How to use REST with email workflow actions

You can use the Web Content Manager REST service to create, read, update, and delete email workflow actions.

Create

An email action can be created by sending a POST request to the following URI:
/EmailAction
For example:


HTTP/1.1 POST /wps/mycontenthandler/wcmrest/EmailAction
Content-Type: application/atom+xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<entry xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:wcm="http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/wcm/8.0">
    <wcm:name>My Email Action</wcm:name>
    <link rel="library" href="/wps/mycontenthandler/wcmrest/Library/1f5955c8-38e7-41f9-9029-5c4c0b151976" xml:lang="en" label="Library"/>
    <content type="application/vnd.ibm.wcm+xml">
        <wcm:emailAction xmlns="http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/wcm/8.0" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
            <dateType>GENERAL_DATE_ONE</dateType>
            <offset unit="MONTH" amount="1" direction="AFTER">
                <time-of-day>11:53:00</time-of-day>
            </offset>
            <recipients>
                <stageApprovers>true</stageApprovers>
                <authors of-item="true" of-referencing-items="true"/>
                <owners of-item="true" of-referencing-items="true"/>
                <additional>
                    <distinguishedName>uid=WCMUT_Editor_A,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm</distinguishedName>
                    <atom:name>uid=WCMUT_Editor_A,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm</atom:name>
                </additional>
            </recipients>
            <emailText>this is some email text</emailText>
        </wcm:emailAction>
    </content>
</entry>

Update

An email action can be updated by sending a PUT request to the following URI:
/EmailAction/action-id
