Retrieving Assets/Files via API


During the integration of files in monday, I’ve stumbled upon the mystery of downloading files via the API or, in general a GET request.

While getting the x.monday/protected_static/xxx/resources and so on is retrievable from the row and column, I’ve found no possibility to actually GET the file in any shape.

I will only get the 401 with the actual API key.

Is there any other way one is able to access the file?

See API v2 - Querying and Mutating File Column

It would be great to get someone from Monday to weigh in on this one. The other thread seems to have gone a little stale and also suggests that this feature would be live by now, but it’s not documented.

The GraphQL API allows you to make GET requests to retrieve data (queries) but it’s not recommended.

If you make a POST request to our API, you can access assets in your account. You can even generate a temporary link to your asset (valid for 1 hour).
