The List Maps web service returns a list of all maps available on the Fluid Topics server:


- User rights are taken into account when the appropriate Authorization header is provided, otherwise only public results are returned. Before Fluid Topics v3.4.12, Fluid Topics systematically used a prefixed version of the header: FT-Authorization. From Fluid Topics v3.4.12, both prefixed and not prefixed headers work.

- Clustering is not available for this web service.

After listing the maps, it is possible to use endpoints to target and retrieve specific information within a map. The following lines show an example of the List Maps web service implementation in Python.

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import requests
FT_SERVER_URL = 'https:// <host>/<serviceId>/<status>/'

MAPS_ENDPOINT = '/api/khub/maps'

HEADERS = {'FT-Authorization': 'Basic ...'}

def crawl_maps():

def crawl_map(map_preview):
URL = FT_SERVER_URL + map_preview['mapApiEndpoint']

Use a REST Client tool like Postman to retrieve the Basic authentication key as in the following illustration: The Basic authentication key can be retrieved using Postman

Since the List Maps web service returns all maps on a Fluid Topics server, it is also possible to use it to crawl maps.
