The documentation describes `typeDefName` as follows:

 

> The type definition name of the file. If the file is associated with folder and the client does not provide the value of this parameter, the file-service tries to find the best possible value using type-registry service. If it fails to find a default value, it defaults to "file".

 

In order to enable the client to provide the correct value for this parameter, would it be possible to get the list of potential values?

 

Is the "type-registry" service documented / available to end users?

The file service does the following query to the types-registry service, to get matching typeDefName

/types/types?filter=and(startsWith(name,file_),contains(mediaTypes,"xyz"))

 Let me know if this answers the question.

Hi @AllanBowe,

Happy New Year! I've posed the question to a developer. He's in the AP region, so I probably won't hear anything until tomorrow. I'll post the response here, once I get something back.

Thanks,

Joe

Thanks both!

 

Yes it answers the question.  I've taken a dump of the types/types endpoint in case anyone else needs the same info: https://gist.github.com/allanbowe/32a47a78e386b3517dd22f292108f2f9
