Parameters

privileged (bool) –

class viktor.api_v1.EntityList(api, relation, origin, entity_type_names, include_params, *, privileged=False)

Warning

Do not instantiate this class directly, it is created by the API.

Object which resembles a list of Entity’s.

Most commonly used list operations are supported:

# indexing
children = entity.children()
children[0]  # first child entity
children[-1]  # last child entity

# length
number_of_children = len(children)

# for loop
for child in children:
    # perform operation on child

API

class viktor.api_v1.API

Starting point of making an API call to, for example, retrieve properties of a parent or child entity.

Note that the permissions of a user (group) are reflected on the permissions of this API call, e.g. if a user only has read-navigate or read-basic permission, calling the params (read-all) of the object using this API will NOT work for this specific user.

Example:

current_entity = API().get_entity(entity_id)
parent = entity.parent()
parent_params = parent.last_saved_params
get_entity(id_, *, privileged=False)

Get the entity with given id.

Parameters
  • id – entity_id

  • privileged (bool) –

    bypass the user access restrictions managed by the admin of an application.
