how to create a personal folder via de SOAP/REST api


Using the soap service, we can successfully create users dynamically.

Now we would like to dynamically create a persnal folder for these users via the API.

I have tried the REST api (POST /Panopto/api/v1/folders), but no luck there:


{"Name":"test","Description":"test2","Parent":"<guid of Users folder>"}


{"Error":{"ErrorCode":"","Message":"createValue must be provided","Success":false,"ErrorSource":null}}

We do not want to use the webinterface because we have a high number of users, and want to automate this process.

Any ideas on how to do this?

    Hi Kevin,

    You can use the SOAP API to retrieve or create a user's personal folder. You can use the ISessionManagement.GetPersonalFolderForUser SOAP endpoint, which will create a personal folder for a user, if one doesn't already exist, when called by either that user or by a user with the administrator role in Panopto. The endpoint will return the user's personal folder whether it already existed or if it was created.

    I hope that this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Sorry, if it's not clear, the WSDL for your instance will be at https://{HOST}/Panopto/PublicAPI/4.6/SessionManagement.svc?wsdl for the SessionManagement interface, for instance.
