Changing place avatar

Avatars don't change through /place/update, you must use either assign (to set avatar to one of preset icons), or upload (to upload your own image).

API actions

API path: /place/avatar.

upload

Uploads avatar image for specified place.

required sub-user rights: place_update.

Then it will be available from [api_base_url]/<api_static_uri>/place/avatars/<file_name> e.g. https://api.navixy.com/v2/static/place/avatars/abcdef123456789.png.

avatar_file_name returned in response and will be returned from place/list.

MUST be a POST multipart request (multipart/form-data), with one of the parts being an image file upload (with the name "file").

File part mime type must be one of:

  • image/jpeg or image/pjpeg
  • image/png
  • image/gif
parameters
name description type
place_id ID of the place. int
file Image file. File upload

    "success": true,
    "value": "Avatar file name"
}
  • value - string. Avatar file name.

errors

  • 201 (Not found in the database) – when place with place_id not found.
  • 233 (No data file) – if file part not passed.
  • 234 (Invalid data format) – if passed file with unexpected mime type.
  • 254 (Cannot save file) – on some file system errors.

assign

Assigns icon_id (from standard icon set) to this place. icon_id can be null – this means that uploaded avatar should be used instead of icon.

required sub-user rights: place_update.

icon_id Optional. ID of the icon from standard icon set. int
