Retrieving Answers through API
Note: You're located in section for advanced users. Please use this section only if you're familiar with API's.
Use the following URL to retrieve answers:
|limit||Limits the number of answers returned. The maximum limit is 1000. If you need all your records, you'll have to use this parameter combined with page.||Integer||250|
|page||Useful to retrieve answers in chunks.||Integer||1|
|category_id||Retrieve answers inside specific category||Integer|
It's possible to scope the answers within a specific language. To do so, just provide the desired language in the URL using the following syntax:
id,question_id,body 80028,155573,<p>Hey</p> 80027,155572,"<p>Changes the account's domain name for hosted service. If account does not yet have a ISL domain, the domain with passed name will be created.</p>"
By default, answers will be showed in CSV format. However, it's possible to retrieve them in one more format: XLS. To do so, you just need to specify the format in the URL, as follows:
my_account.helpjuice.com/api/answers.xls => to retrieve XLS spreadsheet
- Blank response: if you are not seeing any data, or you are receiving a corrupted file (in case of XLS), that's because your Knowledge Base is marked as internally only. Solution: if you are using a browser to access the data, just sign in before making the request. Otherwise, you'll need to use your Private Key (accessible under Settings > API Credentials) in a request parameter called api_key, like:
