  • URL:https://[root]/content/users/[userName]/canReassignItems(POST only)
  • Version Introduced:ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0

Example usage

The following is a sample ArcGIS Enterprise POST request for the canReassignItems operation:

POST /webadaptor/sharing/rest/content/users/itemOwner/canReassignItems HTTP/1.1
Host: machine.domain.com
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: []

items=0000737d2de44ea0a275a7fceba4da73&targetUsername=newOwner&f=pjson

Description

The canReassignItems operation checks whether the items owned by one user can be successfully reassigned to a specified user before performing the reassignItems operation. Users assigned the default administrator role, or a custom role with administrative privileges, can perform this operation. The item owner can also use this operation; if the item owner that performs this operation is not a default administrator, or assigned a custom role with administrative privileges, they must have the portal:user:reassignItems privilege assigned to them to transfer content to another user.

Note:
If any of the items that are being reassigned have a private sharing level, the receiving member must have sharing access to all groups which those items are currently shared to.

items

A comma-separated list of item IDs that will have their ownership transferred. The maximum number of items that can be transferred at one time is 100.

Example

The username of the user the items will be reassigned to. For a user to be eligible to receive transferred content, they must meet the following requirements:

  • The user must be assigned the portal:user:receiveItems privilege to receive the transferred content.
  • The user must have a user type that allows them to own content. To learn more about user types, see the User types, roles, and privileges topic.
  • If the items being transferred to the user are shared with a group, the user receiving the items must be a member of the group. If the group is a view-only group, the user receiving the items must be the group owner or a group manager.

If the above requirements are not met, an error response will be returned.
