Raw Post Body for POST API


#1

Is there a way to view an existing post I’ve created and what that looks like if I want to use it for a a template when making a POST api request with the “raw” field?

Thanks!

There are probably many ways of doing this like using the chrome dev tools, looking in the db, but here is one way: If you can get the post id which you can do by going to the topic url and append .json. For example this topic:

https://meta.discourse.org/t/raw-post-body-for-post-api/85128.json

Then you can get the post id from the json:

{"post_stream":{"posts":[{"id":409746,

Then go to:

https://meta.discourse.org/posts/409746.json

and you can see the ‘raw’ field:
