Fetching assets

Fetching assets

Prepr stores all your digital assets in the Media Library (in Prepr: the Media tab), making it easy to access, view, and manage your assets. You can add, edit, download, or delete files whenever needed; categorize, search, and filter assets on multiple attributes to find the right one quickly.

Fetching all assets

GET: /assets

The pagination of the asset endpoint is identical to the content items endpoints.

Query by ID

Since IDs are unique in Prepr, you can find the asset you want using the id argument. Here is an example that demonstrates how to query an asset with the ID "535c1e-...":

GET: /assets/535c1e-4d52-4794-9136-71e28f2ce4c1

Query by Reference Id

The reference Id is useful for storing external asset Ids. For example, during the migration of assets from another system. Check out the Migration doc for more details.

Here is an example that demonstrates how to query an asset with a Reference Id value.

GET: /assets?reference_id[0][eq]=123456

The API does not check that reference Ids are unique. So, keep this in mind when setting these values.
