COGS #2 by Z-GrimV
We are happy to announce the release of an improved API. After many years the api had become a little confusing and was not keeping up with changes to its backend systems. We therefore decided to redesign parts and fix some of the confusing naming and behaviour.

These changes are versioned so if you are using version prior to 20150416 there will be no change in behaviour, we plan to support the old api for around a year.

Summary of Changes

The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.

These endpoints were removed and their functionality is provided by newer ones

  • /stash/folder
  • /stash/media
  • /stash/metadata
  • /stash/move/file
  • /stash/move/folder

New endpoints to manage stacks

  • POST /stash/move/{stackid} - moves stacks
  • POST /stash/position/{stackid} - change the position of a stack within a parent stack
  • POST /stash/update/{stackid} - update stack details (title, description)
  • GET /stash/{stackid} - fetch stack details, returns stash_metadata object
  • GET /stash/{stackid}/contents - list stack contents, supports pagination

New endpoints to manage items

  • GET /stash/item/{itemid} - fetch an item, returns stash_metadata object
  • POST /stash/delete - delete an item by itemid

Stash Metadata object

  • Renamed fields folderid and stashid
  • Removed is_folder
  • Replaced keywords with tags

Any problems can be reported on the GitHub Issue Tracker.

I was hacked and my identity stolen by an artist from this site. If there is any moral disconnect between beauty and theft.. Please have this stopped.

Also anyone with outright mad skills that can help please do.

Not really sure where to put this, but just a fun idea.

A potential fun Christmas season idea would be to temporarily replace the "Give Llama" option with say give Ornament, Based on how many you get you could either get a fancier tree (see Charlie Brown Christmas), or more elaborate ornament or Xmas gift. It could be only a seasonal option reverting back to llama's or something else appropriate for other holidays, Easter egg, Heart (Valentines), Turkey (Thanksgiving)

Um I need your help! I'm trying to run DeviantART on Zapier and I'm trying to post a status and apparently it's saying that it's missing at least one paramater. I ALREADY have a parameter in the POST sign. Help???

I've written to the helpdesk (on Sept 11th) because I can't get my latest check (for art sold) released and sent out to me. They tell me it's a 'bug' and that the problem is being worked on by YOU ????

This below is what I got in a helpdesk reply.....
"Your ticket will now be set to "Solved" only because there is no longer any reason to keep the ticket open since the issue has been passed on to the Devious Technology Department as an active case."

SO, are you the people who are supposed to be working on this bug ???

Not sure whether to expect a reply to this, it doesn't look as if you answer anyone on this page :shrug:

I get repeated images (see imagecaps) when I open up the Deviant Art seem a waste of space. The Developers need to correct for this in their code.

Hello! I am NOW DEVELOPING my first DeviantArt Development Application in Embedded Linux...
Initial Goal: To Read Comments from Profile Page
Pending Goal #1: To Reply "You're Welcome!" to "Thank You" messages
Pending Goal #2: To Automatically Report Spammers & Scammers in Comments

However, I am NOW HALTED because I don't know what to specify under "OAuth2 Redirect URI Whitelist (Required)".

I am opting for "Authorization Code"...

Current Status: HALTED

Unable to have a desired screenshot for "client_id and client_secret that can be used with the OAuth2 API."

Current Error: {"error":"invalid_request","error_description":"Must provide an access_token to access this resource.","status":"error"}

Now moving my first DeviantArt Development Application to STATUS: HALTED while awaiting contact with DeviantArt Development Team.
