Documents

Vault is a very configurable system designed to reflect the business model of documents. Each vault can have different document types, document fields, etc. The Document Metadata APIs allow you to query the vault to understand what document-based metadata is available to use.

Retrieve all document fields and field properties which are common to (shared by) a specified set of documents. This allows you to determine which document fields are eligible for bulk update.

Learn about Shared Fields in Vault Help.

POST /api/{version}/metadata/objects/documents/properties/find_common

Headers

Name Description
Content-Type application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Accept application/json (default) or application/xml

Body Parameters

Name Description
docIds Input a comma-separated list of document id field values.

Response Details

The response includes all fields shared by the three documents (docIds=101,102,103).

Vault allows you to reuse fields across multiple document types by creating shared fields, which exist outside the context of a document type. You can create shared fields or convert existing fields into shared fields in the Vault Admin application. If a shared field is only used in one document type, you can also convert it to a non-shared field. All document fields include the Boolean shared document field. A value of true indicates which the field is shared and the following additional fields are included:

Note the following field metadata:

Metadata Field Description
shared May be set to true or false.
usedIn (key) When "shared": true, this lists the document types/subtypes/classifications which share the field.
usedIn (type) When "shared": true, this indicates if the shared field is defined at the document type, subtype, or classification level.

Retrieve Document Types

Document type refers both to the structure of hierarchical fields (Type > Subtype > Classification) that determines the relevant document fields, rendition types, and other settings for a document, and to the highest level in that hierarchy. Learn about Configuring Document Types in Vault Help.

POST /api/{version}/objects/documents

Headers

Name Description
Content-Type multipart/form-data
Accept application/json (default) or application/xml

Body Parameters

There are multiple ways to create a document.

Create Document from Uploaded File

Most documents in your vault are created from uploaded source files, such as a file from your computer. Learn about Supported File Formats in Vault Help. Once uploaded with values assigned to document fields, Vault generates the viewable rendition, e.g., “mydocument.docx.pdf”. Learn about Viewable Renditions in Vault Help.

Name Description
file The filepath of the source document. The maximum allowed file size is 4GB.
type__v The name of the document type to assign to the new document.
subtype__v The name of the document subtype (if one exists on the document type).
classification__v The name of the document classification (if one exists on the document subtype).
lifecycle__v The name of the document lifecycle to assign to the new document.
major_version_number__v The major version number to assign to the new document.
minor_version_number__v The minor version number to assign to the new document.
Create Document from Template

When you create the new document, Vault copies the template file and uses that copy as the source file for the new document. This process bypasses the content upload process and allows for more consistent document creation. Document templates are associated with a specific document type, like documents themselves. Learn about Document Templates in Vault Help.

Name Description
fromTemplate The name of the template to apply.
type__v The name of the document type to assign to the new document.
subtype__v The name of the document subtype (if applicable).
classification__v The name of the document classification (if one exists on the document subtype).
lifecycle__v The name of the document lifecycle to assign to the new document.
major_version_number__v The major version number to assign to the new document.
minor_version_number__v The minor version number to assign to the new document.
Create Content Placeholder Document

Creating a content placeholder document is just like creating a document from an uploaded file, but the file parameter is not included in the request. Learn about Content Placeholders in Vault Help. Admin may set other standard or custom document fields to required in your vault.

Name Description
name__v The name of the new document.
type__v The name of the document type to assign to the new document.
subtype__v The name of the document subtype (if one exists on the document type).
classification__v The name of the document classification (if one exists on the document subtype).
lifecycle__v The name of the document lifecycle to assign to the new document.
major_version_number__v The major version number to assign to the new document.
minor_version_number__v The minor version number to assign to the new document.
Create Unclassified Document

Unclassified documents are documents which have a source file, but no document type. Learn about Unclassified Documents in Vault Help.

Name Description
file The filepath of the source document. The maximum allowed file size is 4GB.
type__v Set the document type to “Undefined”.
lifecycle__v Set the document lifecycle to “Unclassified”.

In eTMF vaults, you can also (optionally) set the following fields:

Any other fields included in the input will be ignored. The document name__v will default to the name of the uploaded file.

When creating a CrossLink document, you must include all document fields that are required for the specified document type/subtype/classification and no file is uploaded. You must also specify the vault ID and document ID for the source document which will be bound to the new CrossLink document. Learn about CrossLinks in Vault Help.

