Oracle® Beehive RESTful Web Services API Reference
Release 2 (188.8.131.52)
The Metadata and Relations category enables you to manage metadata associated with Oracle Beehive artifacts and entities.
A category is a hierarchical structure of designations that may be applied to entities, including all of the artifacts stored in a workspace. Categories always exist at the enterprise scope. Refer to the section "Managing Categories" in the module "Managing Oracle Beehive Workspaces" in Oracle Beehive Administrator's Guide in Oracle Beehive Documentation Library for more information.
A label may be applied to many entities. When you perform a GET on the label resource, Oracle Beehive RESTful Web Services returns a representation that includes the IDs of all the entities to which the label has been applied.
If a label has been applied to
a large number of artifacts, you may limit the number of entities
returned by the /labl resource. Use the resource
is the ID of the label. When you POST to this resource to retrieve the
entities to which the specified label has been applied, pass a
predicateAndSortListParameters object. In this object, you may control
which IDs are returned, including the count limit.
If an object has been tagged by
a shared tag, which is represented by the label resource, the label
will appear in the object's
member. To determine if the object has been tagged by the current
logged-in user or another user, retrieve the label. The label contains
member, which is a list of all objects that have been tagged by this
entitiesmember, then the object has been tagged by the current logged-in user.
entitiesmember, then the object has been tagged by a user other than the logged-in user.
The Label members changeStatus and viewerProperties are inherited from Artifact. However, these two members are currently not supported. You may not create or update a Label's viewerProperties, and you may not update a Label's changeStatus. If you read or list a Label, the value of its changeStatus will be READ, and its viewerProperties member will be null.
