File extension: Create

This API is reliable and breaking changes are unlikely.






Add a file extension to the list of allowable file extensions; only files with extensions specified in this list and a whitelist can be uploaded to a static content library. Specify the file extension and the ID of the associated mime type in the request body; to get a list of available mime types and their IDs, refer to Mime type: Get. If a mime type is not in the list, you must add it so that the system can generate a mime type ID; refer to Mime type: Create. You can then associate the mime type ID with the file extension that you want to add.


{ "name": "abc", "mimeType": { "id": "76eb31f9-cb51-4695-b681-0f84f22c8407" } }
