Extension: Create or update a file in an extension

This API is extremely reliable and will not be broken unless absolutely necessary.






Create or update a file in the extension with the name {extensionName}. {externalpath} is the relative path to the file in the extension. By default, files in an extension are stored at %StaticContentRoot%\Extensions\{extensionName}\. {overwrite} is optional and set to false by default.


File to create or update

Return value


The string contains the external path to the file.

Optional parameters

  • {overwrite}: If this parameter is set to false, which is the default setting, an error (409) is returned if the file that is provided in the body has the same name as an already existing file. If this parameter is set to true, the file provided in the body will overwrite any file with the same name.
