json"
“https://apidocs.cloud.answerhub.com/services/v2/users/gdpr/121/anonymizeusercontent.json”

This request below uses the query param anonTo=<user_id_to_transfer_anonymized_user_content>
userId 122 is anon3user
userId 114 is usertocatchanon3data

curl 
-x POST 
–u answerhub:test123 
-H “Accept:application/json” 
-H "Content-Type:application/json"
“https://apidocs.cloud.answerhub.com/services/v2/users/gdpr/122/anonymizeusercontent.json?anonTo=114”

  • 200 / {“message”:””}
  • 400 / {"error" : ""}
