- REST Method: POST
- Method Access: public
|fileid||int||identifies a file by ID|
|to||string?||Optional restore-to page to override a removed file's original parent id|
|authenticate||bool?||Force authentication for request (default: false)|
|OK||200||The request completed successfully|
|Bad Request||400||Invalid input parameter or request body|
|Forbidden||403||Administrator access is required|

When a file is restored, it is moved from the file archive to the destination page. If the caller does not specify a destination page, the file is restored to its original page. A placeholder page will be created if the original page no longer exists.
C# Code Sample: Restore a File
The following code example restores file with ID 456 to the home page:
Plug p = Plug.New("http://deki-hayes/@api/deki"); p.At("users", "authenticate").WithCredentials("admin", "password").Get(); p.At("archive", "files", "restore", "456").With("to", "home").Post();
Curl Code Sample: Restore a File
This following command restores file with archive.fileID = 1 to its original page.
curl -u admin:password -H "Content-Type: text/plain" -d "" -i http://mindtouch.address/@api/deki/archive/files/restore/1
- Basic HTTP authentication. Sends a username and password to server so it can verify whether a user is of privilege to perform specific operation.
- Specifies a POST request. The quotations ("") are used to imply no data is to be sent.
- Replaces or appends an HTTP header. The "Content-Type" header specifies the MIME type of the value attached to the property. In this case, it doesn't really matter, but use text/plain as a precaution.
- Includes the HTTP response header in the output. Useful for debugging.
- ADMIN permission is required to execute above command. Otherwise, a 403 HTTP response (Forbidden) will be returned.
File with file.archive ID = 66 was accidently deleted and needs to be restored. The following command accomplishes that:
curl -u admin:password -H "Content-Type: text/plain" -d "" -i http://192.168.59.128/@api/deki/archive/files/restore/66