Name Description
name__v The name of the new CrossLink document.
type__v The name of the document type to assign to the new CrossLink document.
subtype__v The name of the document subtype (if one exists on the document type).
classification__v The name of the document classification (if one exists on the document subtype).
lifecycle__v The name of the document lifecycle to assign to the new CrossLink document.
major_version_number__v The major version number to assign to the new CrossLink document
minor_version_number__v The minor version number to assign to the new CrossLink document.
source_vault_id__v The vault id field value of the vault containing the source document that will be bound to the new CrossLink document. Learn more.
source_document_id__v The document id field value of the source document that will be bound to the new CrossLink document.
source_binding_rule__v Optional: Possible values are Latest version, Latest Steady State version, or Specific Document version. These define which version of the source document will be bound to the CrossLink document. If not specified, this defaults to the Latest Steady State version.
bound_source_major_version__v Optional: When the source_binding_rule__v is set to Specific Document version, you must specify the major version number of the source document to bind to the CrossLink document.
bound_source_minor_version__v Optional: When the source_binding_rule__v is set to Specific Document version, you must specify the minor version number of the source document to bind to the CrossLink document.

URI Path Parameters

Name Description
{doc_id} The document id field value.

Query String Parameters

To create a new draft version from the existing document in the vault, include createDraft=latestContent in the input as shown in Request 1 below. This does not require uploading a file. For example, you want to create version 0.2 from the existing version 0.1. This is analogous to using the Create Draft action in the UI.

To create a new draft version by uploading and replacing the document source file, include the createDraft=uploadedContent in the input as shown in Request 2 below. This requires uploading a new source file. To upload the file, use the multi-part attachment with the file component "file={file_name}". The maximum allowed file size is 4GB. For example, you want to create version 0.2 but do not want to use the existing version 0.1. This is analogous to using the Upload New Version action in the UI.

Name Description
suppressRendition Set to true. With either of the above options, you may suppress automatic generation of the viewable rendition. This is shown in Request 3 below.

Delete Documents

After deleting documents, the API allows you to retrieve their IDs for up to 30 days. The deleted files themselves are removed from the server and can only be retrieved by Vault Support.

{attachment_id} The attachment id field value.

Response Details

The md5checksum__v field is calculated on the latest version of the attachment. If an attachment is added which has the same MD5 checksum value as an existing attachment on a given document, the new attachment is not added.

Vault Document Attachments include the following fields (metadata):

Field Name Description
id ID of the attachment. This is set by the system.
version__v Version of the attachment. Attachment versioning uses integer numbers beginning with 1 and incrementing sequentially (1, 2, 3,…). There is no concept of major or minor version numbers with attachments.
filename__v File name of the attachment.
description__v Optional description added to the attachment. You can add descriptions up to 1000 characters in length.
format__v File format of the attachment. You can add any type of file as an attachment.
size__v File size of the attachment. You can add up to 50 attachments to a document; each must be under 2GB.
md5checksum__v MD5 checksum value calculated for the attachment. To avoid creating identical versions, Vault assigns each a checksum value. When you add an attachment with the same file name and checksum value, Vault ignores the new file and does not version the existing attachment.
created_by__v User ID of the person who created the attachment.
created_date__v Date the attachment was created.
versions[n] List of links to earlier versions of the attachment.

The Vault Document Tokens API allows you to generates document access tokens needed by the external viewer to view documents outside of Vault. Learn more.

POST /api/{version}/objects/documents/tokens

Headers

Name Description
Content-Type application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Accept application/json (default) or application/xml

Body Parameters

Name Description
docIds Required: Include the docIds request parameter with a comma-separated string of document id values. This will generate tokens for each document. For example: docIds=101,102,103,104
expiryDateOffset Optional: Include the expiryDateOffset request parameter set to the number of days after which the tokens will expire and the documents will no longer be available in the viewer. If not specified, the tokens will expire after 10 years by default.
downloadOption Optional: Include the downloadOption request parameter set to PDF, source, both, or none. These allow users viewing the document to be able to download a PDF version or source version (Word, PPT, etc.) of the document. If not specified, the download options default to those set on each document.
channel Optional: Include the channel request parameter set to the website object record id value that corresponds to the distribution channel where the document is being made available.
tokenGroup Include the tokenGroup request parameter. This only required if you want to group together generated tokens for multiple documents in order to display the documents being referenced in the same viewer. This value accepts strings of alphanumeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and single consecutive underscores) up to 255 characters in length. The token that is passed as a URL parameter to the External Viewer is the primary token and the document it references will be displayed normally. However, any additional documents that have tokens generated with the same case-sensitive tokenGroup string will be displayed in a sidebar of the viewer. The order of documents in the sidebar depends on the order in which the tokens are generated. If multiple tokens are generated with one request, the documents will be ordered top-to-bottom based on the order they are passed to the docIds parameter. For example: If passing the parameters docIds=101,102,103,104 and tokenGroup=group_1 with the request, the top-to-bottom order in the sidebar will be documents 101, 102, 103, 104. If a new request is then made with the parameters docIds=105 and tokenGroup=group_1, document 105 will be added below document 104 in the previous list.

Response Details

In the example above, tokens are generated for the first three documents. The fourth document could not be found. This indicates either an incorrect document id or that the specified document is a binder.

Binders

Binders organize documents, sections, and other binders into a hierarchical structure that is useful for packaging related documents together for easier management or eventual publishing. Binders are a kind of document and many of the Document API calls, such as metadata, retrieving and setting properties, security, etc. can be used directly on a binder and will not be replicated here. All API calls related to files and renditions will not work on a binder object. Binders do have unique APIs that allow for interrogating and manipulating the binder structure.

In Vault, binders are just another kind of document. Therefore, to retrieve a list of all binders in your vault, you must use the same API endpoint to retrieve documents. By searching the response, you can distinguish binders from documents by using the document field binder__v set to true or false. See the response details below. Note that nested binders (a binder contained within another binder) are not retrieved.

This endpoint does not retrieve binder sections, which means the response will not include binders within other binder sections. To retrieve all metadata configured on a binder, including sections, you must use the binder IDs retrieved from this request in the Retrieve Binder endpoint.

Alternatively, you can use VQL to find just binders SELECT id FROM documents WHERE binder__v=true. See the Vault Query Language documentation for details.

GET /api/{version}/objects/binders/{binder_id}

Headers

Name Description
Accept application/json (default) or application/xml

URI Path Parameters

Name Description
{binder_id} The binder id field value.

Retrieve all fields and values configured on a specific binder in you vault. By default, the response only includes the first level (root) of the binder structure. To retrieve all levels, use one of the depth parameters described below.

Query String Parameters

Name Description
depth To retrieve all information in all levels of the binder, set this to all. By default, only one level is returned.

Response Details

The abridged response above shows fields and values configured on binder "id": 29, including the first level of binder nodes in the binder’s structure. In this first level, there is one document "id": 567 and two sections "section_number__v": "1" and "section_number__v": "2". The second example below, uses the depth=all request parameter to retrieve all levels of binder nodes in the binder’s structure.

On SUCCESS, Vault retrieves the fields and components of the binder in a hierarchical structure clearly showing the parent-child relationships for each item and maintaining the specific order of the objects in each level.

Response Details

For each node in a binder, the API returns the following fields:

Field Name Description
nodes [n] List of all nodes (documents and sections) at each level in the binder.
properties [n] List of all properties associated with each document or section node.
order__v Order of the node (document or section) within the binder or within the binder section. Note: There is a known issue affecting this parameter. It may not accurately reflect order.
section_number__v Optional number which can be added to each section.
type Type of node (document or section).
document_id__v The document ID of the document in the binder. This is the same as the document’s actual document id
id The document ID or section ID specific to the binder. For documents, this is different from the document’s actual document id.
parent_id__v Section ID of the parent node, e.g., “rootNode”.
name__v Name of the document or section. For sections, this is the name of the “subfolder” seen in the binder hierarchy in the UI.
major_version_number__v If the document binding rule is “specific”, this is major version number of the document.
minor_version_number__v If the document binding rule is “specific”, this is minor version number of the document.

Reclassify allows you to change the document type of an existing binder. A document “type” is the combination of the type__v, subtype__v, and classification__v fields on a binder. When you reclassify, Vault may add or remove certain fields on the binder. You can only reclassify the latest version of a binder and only one binder at a time. The API does not currently support Bulk Reclassify.

