SugarSync API description ^

Requirements

A valid SugarSync user name, with password.

A valid SugarSync developer access key id with private access key.

Authorization

POST the following XML to https://api.sugarsync.com/authorization.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <authRequest>
        <username>$username</username>
        <password>$password</password>
        <accessKeyId>$akeyid</accessKeyId>
        <privateAccessKey>$pacckey</privateAccessKey>
    </authRequest>

The result is a small XML data package.

    </authorization>

Most important is the Location: header of the result:

    Location: https://api.sugarsync.com/authorization/Oz3odjluQU6n6RCA

This url (which is much longer than shown here) has to be passed as Authorization: header to all subsequent calls.

Note that it is only of limited validity, e.g., 1 hour.

Requests

When autorization is complete, further requests are common https: get requests. Almost all of them return XML data. For convenience, the XML data is shown here as a Perl structure.

WARNING: When transforming the XML to Perl (e.g., with XML::Simple) be careful about repeating entries. E.g.,

  <foo>
   <bar>111</bar>
   <bar>222</bar>
  <foo>

will return { foo => [ 111, 222 ] }, but

  <foo>
   <bar>111</bar>
  <foo>

will return { foo => 111 }

      'receivedShare' => [
        {
          'owner' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/contact/123456/654321',
          'permissions' => {
            'readAllowed' => {
              'enabled' => 'true'
            },
            'writeAllowed' => {
              'enabled' => 'false'
            }
          },
          'timeReceived' => '2011-08-21T06:00:14.000-07:00',
          'ref' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/receivedShare/123456/:sc:654321:186_8178842',
          'sharedFolder' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:186_8178842',
          'displayName' => 'boeken'
        }
      ]
    };

sharedFolder

Returns slightly more detailed data for the shared folder.

    {
      'sharing' => {
        'shareList' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/sharelist/:sc:654321:186_8178842',
        'readAllowed' => {
          'enabled' => 'true'
        },
        'writeAllowed' => {
          'enabled' => 'false'
        },
        'enabled' => 'true'
      },
      'parent' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:2',
      'files' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:186_8178842/contents?type=file',
      'collections' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:186_8178842/contents?type=folder',
      'contents' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:186_8178842/contents',
      'dsid' => '/sc/654321/186_8178842',
      'timeCreated' => '2011-08-20T10:41:52.000-07:00',
      'displayName' => 'boeken'
    };

As all folders, the sharedFolder can contain files and collections (subfolders). Retrieving the contents link returns both files and folders:

    {
      'collection' => [
        {
          'ref' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:186_8179242',
          'contents' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:186_8179242/contents',
          'type' => 'folder',
          'displayName' => 'AA'
        },
        {
          'ref' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:4497561_97048',
          'contents' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/folder/:sc:654321:4497561_97048/contents',
          'type' => 'folder',
          'displayName' => 'BB'
        },
      ],
      'file' => {
          'fileData' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/file/:sc:654321:4497561_327763/data',
          'lastModified' => '2011-08-28T23:03:48.000-07:00',
          'presentOnServer' => 'true',
          'mediaType' => 'application/octet-stream',
          'ref' => 'https://api.sugarsync.com/file/:sc:654321:4497561_327763',
          'size' => '695067',
          'displayName' => 'De woorden van Babel - Andreu Carranza.epub'
      },
      'hasMore' => 'false',
      'end' => '26',
      'start' => '0'
    };

This example shows one file and two collections. Note that files and collections may be returned as scalars instead of ARRAYs if there's only one element. See XML::Simple for details.

Also note the hasMore attribute, that (I assume) indicates whether all data was returned with this call. Likewise, start and end seem to indicate the first and last entry. I haven't found out what to do in case hasMore is true.

Collections

See sharedFolder,

Files

To retrieve file data, use a normal https get.

For a mirror, you might want to set the file times according to the lastModified attribute.

Miscellaneous ^

When the authorization token expires, you'll get a HTTP 401 Unauthorized result. Renew the token and retry.

Server errors like 503 Server unavailable may occur.
