Getting information on a node

You can get information on a specific node in the repository by using its id. The resulting AtomPub XML document describes the node. You can tailor the information returned by providing HTML parameters.

URL format

Here is an example of a URL to retrieve information on a specific node in an Alfresco Content Services on-premise instance:

https://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.1/atom/id?id=5dba1525-44a6-45ed-a42e-4a155a3f0539

The response body is an AtomPub XML document which describes the CMIS capabilities in a standard way. See the CMIS specification for more details.

You can add the following optional HTTP parameters to the URL:
