Generate Archives API

150 atoms
Base tier


This Utility API lets you archive multiple files to a ZIP file.
Archiving files compresses them into a single file, which takes up less space than the original files. This is especially important when dealing with large files or when you need to store files for an extended period of time. A single file is much more easier to transfer or to share with others. Instead of having to send multiple files, you can send a single archive file, which is faster and more convenient.

All API requests to ApyHub services need to be authenticated. Currently we support tokens or basic authentication mechanisms. You can generate and view your existing credentials from your workspace settings (on the left side of the navbar) and go to “API Keys".
Points to note:
  • Credential secrets are generated on the fly and are not stored in plain text, so on generating a credential please save the secrets somewhere safe.
  • Use the apy-token as the header parameter to pass the token.
  • Use the Authorization header to send the basic authentication credentials.
