Root folder via Soap

When I want to access the root folder via the REST api, I can use '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'.

This doesn't appear to work when I use the Soap API. What should I use instead, if I want to do something like list all of the Root's subfolders?


  • I feel like I did this once. Have you tried either setting to to NULL or just leaving it blank?

    Thanks Chaz! That put me on the right track. I think my issue was trying to get the root folder directly by ID and find its subfolders from the child folders, which I think is what I was doing with REST.

    With the SOAP API it looks like the way is to use the ListFoldersRequest and pass in a Parent folder. Setting this to 'None' lists all folders in the site (glad I only did it on my test site!); but if I use 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 as the parent folder ID, that seems to get me all the children of the root.
