Retrieve a List of Articles

You can use this API request to retrieve a list of articles currently posted to your AnswerHub site.

/services/v2/article.json

You can use the following parameters in your retrieve a list of articles request:

Other options: wrap, v1

🚧

Permissions & Notes:

  • You must have the View list kbentry permission under Custom Roles in the Advanced Editor.

  • We added this request in version 1.6.3.

Sample Request

A GET retrieve a list of articles request to retrieve a list of articles sent to https://apidocs.cloud.answerhub.com using a human-readable Username/Password (answerhub/test123) would look like this:

curl 
-u answerhub:test123 
-H "Accept: application/json" 
-H "Content-type: application/json" 
-X GET "https://apidocs.cloud.answerhub.com/services/v2/article.json" -v

👍

Use of pageSize:

Note, we used the parameter pageSize=1 to decrease the size of the response. Without this parameter, the response will return a list based on a default value of pageSize. To change pages, add the page=n parameter to the end of the request with n being the desired page number.

Sample Response

Successful Response:

  • HTTP Status 200 - OK
    (We reduced the example list from the actual list size because it is too long.)

Now both developers and operations are happy: Developers can focus on writing code and innovating, without needing to spend large amounts of time on building integration hubs, testing environments or other tasks typically associated with an operational process.

Its single intuitive user interface acts as a central point of management for the all the automated processes in the enterprise.

We want automation to not just be an afterthought in production-we want to better integrate it into the DevOps process.</li><li><strong>Automation-as-code</strong>: We shift-left automation to the developers, so they can deliver both the application code and the automation code at the same time. Once again, we better integrate automation into the continuous delivery process.</li><li><strong>Critical path management</strong>: We have added a powerful intelligence into workflows, which enables dynamic runtime estimations and predicts potential issues with certain paths in the workflow execution. This can, for instance, be extremely valuable when automating financial close processes; closing time is always a source of stress for finance teams, so getting an accurate forecast on execution time is essential. It can also be very helpful to estimate the deployment time of an application and evaluate the risks when releasing into production.</li><li><strong>New integrations</strong>: We've incorporated an integration with password vaults to further improve the security of automation, as there is no longer any need to share passwords. Furthermore, there are new integrations with existing CA automation products: Autosys, ESP, CA-7, and CDD. This allows users to extend automation policies into new areas while maintaining their investment in the training and knowledge of existing technologies.</li></ul> \n <p>By tightening the alignment between development and operations, our new release enhances intelligent capabilities to provide large-scale, complex environments with the capability of attaining continuous delivery. By bringing greater intelligence to your ops teams, developers are also freed from the shackles of managing releases, instead focusing on the innovation and coding aspects of their roles. Ultimately, this will bring an unprecedented level of consistency, speed, and reliability to your entire enterprise.</p> \n</div></div></div>",

            "body": "<div class=\"fr-view clearfix\"><div class=\"fr-view clearfix\"><div> \n <p>Mainframe systems are the IT backbone and workhorse for many organizations, providing instrumental back-end transaction processing, databases, and reporting functionality. Although they are often thought of as legacy systems, this misleading characterization discounts the fact that these systems often hold extremely critical business logic and still receive heavy investment.</p> \n <p>Organizations that develop and test applications in mainframe environments have struggled to keep up with users' increasing demands for innovative, new functionality, especially considering the trend many organizations are adopting in moving to Agile development and testing practices. For one, mainframe development can require decades' worth of legacy expertise, which is in danger of disappearing as a generation of workers approach retirement. In addition, modern, client-facing applications driven by the mainframe are being accessed by growing numbers of users via smartphones, tablets, and other devices ? stressing mainframes in unforeseen ways.
