Two new operations have been added to the JavaScript API's Traversing functionality.

The getLineageFromUrl() operation returns the asset lineage of a specified URL. This function differs from the existing getLineage() operation by returning the specific asset lineage of a URL rather than returning all lineages of the asset.

This operation take the following parameters.

  • asset_url: the URL of the asset to get the lineage of.
  • dataCallback: the custom callback function.

An example usage of this operation is as follows:

Standard Mode:

getLineageFromUrl("http://www.example.com/site",  customDataCallbackFunc); 
Enhanced Mode:

The getUrlFromLineage() operation returns the URL of a specified asset lineage.

This operation takes the following parameters:

  • lineage: an array of asset IDs in lineage order, e.g. ["80", "85", "200"] or [{"assetid":"80"}, {"assetid":"85"}, {"assetid":"200"}].
  • root_url: a root URL to filter the results against multiple roots (optional).
  • protocol: a protocol to filter the results, e.g. http, https (optional).
  • dataCallback: the custom callback function.

An example usage of this operation is as follows:

Standard Mode:

getUrlFromLineage(["4206", "4437"], "", "https", customDataCallbackFunc);
Enhanced Mode:

   "lineage":["4206", "4437"],