Retrieve the metadata which defines the shape of binder template nodes in your vault.

GET /api/{version}/metadata/objects/binders/templates/bindernodes

Headers

Name Description
Accept application/json (default) or application/xml or text/csv

Response Details

Binder “nodes” are individual sections or documents in the binder template hierarchy. These can include folders and subfolders in the binder or documents existing within the sections.

Field Name Description
id For a given binder, these are the binder node (section or planned document) IDs.
parent_id__v For a given binder template node, this is the node ID of its parent node. The top-level node is the rootNode.
node_type__v Binder node types include section and planned_document (content placeholder documents within the binder template).
label__v Binder template node label (name). For section node types, this is the name of the folder within the binder template. Example: "label__v": "Operational Procedures". For planned document node types, this is the name of the content placeholder document and may include document field tokens. Example: "label__v": "${study_b} - ${site_b} Operational Procedure".
number__v These apply to binder section node types and are a numerical representation of the section’s hierarchy within the binder template. Example: Given two folders in a binder (under the root node), each containing three subfolders, the first and second folder numbers would be 01 and 02, respectively. The three subfolder numbers within the first and second folders would then be 01.01, 01.02, 01.03 and 02.01, 02.02, 02.03, respectively.
order__v Order of the node within the binder or within the parent node. Note: There is a known issue affecting this parameter. It may not accurately reflect order.
type__v Name of the document type to which templates are associated.
subtype__v Name of the document subtype to which templates are associated.
classification__v Name of the document classification to which templates are associated.
lifecycle__v Name of the binder lifecycle to which templates are associated.
document_template__v Name of the planned document template.
milestone_type__v eTMF vaults only. Name of the milestone type associated with the planned document template.
hierarchy_mapping__v eTMF vaults only. Object ID pointing to the lowest level in the TMF reference model.
Metadata Field Description
name The binder template node field name (id, parent_id__v, node_type__v, etc.).
type The binder template field type. This can be one of ID, String, Number, Enum, or Component.
requiredness Indicates whether or not a value must be added when creating a binder template. These include:
- required : A value must be added.
- conditional : For a template to exist at the document subtype or classification level, this is required.
editable Boolean (true/false) field indicating whether or not a value can be added or edited by a user when creating or updating a binder template.
multi_value Boolean (true/false) field indicating whether or not the field can have multiple values.
component The component property applies to the type__v, subtype__v, classification__v, and lifecycle__v fields and defines the data type that can be set into this field.

URI Path Parameters

Name Description
{template_name} The binder template name__v field value.

Response Details

The response lists all attributes configured on each node of a specific binder template in the vault. The binder template shown above has six nodes.

Field Name Description
id The binder node (section or planned document) IDs.
parent_id__v The node ID of a section or planned document’s parent node. The top-level node is the rootNode.
node_type__v Binder node types include section and planned_document (content placeholder documents within the binder template).
label__v Label of the binder section or planned document.
type__v Vault document type to which planned documents are associated.
subtype__v Vault document subtype to which planned documents are associated. This field is only displayed if the planned document exists at the document subtype or classification level.
classification__v Vault document classification to which planned documents are associated. This field is only displayed if the planned document exists at the document classification level.
lifecycle__v Name of the binder lifecycle to which planned documents are associated.
number__v These apply to binder section node types and are a numerical representation of the section’s hierarchy within the binder template. Example: Given two folders in a binder (under the root node), each containing three subfolders, the first and second folder numbers would be 01 and 02, respectively. The three subfolder numbers within the first and second folders would then be 01.01, 01.02, 01.03 and 02.01, 02.02, 02.03, respectively.
order__v Order of the node within the binder or within the parent node. Note: There is a known issue affecting this parameter. It may not accurately reflect order.

Objects

Each vault is configured with a set of standard objects (product__v, country__v, study__v, etc.). These vary by application and configuration.

Admins may also create custom objects (region__c, agency__c, manufacturer__c, etc.). Vault limits the total number of custom objects that Admins can create in a single vault. By default, the limit is 20.

Each object can have multiple object records. For example, the product__v object may have records for products named CholeCap, Nyaxa, and WonderDrug. All object records are user-defined.
